I’m a former Utah State Legislator and as such will be able to be immediately effective for you. I served for two terms from 2015-2018 in District 44 (Murray, Midvale and Sandy). I moved to West Jordan two years ago. At the urging of key individuals in the public education community, I have decided to throw my hat into the ring for this position. My passion is public education. While I’m not an educator, I have served as a School Board member in the Murray District for two terms. When I was in the legislature previously, I was an active member of the Education committees, including the Appropriations committee. I’m currently serving as a volunteer on the Jordan Education Foundation (JEF) Board. I’m the chair of the JEF STEM Advisory Committee. Our kids’ teachers and staff are critical components of a thriving society. Our children are our most valuable assets. I’m also passionate about local control. Local city councils and school board are the closest to the issues and should be allowed to make decisions regarding these issues. The legislature should be careful about overreaching. I’m the husband of Kathie Clegg Cutler (47 years), the father of 4 daughters, the grandfather of 16 and a soon-to-be great-grandfather of 1. Your opinion matters to me. I look forward to talking to you before the November 15th election. Please call or email me. I ask for you vote.
Ken Ivory, JD, served for nine years in the Utah House of Representatives, resigning in August of 2019 to work full-time on the PILT (Payment In Lieu of Taxes) issue to secure increased federal funding for Utah schools and other government needs. Ken championed a variety of legislation passed with bipartisan majorities, including (by way of example): the elimination of the statute of limitations for sexual abuse of children; tele-health, tele-mental health and tele-government legislation to increase efficiency and convenience and decrease cost of these services; trauma informed criminal justice legislation to protect the rights of crime victims; and the unanimously co-sponsored property tax replacement effort to increase the PILT payments from the federal government. He maintains a general business, estate planning and strategic communications law practice. Ken has also been an adjunct professor at Utah Valley University, where he taught American Federalism. Ken continues to chair the National Center to Restore the Balance of Government for the American Legislative Exchange Council, an organization that honored him as the national state legislator of the year in 2014. With a national debt now approaching $29 Trillion (increasing at the rate of more than $2 Trillion a year), Ken is also active nationally in the bipartisan effort to impose fiscal responsibility restraints on the federal government, serving as moderator and MC of the Fiscal Responsibility Academy in Salt Lake in July of 2021, as well as the upcoming Fiscal Responsibility Academy 2.0 to be held in San Diego in December of 2021. He is the author of “Where’s the Line? How States Protect the Constitution.” https://3greatrights.com/wherestheline.html Ken and his wife, Becky, are the parents of four children, and grandparents of three adorable grandchildren.
