A Letter from Julie
For over 10 years I've dedicated my life to serving individuals, families, & communities throughout Utah with a proven track record of fighting for and defending our freedoms. As the Covid-19 pandemic began to unfold, it became clear to me that we needed stronger conservative leaders fighting for Utah.
Government overreach & unnecessary mandates caused our communities a great deal of additional, needless struggle and suffering. As a mayor during this period, one of my core focuses was to provide people with the best information available at any given time, allowing them to make their own decisions on how to best take care of their unique needs.
To protect and support the economy of our growing city I personally met with and strategized with local businesses. We developed innovative plans to enhance their business models to operate through the circumstances, and I led the charge to quickly streamline, suspend, and deregulate many city codes/ordinances to give our local businesses the ability to stay open and survive. We cut the city's budget while creating a modest, but robust contingency of resources and plans regarding emergency services, tests, testing sites, emergency hospital partner sites and access, and medical supplies should the need arise. We also created remote opportunities for our staff, and community opportunities for people who felt more comfortable staying home.
My main job is to protect freedom, specifically life, liberty, and property. Executive mandates and emergency powers are dangerous. Although some in the state pushed me to take more power to "protect" the citizens, I chose to use the authority entrusted to me by the people to provide the information & tools people and small businesses needed to best care of themselves, along with maintaining necessary city services. I involved the city's legislative body and staff in all decisions, keeping power with the people.
I served on boards throughout the state, kept in constant communication with other leaders throughout Utah, and participated in weekly calls with White House representatives to ensure that I could effectively advocate for and protect the liberties of the people of Utah.
As 15 days to flatten the curve turned into months, I was deeply disheartened to see people going hungry, businesses failing, kids' education falling by the wayside, people scared to leave their homes, and so much more. By the Spring of 2020 various state and federal mandates forced many Utah businesses to close their doors. Despite these mandates & others against public gatherings, I supported the first Utah business revival in our city, inviting small businesses across Utah to come open up and sell their goods and services in our city. Thousands of Utahns throughout the state gathered to support these businesses & together we showed that Utah can & must continue to live, work, & be free even during difficult times.
Government's aggressive approach was also stifling freedom of speech, and so I told people from across the state that their voices could be heard in our city, giving a voice to an array of leadership from across the state who came to our city, joining together to share concerns over the course that government was taking and their commitment to finding a better path forward through the pandemic while protecting our liberties. We empowered people to take care of their needs and each other, make their own choices, and made it clear that life was going to go on.
In a time where people did not know where to stand, I stood advocating for the individuals, families, communities, and businesses of Utah by upholding the principles of individual liberty, limited government, and the Constitution. Without that document, the rule of law, and the sacrifice of those willing to defend and fight to protect it, our natural born freedoms are trampled upon. We need representatives to fight for those securities in the most difficult of circumstances.
Have you been represented & supported in a meaningful way that protects your liberties & supports the unique needs of you, your family, your businesses and your community? Government overreach and ineptitude has burdened us with high gas & food prices, broken supply chains, and an indoctrination of entitlement, incivility, and theories harmful to the unity and stability of our society. We have the opportunity to make meaningful change and empower Utah’s future together! I have a strong track record of conservative leadership, listening to and serving those that I represent, fighting for Utahns & defending your freedoms. I serve to keep Utah a place we all want to call home, for you and your families, for my sons, and for the generations to come.
The Declaration of Independence declares our God-given right to "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
The Constitution protects & secures these rights but only so long as we the people diligently safeguard & uphold this inspired document.
I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign
