A new voice for rural Utah
Originally from West Jordan, Utah, Tim lives in Green River with his wife and two kids. He is the Democratic candidate for Utah House District 69.
As someone who has committed his career to preserving the historic and cultural resources of Utah, Tim believes we can honor our past while creating a strong vision for our future. In rural Utah, we don't have to be limited by what we've been. We can celebrate our heritage, while we chase after the economic future we want for ourselves. Tim is running because he wants to serve our community, and he believes we're in a critical time for economic and community development.
Before moving to Green River, Tim earned his Bachelor and Master's of Arts in U.S. History from the University of Utah. He worked for the American West Center, writing a history of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest and a document that outlines historic resource use for the Shoshone-Bannock tribes.
As a local resident, Tim has been active in the community (sometimes, if you ask his wife, a little too active). He sits on the Green River trails committee, serves on the board of directors for a local youth education non-profit organization, and has raised thousands of dollars for improvements to some of Green River's public spaces.
On a state level, Tim sits on the Office of Museum Services advisory board with the Utah Division of Arts and Museums, and recently cycled off the Utah Museum Association board of trustees. He is also the chair of the Emery County Democratic Party.
As someone who defines himself not as a charismatic leader, but as an influencer in a group of people, Tim has the perfect skill set to make a difference for Southeastern Utah in the Utah House of Representatives.
