I’m a small business owner in Tooele County with a young family. We work hard to pay our bills, student loans and home mortgage. Like you, I believe in common sense government that represents the people.

I look forward to meeting you and earning your vote on November 8th.


A New Voice for Tooele County

I’m running for the Utah House of Representatives because I’m dedicated to my community, my neighbors, my family and my friends. We need well thought-out, balanced solutions to issues that concern us all–air quality, education and the economic growth of Tooele County.

We need a new voice representing Tooele County and that voice is YOURS!  

Join me, and together we will ensure that ALL of our voices are heard.

About Rick

I grew up in Ogden and attended the University of Utah where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communication. I met my wife, Amy, while I was the Marketing/Promotions Director for KENZ-FM.

We fell in love with the Tooele Valley in 2000, knowing this is where we wanted to raise our family. Shortly after moving to Tooele, I was employed by the Salt Lake Organizing Committee as the Retail Services Coordinator for the 2002 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Villages. While preparing for the Olympics, our son Stone was born.

I’m now a small business owner, I’ve owned 435 Design, a local website/print/graphic design firm since 2008. I’m passionate about giving back to my community, I’ve happily volunteered for the North Tooele Fire District, Different=Amazing, and the Weber Morgan Childrens’ Justice Center, among others. I’ve served on the board of the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation for 5 years and I’m currently a trustee on the board of the Plan-B Theatre Company.

I care about our community and believe that we need to end the political rhetoric and work together to find common sense solutions in regards to education, air quality, health care, immigration and issues that concern every single Utahn.

From the campaign trail


Education is so important for our youth and for the long-term health of our community.  Our children are our future leaders, doctors and researchers.  Instead of spending $51 million dollars on a port in California for coal, a foul product that does nothing but pollute our air, let’s invest those monies into our education system and our children.

Every child deserves a free, high-quality education. An education that can prepare them for the future.

We need to pursue other funding sources in Utah and stop coming in dead last in per-pupil funding in the nation.

Let’s start preparing students today for the job market. Whether learning a trade or going to medical school, kids of all backgrounds need access to affordable education.

We also need to attract more teachers with creative ideas and passion.

Every year, the pollution from the Wasatch Front creeps further around the Oquirrh Mountains. We need to pass common sense pollution laws and lead the way for clean energy solutions.

Did you know Tooele County has, on average, 227 sunny days each year?   We should be harnessing that clean solar power. Corporations and consumers investigating clean energies are bringing about the change that will benefit all of us.

Forget about the politics, we need expanded Medicaid for Utahns that are working hard to make ends meet, but still earn too much to qualify for aid.

Almost 70,000 of our friends and neighbors are facing unspeakable choices every single day.

As Americans, we’ve already paid into Medicaid, there’s no reason to deny someone proper medical care.

We need balance in our state legislature, I can help bring about that balance.

A mid-valley highway will certainly attract more industry to Tooele County, but we also need to address the I-80 bottleneck into Salt Lake City.  Our only alternate route can’t be through Utah County.  An extension onto Highway 201 would be a great start, but it will years of planning and construction.  We need to fight for it right now.

In recent years, we’ve also seen a decline in federal PILT (Payment in Lieu of Taxes) coming into our county and our state.  As Congress continues to cut back on this program, we must work as a state legislature and with our representatives in Washington to ensure that the federal government recognizes how important those funds are to our county, our state and our part of the country.

I also care about the issues that you’re concerned with.  Email me at rick@rickpollock.com and let’s talk about what’s important to you.
