Representative Angela Romero
Rep. Angela Romero was first elected to the Utah State Legislature in 2012 and was re-elected in 2020. Representing House District 26, Angela advocates for issues that matter to working families in the district. In 2022, Angela will be running for re-election for House District 25, new legislative district number and boundaries, to continue serving Utah’s most diverse district and representing our common values.
Angela Fights for Survivors of Sexual Assault
Angela has taken a serious interest in combating crimes that affect women, children and families. Most notably, she passed House Bill 200, which requires: the testing of all rape kits in Utah; sexual assault survivors be provided with the ability to anonymously track the status of their rape kit; and that law enforcement officers assigned to investigate cases of sexual assault, child sexual abuse and domestic violence receive trauma-informed training. In 2020, Utah became 1 of 8 states to eliminate its rape kit backlog.
Angela Works for Clean Air
Angela knows clean air is a major concern for Utah families. Among many efforts to improve air quality across the Wasatch Front, she secured $100,000 in ongoing funding for the TRAX Monitoring Air Quality project. This project gathers the air quality data necessary to understand the conditions we face and the effect it has on our health. Angela’s leadership on this issue led to her appointment on the Air Quality Policy Board.
Angela Advocates for All of Us
Angela has been a lifelong advocate for our community and a voice for the underrepresented. In her time at the Utah State Legislature, Angela has kept fighting for affordable housing, a living wage, equitable education, and inclusion for all.
