Gets Things Done for Utah
John Curtis cares deeply about Utah’s future.
During his time in Congress, John has delivered for Utahns. With a focus on energy independence, fighting reckless spending in both parties, standing up to communist China’s aggression, protecting farmers and ranchers from over-regulation and defending Utah’s land from the constant pressure of DC – he’s been busy.
Before being elected to Congress, John designed and built shooting ranges around the world for law enforcement training. This real world experience taught him what it’s like to successfully build something from the ground up and the challenges that come along with it.
John might be the only elected official to cut a city’s budget by more than 8% as he did while serving as the mayor of Provo. He understands that running a leaner government is important, and he uses that as an example of how the federal budget should also operate. Even with deep budget cuts – John left Provo with a 94% approval rating and the city was rated as one of the best run cities in the country.
John now wants to take his unique experience and proven track record of getting things done for Utahns to the U.S. Senate. He believes that Utah families deserve to be heard and will continue to work hard every day to make Utah an even better place.
In John’s spare time he enjoys water skiing, exercising, and adding to his extensive sock collection. His favorite thing to do is hang out with his wife of 41 years, Sue, and be Papa to his 17 grandchildren.
