I believe, and will support the following policies to greatly increase government accountability:
- Restore term limits to Utah’s government (the legislature overturned their own term limits in 2003). I promise to limit myself to no more than eight years in any political office under any circumstance, without exception.
- Introduce strong campaign finance limits for all elections, including limiting sources from where candidates can receive funds and how much can be spent on election campaigns. Utah currently has no campaign finance limits at all. This is always a recipe for corruption.
Greatly increased ethics reform, including requirements that elected officials completely recuse themselves for voting on any bills that potentially impacts their own financial well being or that of their family members. If it is unethical in the executive branch, it should be equally unethical for our legislators.
