As we get closer to the general election in November, many supporters have been asking how they can help make sure Phil wins his race to represent District 73 in the Utah State Legislature. As he has traveled the district and met with the voters, he is feeling good about his chances, but he doesn’t want to take anything for granted. He could use your help. Here are three things you can do.
Last week Phil was at a meeting with some other legislators. They told him that often a few dozen constituents can make the difference in helping them decide how to vote. This is why Phil so strongly believes in empowering local governement – you can make a difference. Since he is running to fill the shoes of Representative Mike Noel, he knows he needs to go and make an impact. He will be more likely to succeed if he can maintain a strong connection to those who live in District 73. If you sign up for his newsletter, he will keep you updated on his work as your legislator, and he will also let you know how you can be more effective in helping him succeed.
Many of you have known Phil and worked with him over the years as he has fought for rural Utahns. He would love it if you would take a few minutes to share a few reasons why you support him in this race. You can share your endorsement of Phil on this website, and we will publish them on his endorsements page. Then you can share your endorsement with your friends, family and neighbors.
As ballots hit the mail, anyone who wants to volunteer to reach out to your neighbors to remind them to vote can sign up to help make sure the votes Phil needs to win get cast. If you sign up to volunteer, we will reach out to you to find out if there are other unique things you can do to help with this campaign.
Like most state legislators, Phil isn’t running for the money. He doesn’t like asking for donations, because he knows how hard voters in Dsitrict 73 work to get by. However, he has also seen what happens to rural Utah when wealthy out-of-state donors show up to influence policy outcomes. Look no further than the $39 million that was spent to get Bears Ears designated as a national monument. Phil’s opponent isn’t shy about her connection to the environmental movement that wants to have its way with Southern Utah, and this movement is willing to spend millions of dollars to get what it wants. Phil doesn’t need millions of dollars to win this race, but if his numerous supporters in District 73 each make a small donation, it will give him the resources he needs to make his final two month push before the election.
