Why Scott Howell?
In the public and private sector, Scott  has shown that relationships are the way to end the gridlock and get things accomplished. Like most of us, he's grown tired of the political-standoff in Washington, and knows that as a nation, we deserve more. As a state senator, Scott consistently reached across the aisle, and as our voice in Washington, that's what he'll do. Today's 'leadership' is too polarized to make the type of change we need. It's time to put aside partisan politics and focus on the issues because we define Utah, we end the gridlock and we need Scott Howell.
end the gridlock

A graduate of Skyline High and the University of Utah, Scott also attended Dixie College on a scholarship.

In the private sector, Scott spent 34 years with IBM Corporation ­managing world-wide teams of employees.

Scott was elected to the Utah Senate in 1990 with 60% of the vote. He served eight of the ten years as the Senate Minority Leader.

Scott served on many boards and committees, including the Salt Lake 0lympic 0rganizing Committee and lntermountain Healthcare.

Scott and his wife Linda are parents, grandparents and active members of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Scott on the Issues

Creating new job opportunities in Utah's small communities will make it possible for our kids and grandkids to make a living here at home. Scott believes that Utah's businesses must be given tools that will allow them to compete on a level playing field against out-of-state corporations.


Essential government services must be made more efficient. Scott believes that each and every department in the federal government should be analyzed and evaluated to discover where technology could help reduce costs and improve outcomes that better serve citizens.

Our children must be trained to compete in a global economy. Scott is committed to bringing cutting-edge technology to the classroom, recruiting the highest quality teachers, and ensuring that local school districts are empowered to make decisions for their schools and classrooms. To foster a love of learning, we must put as many of our education dollars into the classroom as possible.

America needs a healthy and robust workfarce. We must ensure that quality college education is available and affordable to all who wish to pursue it. Scott will work to keep tuition costs down and supports vital financial aid services such as Pell Grants and low-cost student loans.

Scott will work far continued tax relief for middle class Utahns –­ cutting taxes in a responsible way to help rebuild the economy and put more people back to work. He advocates for a simpler, fairer tax code, and one that eliminates tax loopholes so everyone in America is paying their fair share.

Health care services in America are far too expensive, and too many families are financially ruined because of illness or tragedy. Scott supports elements of the Affordable Care Act that eliminate pre­existing conditions from insurance coverage, and the provision which allows parents to keep their children on their insurance plans longer. As we work for solutions to make health care more affordable, new legislation must be done in a bipartisan, collaborative way.

Congress must solve the problem of immigration, so that individuals who wish to seek out the American dream can do so safely and legally. Scott supports common-sense measures such as the Dream Act that would provide a path to citizenship for those who are play­ing by the rules and working hard. The Utah Compact includes other common-sense principles for immigration reform, and these ideas should be considered at a national level.

As a native of Utah, Scott and his family have enjoyed the beauty and bounties of our state's diverse landscape. He wants to ensure future generations can enjoy it too. Tapping into the insight and input on a state level, while utilizing innovation and technology throughout the country, we can preserve our landscape and create solutions for safe and responsible energy.
