Conservative values are under attack. As the father of three little boys and with a background in education, coaching, and law — I am focused on the future of our children. As a State Senator, I will be unrelenting in my determination to ensure that the future of our children is one filled with the education they need to preserve Freedom and Prosperity.

I am dismayed with the overreach of Government perpetrated on Utah during the Covid – 19 pandemic, and the rampant abuse of “emergency” powers used to shut down local business, mask children in schools, and push for mandates. I will push back against Federal overreach and work to reclaim powers reserved for States including our control over land usurped by Federal Agencies.

I stand for the principles of limited government provided by the Constitution and our Founding Fathers and will work to ensure that my power in the legislature will be directed to protecting our unalienable rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness and removing regulation rather than limiting freedom and increasing regulation as has been the status quo.

I am running to stand up and fight against government overreach. I will fight against the growth of government and not back down. I will lead and work and fight while inspiring more fighters to enter the fray and join under the banner of freedom. More energy production, less regulation of education and small business, fewer taxes, more state sovereignty, more protection for life and for 2nd Amendment rights. I will stand for the State Republican Platform, and I will not back down.

As a firm Constitutional conservative, I stand for the values of the constitution in it’s original form and will protect the vision laid out by our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence that Government derives its power from the consent of the governed and that it is put in place to protect the unalienable rights given to us by God of “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

I will spend my time at the State Capital strengthening the State of Utah against Federal interference and strengthening local governments against State interference. I will make sure that I work to repeal bad legislation, and that the bills that I do bring forward are focused on preserving individual liberties outlined in the Constitutional Amendments. 

I will focus much of my legislative energy on passing bills that will protect our citizens against future big government overreach, and will work to make it illegal to mandate health choices, track our social and political views, or have government decide how our children are educated on cultural, social, and medical issues.
