-Fiber- 

If you are in favor of less expensive utility rates. I am your candidate. I do not support the current administrations proposed city supported fiber Internet option that requires every household to pay a minimum of $10 a month for very basic Internet and businesses to pay a minimum of $20 for very basic Internet. The proposed plan does not allow for an opt out option. I cannot support this.  

-Property rights- 

If you are in support of more private property rights. I am your candidate. I do not support the current administrations ban on short term rentals such as VRBO's and Airbnb. 

-Fire station

Although I am a huge supporter of Public Safety and I am open to the idea of building a new fire station. If that's what the voters want. Yet, I currently support the idea of a Unified fire district in northern Utah County. (Not police just fire). If you are open to this idea I am your candidate.
