Utahns’ voices deserve to be heard but over the past five years, career politicians have disregarded the will of the people by gutting voter-approved ballot initiatives, eliminating crucial campaign finance laws, and gerrymandering congressional districts. They are hurting the institution that Americans hold most dear: the democratic process.
Chris Peterson believes unequivocally in maintaining the integrity of Utah’s democracy: Votes should count, companies and PACs shouldn’t be able to buy elections, and all Utahns should be represented fairly. Elected officials have lost sight of the integrity, teamwork, and sound judgement that defines their constituents. Chris Peterson will bring honesty and transparency to the governorship and work to build trust between voters and their public servants.
