"I will focus on policies that encourage economic development without sacrificing the rural lifestyle that we strongly value. I will also focus on education policy that gives local school boards as much control as possible in decisions that affect their students." - Kera Birkeland
Stand up for individual liberties
Support individual, property, and state rights
Defender of the 2nd amendment and constitutional carry
Kera can bring more integrity and accountability to our state legislature. Her experience as a small business owner and a foster parent have given her valuable insight into the importance of conservative policies at the state level. She knows firsthand how unnecessary regulations can strangle fledgling small businesses, and has experienced how bureaucracy and budgeting decisions impact the success of state programs (such as the foster care system). Kera is a wife and mother of six. Her skills as a basketball referee will probably be the most crucial for success in the Utah State House!
"Kera Birkeland is, without a doubt, what House District 53 needs at this critical time. Politics is the art of balancing defending key principles while promoting effective compromise. Kera has mastered this art. She brings people from all sides of the party together to help them achieve their goals. Whatever the challenge, Kera has the drive to conquer it in service of the people she represents. Kera stands for the principles freedom and fiscal conservatism and strengthening our state through thoughtful policy. She has my stamp of approval."
