Rex Dungan // Republican // Iron County Assessor (D+)

  • How have the arts, culture, and/or humanities impacted your life?
    • I enjoy being transcended, even if only for a moment, when I have the opportunity to enjoy certain performances. I'm grateful to have these programs nearby and available for my entertainment.
  • 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:
    • Advocacy for future support and availability.
  • 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
    • My county's redevelopment authority should have a public art ordinance
  • Would you elaborate on your answers above?
    • I believe in organizing passive support that can be accessed, regardless of political perspective, for the benefit of those that aren't able to sustain such a reserve.
  • I believe percent for art ordinances should apply to:
    • Public buildings
    • Utilities
    • Private Developments
