Richard D. Watson for State Senate District 23

A resident of Bountiful for more than 20 years, Richard’s community involvement has given him the experience of working with incredible people from the South Davis area. As a three-time community council member and a two-time PTA board member, Richard understands the problems in education. In addition, he also enjoys coaching youth sports as a coach in Jr. Jazz and Cal Ripkin baseball.

In addition, Richard has been chairman of the Davis County Democratic Party for the last six years and has been a political columnist for The Clipper for almost three years.

As Chair of local Democrats, Richard has encouraged everyone to be involved in the Party and to donate, at least once a month, to the local food banks. (Over the past few years, the Bountiful Food Pantry has received over 2,000 lbs of food.)

Richard is married to Carol Watson, a high school teacher, and they have two sons, Andy and Bret.

Richard’s main goals for serving the people of South Davis County are:
  • Education: We need a heartfelt and sincere voice for teachers and parents, someone that cares. Too often we hear promises that fall short. We need results rather than chatter.
  • Open Government: Too much secrecy in our government has led our elected leaders to abuse the voters, our taxes and our trust. The recipe for change is to elect a caring and a straightforward voice of the people, to stir up the “soup” in the “government pot”. Legislators have to be reminded that they are employed by the people.
  • Taxes: Too many promises are made about taxes and little has been done to relieve the tax burden of average, working (and retired) middle-class residents in Davis County. Rather than focus on tax cuts for a few, we should strongly consider easing the tax burden on families who are struggling to make ends meet.
