How can we be sure he truly wants to continue to represent Utahans. Let’s delve a bit deeper.

Trent Staggs: Local Focus and Grassroots Advocacy

First up, let’s look at Trent Staggs. A family man with a strong belief in local governance as well as an advocate for grassroots, Trent Staggs, is the current mayor of Riverton. His community service in local government started in 2013 on the city council. In 2017 the constituents chose him as Mayor, backing him on his values and commitments. Additionally he was re-elected in January 2022, proving more that his leadership for a better community is his highest priority.

Throughout his political career, Staggs has prioritized the needs of his community, engaging directly with residents to address their concerns and implement meaningful changes. His dedication to Riverton’s citizens has been evident in his unwavering commitment to improving local infrastructure, education, and public safety. It is exciting to see a new breath of fresh air, ideas and values want to extend that to his home state and lead them forward with these values.

Staggs has embraced an approach that emphasizes accessible and transparent governance. He actively seeks public input, ensuring that the voice of every resident is heard and considered. Trent Staggs understands that effective representation requires actively engaging with constituents and empowering them to participate in the decision-making process. His community-centered focus has won him support and admiration among the people of Riverton. Therefore we are backing him in his run for Senate.

Mitt Romney: National Influence and Policy Expertise

Now, looking at Mitt Romney, a seasoned politician with a national profile. He was born and raised in Michigan, though in a Mormon home. He didn’t actually reside in Utah with his family until January 2015. Although he did attend Brigham Young University after his marriage to his wife in 1969 and graduated in 1971. Doing the math, that means he spent at most 3 years in Utah before deciding to bring his family to Utah in 2015. Therefore he does bring a different set of experiences and priorities to the table. Prior to moving to Utah, he served the people of Massachusetts as Governor. Afterwards a couple unsuccessful runs at President. So why Utah?

Why he didn’t stay in Massachusetts and run for Senator there. Was he merely looking to improve his own personal resume? Now, we know that Romney possesses considerable expertise in shaping policy at the federal level. His national influence and experience have allowed him to advocate for Utah’s interests on a larger stage. However is he merely using Utah as a stepping stone and lengthening his term for other reasons?

Doing Due Diligence of Research

During Mitt Romney’s tenure as a senator from Utah there have been multiple shortcomings in fulfilling his campaign promises to the state’s citizens that we need to highlight. He is showing inconsistencies with supporting conservative policies, lacks opposition for the excessive spending. Additionally, the healthcare reform has only been very partially successful. More importantly, he is showing his inadequacy for advocating for the specific needs of Utah. Further raising concerns with his constituents that is gaining traction. Leaders must be held responsible for the commitments they make throughout their campaigns as representatives of the people. Like all residents, Utahns need representatives who continuously work to preserve the principles and objectives for which they were chosen.

With Trent Staggs, we see a man who is looking to the future generations. A strong belief of an education system giving back decision making and control to the parents. Rising across America, there are Corporations and Entrepreneurs coming up with Solutions for Educating K thru 12 and Higher Education in better and affordable ways.
