Utahns are fortunate to live in a beautiful state. Mia loves being outside and in the mountains, where she can appreciate Utah’s landscapes. As a runner, Mia appreciates the desire to recreate on these lands and the desire to preserve them for future generations.
Mia favors a balanced, multi-use approach to land management. Some land should be available for recreation, fishing, hunting, and grazing. Other land should be protected differently. Ultimately, she believes land management policy is best crafted when all stakeholders express their positions. That is why Mia has supported locally driven approaches, such as efforts to preserve land in Millcreek Canyon and lands along the Wasatch Mountain Range.
Utahns are more than capable of coming together to find smart solutions to land and resource issues. And, in the majority of cases, they are best equipped to manage the land. Most elected officials and bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. have never visited Utah. Mia pledges to continue bringing Utah’s plans and ideas to them.
