"I enjoyed working with Representative Mark Wheatley (center) on legislation to help ensure living kidney and liver donor's have access to long term care and life insurance. This will help people like Bruce who had to wait 4.5 years to get his transplant."

EXPERIENCE

27 years in the non-profit field, helping save and improve lives in both Utah and Idaho by  greatly increasing organ donation registrations.

Propelled Utah and Idaho into the top five donor registries in the country, thanks to forming partnerships with many public entities, businesses, legislators, and media outlets. This was accomplished this on a non-profit budget and small staff.

Conceptualized  the on-line Yes Utah Donor Registry, www.yesutah.org, which now has 82% of the population of Utah signed up to be organ and tissue donors. 

Have lobbied for, and passed, numerous bills in both the Utah and Idaho Legislatures to help further the cause of organ, eye and tissue donation, demonstrating the ability to “work across the aisle."  Alex has solid knowledge of the legislative process to help get Weber County more resources from the State Legislature.

Taught Political Science course at Salt Lake Community College as an adjunct professor for ten years.

"My wife Madeline and I have enjoyed our 20+ years living in Ogden and experiencing all this wonderful area has to offer. I look forward to serving all of Weber County as the next Weber County Commissioner."

"I have enjoyed working with Idaho Republican Senator Lee Heider for a number of years on legislation to save more lives through donation. I can work across the aisle to help the citizens of Weber County as well."
