Hello All! It's been a busy few months at the Wilde home, I apologize for neglecting the political blog. Now that the campaign and election season are done, and the holidays are finished, I hope to be more consistent keeping it up to date. While the kids are busy playing, I will take a minute and update.
The summer and fall were spent parading, townhalling, meeting constituents, putting up many signs, and debating Democrat opponent Chris Neville. We spent long hours travelling to the various regions of HD53. We met many good people, and I appreciated hearing about their concerns and needs. Though Chris was a worthy opponent, and worked tirelessly in his campaign, our efforts paid off in the end, and I was re-elected for a second term as the representative for House District 53. I am humbled by your trust in me, and thankful for the opportunity to be your voice on the hill for two more years.
December brought a special legislative session to address the Medical Marijuana Initiative and the compromise bill that has caused such a stir. After reviewing both Proposition 2 and HB 3001, I decided to vote in favor of HB 3001. After the comparison of the bills, I felt that HB 3001 will help the most individuals safely over the years, that is why it won my vote. I've included a comparison from Libertas Institute that you may find helpful. As always, if you have questions about this or any other issue, please contact me.
Life has been pretty busy on the homefront as well. Our oldest moved to Snow College in August. She has completed her first semester, and is headed to Louisiana to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints in just a few weeks. Kim started working part-time as an aide at the Morgan Elementary Preschool, and loves it. The rest of the crew are enjoying school, finding fulfillment and being involved through drama, debate, and basketball.
As a family, we've enjoyed this holiday season, ins spite of the rush and busyness that invariably accompanies this time of year, we still had time to laugh and grow together. As we wrap up this year, we count our blessings. One thing that I continue to find gratitude for is the ability to serve in the state legislature. I am so thankful that the people of district 53 allow me to represent them. Thank you for placing your trust and your voice in me. I hope and pray that I can continue to be a voice for you, for local government, for agriculture, and for the rural way of life that I so dearly love. As always, if I can help you in any way, please text, call, or email me. In the meantime, I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
A rancher, family man and Council Chair in Morgan County, I will fight for local control of education, land, and agriculture in the Utah State Legislature
