Over the past decade, Utah has experienced incredible growth and prosperity. Some areas of the state, especially those outside the Wasatch Front, have not enjoyed the same degree of success. It’s time for this to change. Spencer will bring an enhanced rural focus to the Governor’s office. This will include a major overhaul of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development to prioritize economic development in rural areas, installing the first “rural chief of staff” in the governor’s office, and promoting the aggressive placement of state jobs in rural areas.
A Cox administration will make sure rural Utah is not forgotten and will represent all 29 counties and 248 cities and towns.
