How have the arts, culture, and/or humanities impacted your life?
- I learned at an early age doing pottery that "form follows function", and this has stayed with me ever since.
Utah's humanities and arts employ 123,000 Utahns, provide $4.4 billion in earnings, and $13.2 billion in sales. This is a larger economic impact than agriculture, mining, and real estate. Do you consider the arts and cultural sector an economic driver in Utah?
Fiscally responsible government investment in the arts and humanities (including humanities and arts education) means to me:
- Balancing the Utah State Budget will be of paramount importance.
I support the following legislative items:
- Grants to be used for operations (jobs) as soon as possible
- Fiscally responsible government investment in arts and humanities organizations.
- Reducing regulations of creative businesses.
- Capital investment (in museums, performance/concert halls, studios, galleries, nonprofit office space, etc.).
- Allowing municipalities to set design standards
- K-6 Students should have increased exposure to arts and humanities education
- 7-12 Students should have increased exposure to arts and humanities education
Anything else we should know about you?
- Education and the Arts work best when closest to the people. Government cannot favor one set of people over another, and whatever is provided to one group must also be protected and available to another.
