I grew up in Provo and am the oldest of 10 children. My parents, Glen and Michelle Roberts, raised me to be a responsible individual, love learning, work hard, set and accomplish goals, and have a profound respect for my Family, my Freedom and my God.
I was fortunate to marry my high school sweetheart. I\’m not sure how she did it but she was able to fend off would be suiters for two years while I served a mission for the LDS Church in Mendoza Argentina. We now have 4 very energetic children.
I attended BYU where I earned a bachelors degree in Civil Engineering and played for 2.5 years on the BYU basketball team before I had to stop due to complications with my knees.
I have my Real Estate license and have worked as a consultant for builders and developers, mainly to oversee and manage projects through the municipal approval process to obtain building permits and land development approvals. I currently work as the President of Operations for Platinum Payment Systems in Spanish Fork Utah, an electronic payments solutions provider.
At any given time I have about 4 different books on my night stand. In the evening or on weekends you might find me playing basketball, volleyball, softball, riding horses, chasing cows, hunting, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, shooting guns, wrestling and playing with my kids, tinkering on the computer, working in my garden, checking my beehives, hanging out with my family, playing the ukulele, piano, or on a date with my wife.
I have a passion for learning and a habit of working at something until I get it right. I love liberty and the ability it gives me to be creative, take risks, choose who I want to be and how I want to conduct my life.
The understanding of the proper role of government has been distorted and more importantly, our government leaders no longer understand their proper role. I believe the proper role of government is to secure our rights to our life, our liberty, and our property and will do all I can to make sure those rights are not infringed upon and to secure them for future generations.
“Frequent recurrence to fundamental principles is essential to the security of individual rights and the perpetuity of free government.”
