Dear Fellow Utahns,

I am proud and honored to seek the office of Governor of the State of Utah. I am running because the people of our state stand at a crossroads. We can continue to tread water and settle for less than the best, or we can elect officials with the experience and strength of character necessary to ensure that Utah leads, not just competes in, the global economy of tomorrow.

My running mate Vince Rampton and I are ready to move Utah forward, and to make our state a global leader. With decisive leadership, proactive policy and experience that works for Utah, we can meet the challenges that confront us today, and win the future for our children.

Stronger Leadership for Utah


Pete Cooke for Utah's Future

Dear Fellow Utahn,

I am running for Governor because my unique skill set and life experiences - Major General in the U.S. Army Reserve, successful business entrepreneur, Utah Director of Economic Development – equip me with the leadership ability Utah needs now.

I know from experience that we cannot be compla­cent about jobs or our state's economic development. I will move aggressively to address the deficits in our education system -- the backbone of Utah's economic growth.

I am built to serve. I have dedicated all my adult life to serving our nation and our community through four decades in the military and three decades pioneering public/private partnerships that develop housing affordable to young families and seniors. I have led the fight for veterans' reintegration and I am an active member of my church. Most importantly, I am a husband and father of five.

As your Governor, I will apply the most important lesson I learned both as the commander of 10,000 troops across seven states and as the creator of numerous businesses and nonprofit organizations: Always put the good of the unit first. As your Governor, I will always put the best interests of Utah first.

Pete Cooke
