One of the great people I have met while serving as vice chair is Trisha Beck. We at the Party could think of no better candidate for distict 9 than Trisha. While Trisha and I sat in Wayne's office she told me the story of the birth of her last child. Her doctors had told Trisha that the birth of this child could possibly take her life. However, Trisha decided to go forward with the birth putting her unborn baby's life above her own.
She has gone through some diffacult campaigns; one in which two men in dark suits went door to door spreading untruths about her morals and values, and thus bearing false witness for political gain. I know how these lies can affect a person, but Trisha, after consulting with her Bishop and Stake President decided that the true causes are worth the fight, and she decided to once again make the attempt to serve her neighbors in Sandy, Utah.
I love Trisa, and I love what she stands for, but most of all I admire and love her courage.
