My name is Stewart Barlow and I am running for re-election to the Utah House of Representatives District 17. First and foremost I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank you for your willingness to serve as a delegate. This is a time consuming process you have agreed to participate in and it can be exhausting. But it’s a good process, a process I believe in. The fruits of the caucus system are clearly good--we live in the one of the best managed states in the country with one of the best economies. I am proud to say that I have had the opportunity to make a significant difference at the legislature over the last few years. With my expertise as a medical doctor and as a business owner, I have become one of the go to voices among my legislative colleagues on issues related to health care, business and economic growth. Over the next few weeks leading up to the April 12th convention I intend to talk personally with every county delegate in the district. As a life-long resident of Davis County and having just spent the last two and a half years representing LD17 I feel like I have a pretty good idea about what makes this area great and what is important to LD17 residents, but I don’t know everything. I want to hear your ideas. I want to hear your opinion on how you would deal with issues such as common core, how to successfully shrink the government, improving our business climate and improving education in our state. I know I will not be the only one asking for your support but I promise you one thing; no one will spend more time or effort working to understand what is important to you and how best to represent you. Together we can deal with the important issues that face our state. I will be making every effort to contact you but please feel free to give me a call 801-721-5551 or email me at email@example.com to learn more about where I stand on the issues. I look forward to getting to know you better over the next few weeks.
