A New Year.

As a new year begins, we should all reflect on our past accomplishments, and recommit to the goals and aspirations as we enter 2013. We have seen remarkable changes over this past year and we all should envision those things to come. Take a moment to think of all the work we dedicated ourselves to. The signs on the roadways, the phone calls and newspaper ads. The door knocking, and wearing the soles off our shoes as we walked into to the neighborhoods. We take that moment and then wink as we anticipate the challenges ahead for our community, our state and our nation. National challenges relating to our growth and economy are right in front of us. I am however, confident that our President will continue to work on our behalf as he engages a congress who needs to move us into the future, as opposed to ensuring the President simply not get things done! President Obama will continue to reach out to chart a course that will bring our country into the future. Our state has a responsibility to ensure the safety of its citizens as we face environmental imperatives. We each have a right to live in a healthy state free from exploitation of our land, capacity to breathe clean air and monitor the food supply to be contamination free. Then lastly, Tooele County as the elected leaders who promised no new taxes should be held accountable to that pledge. That the citizens of 2013 are not held hostage to the poor budget planning of prior years. I acknowledge that the term used in 2012 by...

Tom Nedreberg – Utah House 68

I’m running for House District 68 because I believe in the importance of balance in our state government. We must restore open, ethical, and fair discussions that truly serve the interests of the people of Utah. I feel the people of Utah care deeply about their families, livelihoods, and communities. Too often citizens are forgotten in the one party political system we have in our state. This must change. As your representative, I will stand up for the values that matter to us all. A little about myself: I’ve lived in Utah for over 30 years. I was educated at Ohio State University BS in Elementary Education, New Mexico State University MA in Curriculum and Instruction, and Brigham Young University MEd in Educational Leadership. I’ve been a teacher, principal, and district administrator for the past 28 years in the Tintic School District in Eureka, Utah. I serve on the Eureka City Council and am currently the Vice President of the Utah Education Association. As your representative I will advocate for the middle class values we all share. I will vote for a fair and equitable tax system. I will seek to balance the development of our natural resources keeping in mind the preservation of our natural beauty and working for a way to both protect and sustain those resources for future generations. Finally I feel my most important responsibility will be to develop, maintain and invest in a world-class educational system from pre-school through graduate school. Advocating for a Quality Public Education System Preserving Utah’s Rural Water Rights and Unique Natural Resources Supporting Local Control for Local Concerns Utah...
