Issues: Rural Focus
Spencer isn’t one of those statewide politicians who pay lip service to rural Utahns. He is a rural Utahn. His family has lived and farmed in Sanpete County for six generations. In fact, when Governor Herbert asked Spencer to be his lieutenant governor six years ago, he accepted only if he could continue to live in Fairview—commuting 200 miles almost every day to serve the state.
So, no one understands better the need to bring the same level of prosperity the Wasatch Front has experienced to the rest of the state. It’s why Spencer will bring an enhanced rural focus to the Governor’s office. This will include a major overhaul of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development to prioritize economic development in rural areas, installing the first “rural chief of staff” in the governor’s office, and promoting the aggressive placement of state jobs in rural areas.
A Cox administration will make sure rural Utah is not forgotten and will represent all 29 counties and 248 cities and towns.
