HOLLY RICHARDSON ENTERS UTAH SENATE RACE
Pleasant Grove, UT – Today, Republican Holly Richardson formally announced
her candidacy for the open seat in Senate District 14. Current Senator Al
Jackson will not be seeking re-election.
“Over the course of this campaign, we will have many opportunities to talk
about policy, but today, I want to share the type of leader I believe we
need,” said Richardson. “We need leaders who listen, not lecture. We need
leaders who look for solutions, not just the next soundbite. We need
leaders who understand that diversity and differences make for a richer,
more robust conversation and are to be welcomed at the table. I have a
track record of doing just that and would be honored to represent the many
voices of Senate District 14 on Utah’s Capitol Hill.”
“Holly Richardson is a woman of integrity. She has gained unparalleled
experience through a wide range of public service, resulting in a deep
reservoir of knowledge,” said Senator Deidre Henderson. “Residents of
Senate District 14 will be well served by her fearless leadership,
commitment to conservative principles, and thoughtful approach to issues.

former member of the Utah House of Representatives. Affectionately known
as “Holly on the Hill,” she writes the award-winning political blog by the
same name. She is a common-sense conservative who has been active in Utah
politics for over 15 years. Richardson is a popular speaker and is
respected as an effective leader both on and off the Hill.
