Hatch does not represent millennial voters

May 06, 2017 (Salt Lake Tribune)

Many opinions have been thrown around on whether Sen. Orrin Hatch should seek an eighth term in office. As a Utah millennial, I would also like to voice my opinion.
After 40 years in office, Hatch has lost sight of his responsibility as a U.S. Senator: represent his constituents. Having held his position longer than millennials have been alive, Hatch is not prioritizing and representing the issues of greatest concern to the millennial generation — Utah’s largest age demographic. It is time we have a representative in the U.S. Senate who will represent our generation and our interests.
The Utah Foundation recently released the results from its 2016 Utah Priority Project. Among the top 10 priorities for Utah millennial voters are public education, health care, renewable/sustainable energy, environmental issues and religious influence in politics. Hatch does not place a priority on these issues and very often fights against our interests.
