Local Candidates File to Run for State Legislature - March 22, 2018

"Karina Andelin Brown is a self-described Utah health care advocate. She is involved with the Utah Health Policy Project and the Utah Medicaid expansion ballot initiative.

Health care is a personal issue for her. She said she is passionate about supporting and passing Gov. Herbert’s Healthy Utah plan, which she said could have helped her mother, who died in 2013. She said her mother was in the coverage gap and was 10 months away from qualifying for Medicare.

Other legislative priorities include education, environmental stewardship and economic development.

“I have a unique perspective and I think it’s important to have balance in our Legislature, and I think I can help provide that balance,” Brown said."
