Howard is a political outsider and a successful businessman who is running for the Republican nomination for Utah’s First Congressional district.
Howard started his professional career as a public school teacher before working his way up the ladder at a small transportation company that he eventually bought and transformed into a regional carrier – creating hundreds of high paying jobs. After selling his company, he moved to Utah full-time, where he has lived for over 20 years.
Howard has served on several executive boards in both the public policy and private-sector business industries. He understands firsthand how unnecessary government regulation stifles business production and hurts job growth.
Howard lives in Summit County with his wife Barbara, where they enjoy the many recreational activities our beautiful state has to offer.
