Utahns have seen tough times before and we are better prepared than anyone to meet the challenge.
This week has been one of dramatic interruption to our way of life. A pandemic has cancelled schools, forced many to work from home or not work at all, and raised questions about when life can get back to normal and what our economy will look like when it does — not to mention the largest earthquake to hit our state since 1992.

This past week, Jon penned an op-ed for the Salt Lake Tribune outlining ten things we need to do to minimize the damage to our economy as we take precautionary measures to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We hope you will take a few minutes to read it and to share it with your friends and family. We also released the following video to express the campaign’s conviction that we are all in this together and we will rise to meet the challenge.
I want to acknowledge county and city officials from across the state, in particular my running mate, Provo Mayor Michelle Kaufusi, for the way they have responded to an ever-changing situation. The best government is the one closest to the people and we need to allow local officials to adjust guidelines to fit their situations.
I have seen how people all around the world deal with difficulty and I can tell you that no other community comes together in the face of adversity like Utahns do. – Jon Huntsman
We face uncertainty again today. And together we will rise to meet the challenge, yet again.
That’s what Utahns do.
