This campaign is 100% people-funded. We aren't taking any money from corporate PACs or lobbyists, because we believe that your representative should work for you.
Jamie grew up in Wyoming and moved to Utah nearly a decade ago, and she now lives in Ogden with her husband and daughter. She works as a Licensed Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor, helping many of the most vulnerable populations find greater independence through gainful and fulfilling employment. Through her work, Jamie has served as both Social Media Specialist and as President of Utah’s chapter of Job Placement and Development and is currently the President-elect of the Utah Rehabilitation Association.
She also has used her time as a volunteer for both high school and college debate teams and is active with her county chapter of the Utah Democratic Party. Jamie is running for Congress because she believes that the people of Utah’s 1st District have been left behind for too long. She wants to go to Congress to stand up for working people across Utah and to take back our government from the stranglehold of special interests.
"We face a pivotal moment in our American experiment that demands bold progressive action to meet the challenges of the present. Our great nation is built on the promise of progress, on the principle of equality, and on the passion for justice."
"I’m running because Utah Deserves Better than corporate-apologist politicians working on behalf of a tiny, wealthy elite. Gerrymandering and voter suppression have lulled too many into political apathy. It has made our elected officials unaccountable to the people and impervious to public sentiment. It is time for new thinking from a new generation of leaders. As your representative, I will advocate for your access to healthcare and a living wage; I will work hard to preserve your right to fair elections and a sustainable future; and I will fight to lift the burdens of student loan debt and rising tuition rates that impede social mobility and economic opportunity for all."
