With his deep Utah roots, Jim knows how important it is to stand up for what’s right for our state. Following in his father’s footsteps, Jim has taken on the federal government to make sure Utahns are protected from nuclear waste and weapons testing.
Jim believes in the values of faith, family and duty to community. As a sixth-generation Utahn, a husband and a father, Jim is committed to working for what’s right and following his parents’ rule that honesty is the only policy in public service.
Jim believes Utahns deserve a government that works for them and supports the businesses that grow our economy and create jobs. That’s why he fights for business-friendly policies that help the private sector grow, and create good paying jobs with benefits.
From standing up for a balanced budget and cutting wasteful federal spending to fighting against Congressional pay raises—and donating his raise to charity—Jim Matheson is a fiscal conservative.
