As your representative for House District 39, I am grateful and honored for the opportunity to serve you. Having lived in our area for 31 years, I share your concerns and goals for our community. I own and operate a small business in Taylorsville. With my wife, Vicki, we reared two wonderful children and educated them in local schools.

Our community and families continue to face many important issues such as:

• Education – I worked to pass historic funding increases for teacher salaries and classroom size reduction. I will continue to support our educators and children at the Capitol.
• Transportation – Our community must be the highest priority for future road improvements. I will continue to fight for the enhancement of local East-West/North-South corridors—with no toll roads.
• Health Care – Because the current system is costly and confusing, I sponsored legislation to expand insurance to children, promote wellness programs and provide less expensive benefit packages for small businesses. I will remain tenacious in advancing needed reforms.

Independents, Republicans, Democrats, business organizations, education groups and others publicly endorse my efforts on Capitol Hill. Together, our community has accomplished much, but our work is not complete. I need your vote on Nov. 4th to continue our work.

Rep. Jim Dunnigan
