The Church Needs a Two Party System

“I also support what has been said by the Brethren–that it is in the interest of the Church to have a two-party system and not to have one party that is exclusively LDS and the other party exclusively non-LDS. Both locally and nationally, the interests of the Church and its members are served when we have two good men or women running on each ticket, and then no matter who is elected, we win.” (James E. Bell, In The Strength of the Lord: The Life and Teachings of James E. Faust, Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1999, p. 86)

I am passionate about politics. What I find the most interesting is the theater, strategy, and positioning. My writing revolves around political process and impacts of policy decisions. I completed my undergrad at Arizona State and MBA at University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, MN. I have worked in the consumer products industry for the last 12 years for Gillette, P&G, and Henkel. I am a husband of twelve years and father to four daughters (11,9,5,4).

    President Hinckley said it best when he told Scott Howell (a candidate for US Senate) “tell everyone you know we are not a Republican church. It does us no good to align with one political party. We need people in both parties to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
