It would be nice if campaigns could be successful simply by knocking on doors and making phone calls to the voters in our district. The unfortunate reality is that campaigns cost money to inform voters through printed materials, websites, social events, and more. Your donation to help our campaign succeed in reaching voters is very much appreciated! Thank you!

The Information Age is also the Communication Age and, at the moment, Facebook and Twitter are two of the most popular ways to quickly communicate with our supporters. Please take some time to connect with us and maybe even "like" our Facebook page! Though we don't "tweet" a lot, we promise to get better at it if you care to "follow" our campaign!

Get To Know Your Candidate

Thank you for you interest in my candidacy! What follows is a snapshot of certain stages of my life and a little about the family I descend from. It is my sincere hope that count on your support through your vote on November 4, 2014!

I was born in Salt Lake City in 1969, to Loni F. DeLand and Cheryl Elaine (Vallejos) DeLand. I attended public education schools including Oakwood Elementary, Bonneville Junior, and Cottonwood High School from where I graduated June 3, 1988 and where I proudly served as a Student Attorney, Student Court Justice, and Student Senator. Also during my high school years, after raising necessary funds, I participated in the “Close Up” program which provided a unique opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. and Williamsburg, Virginia to observe the three branches of our federal government, interact with members of Congress and other government representatives. I was intrigued by government and envisioned one day participating at some level as a representative of the people. First, I felt a calling to serve my fellow citizens as a police officer and so, in 1992, I took the first step on the path many in my family had set before me.

Issues We All Encounter

How Nick will tackle them.

Though I have my own thoughts on particular issues, I am not running for the House of Representatives to represent my own interests. I am running for the House to serve as the voice of the people who live in District 42 specifically, and the citizens of Utah generally. That said, here are a few thoughts on some particular issues that I see as important, as do many residents of District 42. I encourage the residents of the district to email me their own thoughts on issues that concern them. The only way I can truly represent the district is by learning what is important to you! Feel free to email your thoughts to
