Building a brighter future
 
Serving in the Utah House

My family has called South Jordan home for over 20 years. It has been my privilege to work alongside you as I served on the Jordan School Board and in the House of Representatives.

 

I have listened to you in town hall meetings, met you at community events, attended city council meetings, and visited with you on your door steps. I love the wonderful people in South Jordan, Sandy, and Riverton. I feel a sense of joy and humility to represent those who I consider to be the best people in the world. I have proven myself through my hard work bringing many needed changes to our community. These changes represent a wide variety of issues that affect District 45. 

 

I believe we need representatives who listen to you and find solutions, not soundbites. Below I have shared with you my priorities. I look forward to hearing from you.

 

"Working with Susan to help pass anti-pornography legislation has been an incredible opportunity. She is so responsive, and always calls or emails you back quickly. She is a great advocate for children and families. Susan is passionate about her work in the Legislature and really strives to serve and represent her constituents." Melissa McKay, South Jordan Resident

Responsive to Community Concerns

Responsive to Community Concerns

  • Local decisions are the best way to tailor effective and practical solutions to unique problems.

  • Respect the governance of cities, school districts, schools and families.

As a legislator:

  • I worked with representatives of the state and local health departments, education community, juvenile justice system, and other state and federal leaders to combat the e-cigarette/vaping epidemic among our young people. My bill, together with 2 other bills, will help schools eliminate vaping in schools, teach students the harmful effects of vaping, reduce the availability of e-cigarettes to youth under 21, and decrease the number of students who begin this addictive behavior by strengthening young people and families.

  • Sponsored a bill to reduce prostitution and trafficking by adding a first offenders education requirement that has seen a 40 - 60% reduction in recidivism.

  • Supported legislation that preserved local decision making.
