As the Unaffiliated candidate for the Utah House of Representatives in District 73, I hope to earn your vote on November 6, 2018. Please take some time on the website to learn about me, my candidacy, my campaign platform and why I am the most qualified candidate to represent you in the Utah State Legislature.
As my campaign grows through 2018 I look forward to meeting you and listening to your needs, your interests and your concerns. My platform and legislative goals will grow based on what I learn from you and your community through my visits to every town in District 73 before the election.
Meet The Candidate
I’m Marsha Holland and I live in the town of Tropic in Garfield County. I hold a bachelor degree in History (1999). After receiving my degree my husband, John, myself and our two sons, Aaron and Nathan, settled in Garfield County where we built the Cannonville KOA campground which we owned and operated until 2014. In 2014 we opened Bryce Valley Tours, guiding visitors on the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and in Bryce Canyon National Park.
Additionally, I have led the Southern Utah Oral History Project since 2002. The Project is dedicated to preserving the voices of longtime residents of the region. In 2012 I was awarded Utah Division of History’s Outstanding Contributions in History.
I am a past Chairperson and current board member on the Garfield Memorial Healthcare Foundation. I work part-time as a substitute teacher in the Bryce Valley Schools. I am a founding member of the Bryce Community Foundation, a local non-profit organization dedicated to funding projects that promote our heritage, healthy lifestyles and local tourism.
I stand for honesty, integrity and accountability in government. I am an advocate for rural education, public safety, healthcare access and the diversification of our rural economies, which I believe provide a solid foundation for the success of our southern Utah communities. I look forward to serving all citizens in the Utah House of Representatives, and believe the needs of District 73 are best served when “People Come First.”
“I am an advocate for rural education and quality healthcare which I believe provide a solid foundation for the success of our southern Utah communities.”
Marsha Holland | Canidate for utah state House of representatives District 73
I decided to run for Utah House of Representatives District 73 because I care about our communities and the people who live here. I believe I am better suited to represent the constituents in House District 73 because I have been an advocate for education, healthcare and small businesses in District 73 for 20 years. I understand many of the issues facing our rural communities and believe the needs of District 73 are best served when “People Come First.”
I am running as an Unaffiliated candidate for House District 73 because today the established political parties are simply not working for most people. Running Unaffiliated is an honorable place to build and implement a platform for all people that includes honesty, integrity and accountability which I believe should be preeminent for all elected officials.
I trust the spirit, enthusiasm, and common sense of my supporters and volunteers to help me get my campaign message to all the people in District 73.
Utah House District 73 encompasses all or portions of seven Utah counties: Kane, Garfield, Wayne, San Juan, and portions of Piute, Beaver, and Sevier. It’s a HUGE area --- the largest geographical district in the State of Utah and the 3rd largest in the United States! I am campaigning throughout the region and talking to as many people in the district as I can between now and November 6.
