HD 24 Candidates at June GACC Meeting

27 May 2018

The GACC has invited the candidates of Utah House District 24 to participate in a forum at our June 6
community meeting. I’m sure you have seen the names on the yard signs as you walk around our neighborhood. We hope you will come out to meet the candidates and have your questions answered regarding economic expansion, education, air-quality, health-care,
and more. In the event you have questions for the candidates, please send them ahead of time to .
We will also distribute question cards at our community meeting on June 6th for you to submit questions too.  The meetings that feature candidates are some of the best attended meetings of the year, so please arrive early. We look forward to seeing you.

Here's a brief look at our candidates' bios:
• Igor Limansky grew up in Utah, and for the last 10 years has worked as a grassroots organizer to ensure that neighborhoods are places where diversity is celebrated and where every voice counts. Igor attended the University of Utah and studied Poetry and Literature. In 2008 he graduated and started working on the Obama Campaign as a Field Organizer and in 2012 became the Utah State Director for President Obama’s reelection campaign
.• Jacquelyn Orton says "I am ready to work for YOU! House District 24 has been my home for almost two decades. I’ve invested almost 10,000 hours in our local public schools from which my sons, Will and Wes, graduated. I continue to fight for our children, LGBTQ+ youth, women, working families, seniors and the marginalized in our community — locally and nationally."
• Darin Mann is an environmental activist, currently working for an urban farming group with a focus on promoting food justice, The Green Urban Lunchbox. He also works advocating on the hill to fight air pollution with the Native lead grassroots activist group, the SLC Air Protectors as Action Director. Darin is first and foremost an advocate for people and planet! 
Scott Rosenbush Scott and his wife Cindy have lived in the Avenues for several years with their two cocker spaniels Max and Van Gogh. Originally from New Jersey, Scott was an elected offi cial for 19 years on the Morris Township Committee, including five years as Mayor. Scott and Cindy love Utah’s outdoors, hiking, biking, skiing, and giving the dogs a good walk. They love our neighborhoods and the wonderful variety of people who live in it, our local businesses and unique character. Salt Lake City has an amazing quality of life which is why Scott and Cindy moved here. Scott continues service as a member of the Salt Lake City Rotary Club.
• Jen Dailey-Provost is the experienced candidate with nearly a decade of relevant, in-depth experience working with legislators, advocates and staff on Utah’s Capitol Hill. She enjoys the opportunity to be the voice to represent the incredible communities of HD24, and humbled by the district’s support of progressive women. Jen’s passion extends from years of fighting for access to healthcare, the opioid crisis, aff ordable housing, reproductive rights, equal rights for LGBTQIA+, minorities and women, homelessness, air quality and the environment.

(All the above are Democrats, with the exception of Scott Rosenbush, who is a Republican. The Democrats face a primary on June 26, from which one will emerge to face Mr. Rosenbush in the November 6 election.)
