Neil Hansen supports family and local farmers and recognizes the importance of monitoring agribusiness, encouraging organic farming methods, and promoting conservation. He encourages enterprises and cooperatives that will help our family farmers gain a greater share of the food dollar in our markets and help reduce air pollution and pesticide use.

Neil recognizes the value of green space in a healthy living environment: Community parks that include shade trees, recreation areas, picnic areas, bike trails, and walking paths are attractive and desirable. Parks and other public green areas should be maintained using practices to reduce the public’s exposure to pesticides and other harmful chemicals.

To conserve and reduce water usage, Neil encourages the responsible use of xeriscape landscaping and parking strip areas planted with low growing, drought tolerant flowers and plants or filled in with well-maintained, weed-free decorative rock.

Neil believes we should maintain a healthy and sustainable ecosystem supporting a balanced wildlife population with adequate winter and summer range. He supports the protection of wilderness along with the right of access to use it responsibly for hunting, fishing, hiking, and other recreational activities and uses that do not endanger critical wildlife habitat or natural resources. He also supports the protection and preservation of watershed, streams, rivers, wilderness, wildlife, and canyons to preserve for ourselves and future generations scenic beauty and ecological importance. Overall, when we take care of the Earth, the Earth will take care of us.

The economy of Ogden city’s future

To attract the kind of jobs and economic growth we want, Ogden should play to its strengths; an honest, hardworking population; unique programs where we can partner education with specific business needs; a healthy environment with attractive recreational options.

Ogden city’s Economic Development can develop a much closer, proactive, cooperative partnership rather than adversarial relationship with the education system as they compete for budget dollars and tax base.

Ogden City should not focus on tax breaks as the prime incentive for attracting new business to our city. Almost any other city can beat us at this approach. We need to sell the benefits that the city has to offer

The businesses that will serve our city best are often created in Ogden or are already growing here.

Neil Hansen believes a moral imperative exists to implement policies that result in substantial reductions of carbon emissions. He supports a return to national and local energy self-sufficiency through the use of alternate energy sources to complement our present resources. Research shows air pollution kills, causes birth defects, heart disease, strokes, cancer, lung problems, immune-suppression, and other adverse health effects. There is no safe threshold of exposure and smog significantly degrades the natural beauty of our mountains and valleys.

Neil supports research efforts that will reduce and/or remove the long-term harmful effects of present energy technologies. Future energy generating capability must be developed which avoids pollution and environmental contamination and implements the best available technology.

Neil knows that farming, fishing, tourism, and other industries require a healthy environment. Clean air, safe soil and water ensure the protection of public health and help make Ogden a more attractive place to live and work. Coupled with government-supported incentives and job training programs, new technologies that reduce carbon emissions and ensure clean air and water can create new high-paying jobs.

In the twelve years of previous legislative service, Neil Hansen served on the Environment Appropriations Committee.
