Christina Boggess, Utah Senate 16


As an elected official, Christina has offered clear and consistent communication about upcoming events and transparency issues through social media — furthermore, she articulates issues through frequent emails to constituents.  She has hosted and attended multiple town halls and attends events throughout the valley for the purposes of accountability, transparency and understanding. 

Over the past few years, the Utah State Board of Education and the Utah State legislature have repeatedly voted to cede control of the Utah education system and many other aspects of governement to unconstitutional authority and refused to be compliant with Utah Law.  

As an example: The Federal Reserve is NOT a part of the U.S. Governement. It is a private organization utilized by the government to fullfil a role; however it is autonomous in its operations and therefore, has no accountability.  More than a few parts of Utah’s government are run by what are referred to as Public-Private Partnerships (PPP/3Ps).

Christina’s goal is to work with others to rein in those Constitutional concessions and build around the design set forth in Utah’s Constitution and constitutional legislative infrastructure. 

Regardless, it can be expected that Christina would not vote for any piece of legislation that cedes constitutional authority or elected accountability. 

A wise woman once said, “Without privacy, there is no freedom.”  

Christina has boldly and consistently advocated against and opposed frivolous data-sharing agreements that violate the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.  Our state should clearly and consistently be informed consent and OPT-IN.

One such example was the movement of HB455, which would have prohibited the MANDATORY disclosure of information to a third party.  The same information, if under investigation by Law Enforcement, would have required a warrant; however subsidiary government agencies are requiring disclosure as a condition of employment.   

There are many examples to share. Have conversations with Christina about data. 

When one thinks of elections and government in general, it should be of, by and for the people.  

Elections should be as close to the people as possible and NOT centralized. This allows for checks–balances, and prevents fraud. 

The Clerk is an elected position.  It doesn’t matter who holds that office; they should not be allowed to subsidize their elections through their offices.  Finally, The LG should not be allowed to oversee or appoint his/her own overseer in an election in which he/she is involved, contributed to or publicly taken a position. 

Utah has an abundance of mineral wealth. As our nation’s energy demands increase, Utah should be poised to provide solutions. Utah is already a leader in oil, gas, coal, and uranium. The only thing preventing us from having a much more significant impact is the federal administrative state.  

It is best to have a diversified energy portfolio of assets. All energy should be affordable and reliable to meet the needs of Utah’s growing population and economy.

Often one hears the words “evidence-based,” and it isn’t at all what you think it is.   In fact, in 53G-8-211, the definition includes language asserting that “evidence-based” can be determined by an agency’s bureaucrats or a vote.   Any sound researcher or scientist knows this is absurd on its face.  Truth is not determined by consensus.  

As your next Senator, Christina will move to codify language that plainly defines “evidence-based” in a sound manner and move to ensure solutions and actions the government takes are anchored in the same. 

Faithful watchers of policy-making processes know very well how often bad policy is passed based upon emotional pleas from a few individuals.  

We shouldn’t legislate to the anomaly among us; we should legislate to the cross-section while providing for the anomaly. 

Often, emotional reactions are quick and uninformed–Christina approaches policymaking through a calm, analytical lens and will adhere to constitutional principles in policymaking.

Parents are the PRIMARY stakeholder in the education of their children. It is unfortunate to see they are being sidelined in the educational processes and conversations.  Utah can take the lead by securing parental rights, reducing the influence of outside interests, returning to healthier ways of children learning, and upholding bright-line boundaries between state and home to show the world that Utah puts its FAMILIES FIRST.  

The most local form of local control is the family and it is time we get back to that. 

Our great state has lost massive amounts of farmland to High-Density Housing, regulations, and other factors; however, the main focus of our leaders should be food independence.  As a landlocked state, we should be cognizant of where ports are located and move to be independent of outside influences to feed and nourish our state. 

Bodily autonomy is essential for liberty.  Utah should champion liberty and become an INFORMED consent state in all areas.   

Christina will oppose any government action or laws that coerce Americans to receive unwanted medical products or procedures. 

Utahns should avoid centralization and digital governance regarding health information in order to preserve freedom and free movement within our society. 

The U.S. Constitution is the negotiated middle.  Some people wonder how politicians become corrupt; it is simple–they choose self over service and stray from constitutional principles.  

In doing so, they trade freedom for convenience or purported “safety.”   

When a student of history sees a repeat, it is time to gain an eagle-eye perspective and boldly oppose and work to repeal policies, projects and “pilots” that mirror Mao’s China, the Bolshevik revolution, the redlining in America’s past and Nazi Germany, among others.. 

Elected representatives too often see themselves as the builders and managers of society instead of the public servants that they should be. It seems governments are too quick to take control as soon as they can make the slightest justification for it, however specious that justification may be. 

As your representative, Christina will 

  • prioritize individual liberties over increasing state control
  • prioritize local board control over upper level usurpation
  • individual rights over corporate rights.

Utah has an abundance of mineral wealth. As our nation’s energy demands increase, Utah should be poised to provide solutions. Utah is already a leader in oil, gas, coal, and uranium. The only thing preventing us from having a much more significant impact is the federal administrative state.  

It is best to have a diversified energy portfolio of assets. All energy should be affordable and reliable to meet the needs of Utah’s growing population and economy.

As an elected official, Christina is often quoted as saying, “I do not represent this body to the people, I represent the people to this body.”  Boggess is also clear that while her work results in interfacing with many parties, she does NOT represent them.  

Our legislative body is too caught up in representing:

  • corporate interests (stakeholders)
  • colleagues (not constituents)
  • lobbyists
  • many others.

Of Christina’s many focuses in the Senate, the top one will be SECURING THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE.

Public office is too easily abused for personal gain or special interest agendas  — the allegiance to which can be noticed on one’s financial disclosures.  

Public money is the property of the people and should only be used for the benefit of the general citizenry, not specific market sectors or special interests.

The same applies to educational infrastructure.  

My allegiance is to the inalienable rights of the people of Utah and to no other outside interest or entity .

Have you ever been to public comment at a public meeting?  Often it is flooded with representatives of those who stand to gain financially from the passage of certain policies. On the vast majority of occasions, our legislators hear from more corporations than the public.  This occurs for manifold reasons:

  • lack of transparency,
  • lack of PURPOSEFUL public notice.

Public comment should be reserved for the public, not associations, organizations, lobbyists or corporations.

Furthermore, the public needs to be informed about who is behind some of the bills. Transparency should be paramount, and conflicts of interest should be disclosed at every turn, and all legislators should avoid the appearance of impropriety. 

Is there another state in the nation that is “majority managed” by the federal government?  Wouldn’t that make us a colony and not an independent state?

The Utah landscape has shaped who we are as a people. It influences who wants to live here and who visits our state for a getaway or two.  

Our elected officials need to LEAD and stand against federal overreach and control of our public lands. 

Christina’s goal is not to legislate MORE but to do LESS and repeal unnecessary and frivolous code that strangles freedom and overregulates the people.
