  • How have the arts, culture, and/or humanities impacted your life?
    • I have four girls who love to draw, paint, dance and sing so we love them.
  • 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?
    • Yes
  • Fiscally responsible government investment in the arts and humanities (including humanities and arts education) means to me:
    • We have helped with bountiful arts, Layton and center point.
  • Items of Legislation I support:
    • I support the RAP tax
    • I will ensure existing fund balances are preserved for recreation, cultural organizations, and parks
    • Percent for public art programs, which optionally designate 1% of government capital costs for public art
    • Friendly ordinances that encourage public and private mural creation
    • Increased investment in public art projects to encourage murals, sculptures, utility wraps, and more
  • Would you elaborate on your answers above?
    • Given my educational background, support for the arts, and outlook on humanity, I would even seek to increase RAP funding in SL County.
  • I believe percent for art ordinances should apply to:
    • Public buildings
    • All government capital projects
  • Anything else we should know about you?
    • During my term I have been very supportive of the arts in my county
