- Our Party
State Representative, 59th district, Utah
Election Date: April 23, 2012
About the Candidate:
I was born in California and adopted by my parents, Gene and Linda Barlow, both Utah natives. My father worked for IBM for several decades which stirred up a love in me for computers and technology; it also required the family to move around frequently. As a child, I lived in Florida and Texas, however, when I was 15, my father decided to accept retirement from IBM and take the family back home to Utah where we settled down in Orem. I attended Timpanogos High School in Orem and received my B.S. in Political Science from Utah Valley University. I am the Sales Manager for North American Arms, a firearms manufacturer, in Provo. I met my wife, Kandis, at a church function and have been married for over two years. We live in Orem in the new Hidden Acres development off 800 North and 1200 West. I am pursuing graduate studies at George Washington University’s School of Political Management and I am actively involved in the Liberty movement in Utah. I produce a liberty themed podcast, as well as serve as the Media Director for both the Libertarian Party of Utah as well as the Utah Liberty Institute. I am also the only Libertarian candidate who has been endorsed by Equality Utah in this year’s campaign.
