When a representative is elected to public office, it is their duty to be a voice for the people within their district, to protect the rights of the people, and to create legislation to serve their best interests. When we can rely on honest representation, we are able to focus on our own lives, and the needs of our own families.
However, Utah’s current election laws lend to political corruption by allowing monied interests to purchase political power. This type of corruption is achieved through campaign contributions, which lobbyists use to advance candidates who will lend a helping hand to their goals. Therefore, our legislature has designed a system which elects those whose actions often contradict their responsibilities.
Rachel Nelson has pledged to refuse financial contributions from these so-called special interests, and is running a grassroots campaign for the people. She knows the value of true representation, and supports campaign finance reform.
