BYU’s Daily Universe has published its profiles of the major candidates in the Third Congressional District’s race. From their piece on Dr. Allen:
“One of the reasons that I chose to run for office is because I wanted to stand up to the Trump administration and I don’t see any of the other candidates willing to do that,” Allen said
Allen said she feels her experience as a health care professional uniquely qualifies her to represent Utah’s Third District and said she feels ready to represent its residents.
“I advocated for my patients and I want to advocate for my constituents in a way that hasn’t been done,“ Allen said.
Allen said she hopes to engage and empower students, as she believes student voters have immense power.
“You have to realize the potential for influence that you have and as far as I’m concerned, this is the first major election that your generation could play a deciding role in. You could change the course of our country right now. And I look to you for hope. I think you’re the hope for the whole future,” Allen said.
