Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I hope that in part you are doing so because you want to learn more about my platform and why I chose to represent the Democratic Party in this year’s election. First of all, I can tell you that it was not an easy decision to make.

I can assure you that it is not because of my ego! I am not running for the prospect of greater political offices down the road. I don’t even have a front page issue that I can ride all the way to victory. Instead, I chose to run because I believe in the principles of freedom that are guaranteed by the constitution of our country and state. I am running because I believe that the current political system is corrupted and lacks the necessary checks and balances to produce quality legislation.

I do not choose to see myself as running against unbeatable opponent, a political ideology that is inherently flawed, or people who would rather vote for an elephant than a person. I am running FOR  members of District 15 who want their voices to be heard, who want accountability in their government. I believe that once we allow any single party or ideology to so dominate a society, we no longer produce quality legislation. I want to change that. If elected to represent District 15, I would review legislation carefully and work relentlessly to hold the majority accountable.

In short, I chose to run because there are those like me who want to have a choice. There are those of us who go to the polls having researched candidates and platforms and have made informed decisions based on character and integrity, not party lines.  Of course I have takes on issues and you can read about them here. I hope that you will consider my candidacy and support me in November.

Sincerely,

Rich Miller

Candidate for Utah House District 15
