Michael Hunter, Secretary

Michael Hunter was born and raised in Provo, Utah. While attending Brigham Young University, Michael’s love for the United States of America solidified as he became interested in international affairs, government, and the political process. This led him to pursue a BA degree in Political Science. While attending BYU he met his beautiful wife, Hollie Jones. They have been blessed with 3 children and live in Spanish Fork, UT. Michael is working to help continue a family and community legacy by working for the family business, Jones Paint & Glass. Michael and Hollie are committed to family and community. Hollie works as an educator at Spanish Fork High School.

Michael joined the United Utah Party while looking for a way to unite friends and family over extreme and divisive political opinions. He found hope for common ground, compromise, and productive political debate that leads to uniting over political issues, rather than division. Michael believes that Utah is amazing and uniquely positioned to show the United States that a strong third-party option can lead to more productive solutions and better outcomes for all people by uniting citizens from all political perspectives, and opening productive dialogue to solve the difficult problems that face Utah and the nation.
