Why Voting Matters

The St. George area has consistently ranked as one of the fastest-growing areas in the nation according to U.S. Census data. Now, more than ever, we need elected officials who understand that the people who are being priced out of our housing market are not tech workers or move-ins from California, they are our first responders, educators, and caregivers. They are people that our community can’t afford to lose, and they can’t afford to live here.

How City Leaders Affect Lives

  1. Most of the issues that affect your day-to-day life are decided at the local level. With that in mind, you want someone in office who you believe will make decisions best suited to the needs of the people in your area.
  2.  You can influence the policy decision you’re most passionate about! Like roads, infrastructure, zoning & development. You have a say… you might as well use it.
  3. Local elections are decided on the margins, which is how change happens – rights are granted and rights are taken away. Democracy does not work if we don’t participate, and it creates a disconnect between us and those that create policy & law.

Affordability by the Numbers

Data used from the Washington County Board of REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service

Median cost of a home for sale in Washington County is $479,000, which means a household would have to make $97,000 to afford it.

Make Your Voice Heard

Our rapid growth has resulted in major housing affordability challenges. We need our local officials to prioritize legislation that removes artificial barriers to housing. As a private citizen, the best way to ensure that happens is to get involved and vote for people who recognize that our growth problems won’t just go away and that our community desperately needs a realistic solution.
