January 21, 2010, Salt Lake City, Utah –Seeing a genuine need for a better quality of representation from Utah’s leaders in Washington D.C., Christopher Stout (D-UT) will announce his candidacy for U.S. Senator on Saturday, January 23, 2010 at The Bad Ass Coffee Company, 3530 South State Street, Salt Lake City, Utah at 1:00 pm.
“Senator Bennett is holding a seat in the U.S. Senate that belongs to the people, not to Republicans or Democrats,” Stout says. “Utah needs a strong, independent Senator, not another beltway lifer who caters to special interests and plays party politics with important issues. My voice in Washington will speak on behalf of the people of Utah and take the responsibility as this state’s elected representative seriously.”
Stout, a lifelong Utahn, will conduct a grassroots campaign that speaks directly to Utahns and their needs in Washington D.C. With a background in accounting and a profound love for Utah and its people, Stout believes it is time for Utahns to take back their representation from leaders who have over the past decades become too complacent and self-serving. Providing solid leadership in times of uncertainty and solving key issues such as reducing the national debt and freeing America from its energy dependence on foreign oil are a few things Stout believes are important to Utahns, and causes he will take up in Washington.
