What Ben will do: Ben believes Utahns deserve better than a dysfunctional government. Currently, partisan bickering keeps Congress from finding solutions to issues that matter to Utah families. Ben plans to put people over politics in Washington.
What Ben has done: Ben worked with both sides of the aisle in the Utah Legislature and as Salt Lake County mayor to balance the budget and act on important initiatives. He will continue to work with colleagues in both parties to overcome Washington’s broken politics and put Utah families first. He has proven bringing people together helps to solve tough problems like homelessness and criminal justice reform.
Ben believes Congress shouldn’t get paid if it can’t do its job to pass a budget. Utah families and small businesses balance their checkbooks and manage their budgets every month. They expect Congress to do the same.
