Rural Opportunity


While Utah’s urban areas have been growing and have experienced an extended period of economic prosperity, the same cannot always be said for the rural parts of our state. We simply cannot be satisfied with one level of economic prosperity along the Wasatch front and another for the families living in Utah’s rural areas.

To help Utah reach its full potential, we need all Utahns to have access to quality public and higher education, top-notch healthcare services and economic growth opportunities. Jon recently traveled to all 29 counties – as he has so many times before – and he’s heard inspiring stories of people who want to stay where they’ve grown up, companies who want to grow and workers who need more skills. As governor, Jon will make it a top priority to ensure rural Utah isn’t left behind as our state and our economy grow.
