Her investment background, particularly in the tech sector, has nurtured her appetite for innovation, positioning her as a bridge between modern ideas and practical implementation.

Salt Lake County Council is a part-time role, so it’s crucial to have conservative members who understand how to dig deep on budgets and find and eliminate waste. Salt Lake County residents benefit when there is balance between the Council and the Mayor’s office, which together oversee a $1.9 Billion annual budget. Rachelle’s background and skillset will be an enormous asset to Salt Lake County residents. 

Rachelle Morris’s candidacy is driven by her love for Salt Lake County and her desire to keep this a great place to live for generations to come. Her unique blend of conservative principles and financial expertise will be an asset for the hardworking taxpayers of this community.
