“Southern Utah, and our future and quality of life, depends on strong leadership. That why we must support Evan Vickers for Utah Senate. We have to have leadership that understands how conservative qualities and principles help foster successful business; we have to have someone who has the time and ability to work extremely hard for our area at the state Legislature. I know Evan personally and he doesn’t just ‘talk the talk,’ he ‘walks the walk’ with the values and ideals that we want in an elected leader. Evan Vickers has put southern Utah first, and we need his strong leadership and principles. I am supporting Evan Vickers and I ask that you do too.” -Dale Ipson
