I am and always have been a registered Republican and a true conservative. I deeply respect and champion the Republican platform and its foundational tenets:

- Limited Government: A government that governs least governs best. I will work tirelessly to ensure that unnecessary bureaucracy and regulations are minimized. 
The right to life is foundational to the principles of limited government. I will unapologetically stand for protecting life while minimizing government intrusion.

- Fiscal Responsibility: Ensuring that Utah spends wisely, I will advocate for low taxes, and responsible fiscal policies to secure our state's financial future.

- Individual Rights: Believing in the power and rights of every individual, I will defend our constitutional freedoms, ensuring that government never oversteps its bounds. Supporting the Second Amendment is a core value of my campaign.

- Free Market Principles: As a small business owner, I recognizing that free enterprise is at the heart of American prosperity. I will champion policies that support businesses and fuel economic growth in Utah.
