We must become the change we wish to see

Walk With us

As an unaffiliated candidate, I’m starting from scratch and don’t have the already established infrastructure, funding, and party network that other candidates do. This means my campaign is about you, which is what I want it to be about. The strength of this campaign will come from our community residents of all types and kinds. We need you. We need your skills, experiences, vision and passions. Please be in touch, let me know more about you, and how you’d like to get involved. Walk with Us!
 
I look forward to getting acquainted
I want to provide all Davis County voters a choice in the General Election beyond party caucuses and conventions. I offer a bipartisan opportunity not dictated by party affiliation or chosen for partisan reasons. Do you know that all 20 candidates for Davis County offices were from the same party outside of this unaffiliated campaign? That was the case in 2022 and 2020 as well. In 2018, there was one Independent who competed in the County; all others were unopposed in the general election. In 2016, there was a Democrat who ran. This means the elected officials representing us are often chosen by just a small portion of the community. By the time general elections arrive, many of our County officials have already effectively won. First, by a small number of party citizens participating in the caucus and delegate convention system. Then, in a closed primary only accessible to those within the party, if there even is a primary. 
 
I’m not suggesting this system is inherently bad; they are great avenues to get involved and provide influence for some. However, what continues to play out in Davis County is a small portion of people choosing our elected officials without the input of the broader public. As you go to the ballot this November, you will see limited options to vote for in County offices. Most will go unchallenged at that point. Of the initial 12 Commissioner candidates, 11 were of the same majority party, with the other being my unaffiliated campaign. Surprisingly, one candidate was nominated in the April County Convention without a primary by a slim margin. Other highly regarded and moderate candidates did not make it to a primary. If my unaffiliated candidacy was not in the race, the Commissioner would have already effectively been chosen by a small number of delegates not likely representative of the general base, and without being put to any vote by the public. This is not to say we don’t have good, quality elected officials. I’ve followed, met and interacted with some of them, and have been very impressed by their competence, dedicated service and warmth. That has been encouraging and I’ve felt grateful for such. What I’m trying to point out is the value of more people having a voice in our community, and I hope you find yours. I invite you to join me; share your interests, priorities, and concerns; and be part of a bipartisan effort to do good without sides, opposing teams, and in collaboration with all.

For those of you who worry this election season may be less than unifying (hopefully our county elections will remain upstanding), consider listening here for a brighter message. Marley was a favorite artist of mine growing up and this song expresses what we all need a little (or a lot) more of.  So, take a listen, groove with the music if you’re in the mood, and feel alright.

Let's Get Together And Feel Alright
