Aimee Winder Newton on Government Reform
Need strong planning for Utah's tremendous growth
Utah is experiencing tremendous growth in many areas of our state, which brings with it concerns over housing affordability, infrastructure for water and transportation, and air quality. As Governor, I will restore a strong planning component as one of
the key functions of the Governor's office. We will coordinate with legislators, local leaders, & our metropolitan planning organizations to ensure that we are promoting smart growth that balances the character of our communities with new opportunities.
I will work towards comprehensive local, regional, and state government coordination.
I firmly believe that government leaders need to take more seriously their charge to use tax dollars in a responsible way. On the county council I come prepared
with ideas on how to cut wasteful spending and to better utilize dollars to make long-term impact and investment for the state's second largest budget. As Governor, I will bring that same diligence and fiscal conservatism to the state budget.
