In a press release, David Lifferth announced his candidacy for Utah State Senate District 13. Lifferth has represented Utah House District 2 since 2013.
Senate District 13, which includes Lehi, parts of Bluffdale, Herriman, American Fork, Highland, as well as Saratoga Springs, Eagle Mountain, Cedar Fort and Fairfield, is currently represented by Mark Madsen, who will retire at the end of this year. Jake Anderegg has also announced he will run for the seat.
“There is a general sentiment nationwide that people are sick and tired of politics as usual,” said Lifferth. “I share that disgust with the cozy financial relationship between self-serving politicians and special interest groups. I have and will continue to to represent the voters and not special interest groups.”
Prior to serving in the Utah State Legislature, Lifferth was Mayor of Eagle Mountain and on the City Council of Eagle Mountain from 2006 to 2010.
Rep. Mike McKell of Spanish Fork said about Lifferth: “I have been very impressed with Rep. Lifferth in the State House of Representatives. He is different than other legislators. He stands out because of the way that he is involved with the people that he was elected to represent. When he speaks, he speaks for and about the people that he represents. I can tell that he is serving them rather than pursuing his own interests or a political career. I hope that the people in his district can see how well Rep. Lifferth has represented them in the state legislature.”
