Why I'm Running for Utah Governor

The past few weeks have been some of the most difficult in Utah history. We have all worried about our families and our neighbors. We've worried about the future. I'm running for Governor because I believe Utah's best days are ahead of us. And having served as Lieutenant Governor during the most prosperous decade in our state's history, I've seen firsthand what it takes to build a strong, vibrant economy in the wake of economic disaster. I'm confident that with the right leadership, we will do it again.


Under Lt. Governor Spencer Cox’s Leadership

Utah became one of the most prosperous and well managed states in the country. As Governor, Spencer is committed to rebuilding our economy, stronger and more prosperous than ever before.

Spencer Cox Issues - Economy

As our state continues to implement our plan for health and economic recovery, Lt. Governor Spencer Cox and Senator Deidre Henderson propose a seven-point plan to increase Utah’s long-term resiliency and prosperity. Spencer is Utah’s homegrown candidate for governor, and his administration will make Utah our country’s most financially sound and self-sufficient state.


Spencer Cox Issues - Education

Spencer strongly supports teachers and believes that teaching should be a joyful and highly respected profession. Teachers deserve to be praised and elevated. Teachers also need to be compensated fairly and be given the flexibility they need to succeed. Spencer knows education is a state and local prerogative and that federal involvement in education should be minimized to the greatest extent possible so that teachers can get back to doing what they do best – teaching.


Spencer Cox Issues - Rural Focus

Utah’s seen a decade of incredible growth and prosperity. But some areas of the state—especially those outside the Wasatch Front—haven’t experienced the same level of success. That’s why I’m planning a major overhaul of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development to prioritize economic development in rural areas and installing the first “rural chief of staff” in the governor’s office.


Spencer Cox Issues - Politics

In Utah, our willingness to help our neighbors and collaborate to solve problems makes us unique in this increasingly toxic environment of tribalism. We have the potential to show the rest of the country how to treat one another, reach consensus on difficult issues and build thriving communities.

As governor, Spencer will also continue what he started on the campaign trail—help draw attention to the power of service and voluntary civic action. Government can’t solve all of society’s problems, but private initiative and active community organizations are vital to a thriving and cohesive state.
