He seeks to challenge Senator Orrin Hatch as a member of the Democratic Party. Mitchell is running for United States Senate to give Utah a voice and ensure representation for ALL Utahns in government. He has been touring the state conventions sharing a commitment to Every American Thriving by bringing both sides of the aisle together to engage in productive conversation when it comes to the issues facing America.
I am committed to transforming politics into a conversation in which every citizen contributes powerfully and fearlessly. It is important that all Utahns, regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation, have a seat at the table when it comes to discussing policies that will make them thrive both socially and economically.
Background – Mitchell was born in California and raised in Los Angeles. He put his art studies on hold to serve an LDS mission in France, where he was moved and touched by the generous people and their unquenchable zeal for life. After marrying and having his first child, Mitch moved his family to Utah in 1993. Here his roots took hold in the natural splendor and family-centered culture. While active in the LDS Church as a youth leader, Sunday School teacher and other volunteer positions, he enjoyed serving his fellow neighbors and contributing to stronger and happier communities in South Jordan, Bountiful, Midvale, Riverton, Spanish Fork and now in Salt Lake City. He has been an advertising and marketing professional for over 20 years, moving from creative work to specializing in logistical problem solving and managing multidisciplinary teams. With a continued commitment to his community, Mitch is now taking a stand for every American citizen to live a life they love.
