My name is Melissa Garff Ballard and Davis County is my home.
I was born here. I grew up here. My husband and I have raised six children here. I love this community and the opportunities here.
While generations before us have worked incredibly hard so that we can enjoy this area, there is still much to do. Together, we can make that happen.
Our state has one of the best economies in the country. This success has come in large part because of our wonderful quality of life, skilled workforce, expanding businesses, and amazing outdoor opportunities.
Utah is also one of the fastest growing states in our nation. Our population expected to double by 2050. As a state legislator, I will work tirelessly to protect Utah values while also helping to plan responsibly for the growth that will be needed in education, infrastructure, air quality and economic development.
As you consider who will represent your values and vision in the Utah House of Representatives, I would be honored to have your vote.
