My Philosophy on Government
At the federal level, our leaders too often name call and dehumanize all who disagree with them. I reject that pattern. 

At the state level, our leaders often do the same. I respectfully choose a different path.

At the county level, our leaders are our neighbors. When parties categorize and denigrate each other here, we are choosing incivility as our character.

At all levels, fringe politics generate a conspiracy mindset that defeats all progress. None of us is 100% right or 100% wrong. We can all learn from each other. As the amateur philosopher Rodney King asked, "Can't we all just get along?" I pledge to get along with and learn from my opponents.

I believed all these things as an active member of one of the dominant parties for decades; but I found that I was "othered" when I spoke up. So I joined the UUP in order to try to become a UNITER.

I am committed to being a balancer and a Uniter on the Salt Lake County Council.
