Why you should support Kathryn Allen

As a family physician, I have spent my 30 year professional career caring for my patients and 26 years in a nurturing relationship with my husband and 3 step-children. Now it is time to care for our country. I believe that the democratic protections we have taken for granted are under threat. The very nature of honesty and integrity has been under assault. Truth is flat-lining and needs CPR. There is an objective reality out there, and, as a woman of science, I intend to protect that reality. My current representative in Congress, Jason Chaffetz, has been deaf to the concerns of his constituents and has claimed that they are “paid protestors.”

More medically trained people are needed in government. We can critically examine symptoms, synthesize them, and render an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Congress is ailing and we have a prescription.

My Background:

I received a B.A. in psychology from the University of Redlands, CA in 1975. Immediately after college, my first employment was as a Congressional Aide to Honorable Shirley N. Pettis, of the 37th Congressional District of California, my native state. I worked in this capacity for about 3 years, and learned a great deal about how the federal government functions and fails to function. I then worked in a County Housing program for 2 years while I finished preparing for medical school. Duties of this job included going out into the desert near 29 Palms and enrolling senior citizens in a housing repair program. I visited many residences that did not have indoor plumbing; some were literally shacks.

My professional training as a physician entailed four years at Loma Linda University School of Medicine, where I graduated in the top third of my class. I then moved to Salt Lake City to pursue a 3 year residency in Family Medicine through the University of Utah, completed in 1987. I practiced in the West Valley area for most of my career, running my own business. This is predominantly a blue-collar area of Utah and one of the more racially diverse cities in the state. I had many Asian, LatinX, and Polynesian patients.

I have personally experienced the problems of small business owners. Toward the end of my tenure in private practice, it became difficult to make ends meet and to keep abreast of onerous regulations. I sold my privately owned practice to a large corporation with the intention of continuing to work for them for 5 years. I only lasted 3. The moral dilemma of choosing whether to do what I thought was right for my patients kept bumping up against the organization's desires that I make decisions that would enhance their bottom line. I am much happier in my current employment working in a private clinic run for the employees and staff of the Utah Transit Authority.

Past Leadership:

For about 25 years, I have been active in organized medicine. I am a past president of the Salt Lake County Medical Society. In the Utah Medical Association, I held many positions of leadership, including Secretary, Treasurer, and Vice-Speaker of the House of Delegates. I was usually in a small minority of moderating voices. The underdog role is one with which I have intense familiarity. The UMA Women's Section awarded me the Deborah Robinson Memorial Award for my activism.

My Philosophy:

I have been a democrat for most of my life. My husband and I, along with a group of friends, visited Scandinavia last year. One thing that struck us in these social democracies was how seriously their citizens pledge to look after one another's welfare. In America, we state that we are created equal and have certain unalienable rights—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. There are parts of the world which take this commitment to heart. I believe that people are not only created, but continue to actually be equal throughout their lives. I am dismayed by our elected leaders’ unrealistic promises to people whose livelihoods are threatened by technological changes in our world. The funds earmarked for the California coal port were originally intended to stimulate the economies of rural areas of Utah. Once again, the greed of a few individuals overcame what could have been a real effort to bring clean industries to our rural areas and re-employ our rural citizens.

Personal Life:

I have been married for 26 years to Craig Fineshriber, retired Utah Symphony Principal Percussionist. Craig devoted 40 years of his life to high art. I have three grown step-children and two grandchildren. Step-parenting is a skill that requires both kindness and firmness.

My interests are varied. I direct a Balkan Women’s Choir called “Darena” which presents the music of the Balkan countries. We performed during the 2002 Winter Games here in Salt Lake City. I am also on the leadership team of the Mountain Jubilee Chorus, a chapter of Sweet Adelines International (lady’s barbershop) and play several musical instruments, including the accordion. I am quite fluent in French and have enjoyed international travel. Reading has always been important to me and has helped me develop empathy living vicariously through the people who populate novels, memoirs, biographies, and autobiographies. I am a master gardener and maintain my garden with assistance mostly from the bees and the butterflies. I enjoy fitness and sports.

My Principles:

*Health care is indeed a right and most developed societies acknowledge this right. I have seen what happens when people do not have health insurance, and we cannot go back.  A mature society takes care of its needy, its sick, and its hungry and homeless. I am strongly against the privatizing of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. The ACA provides insurance to many in the 3rd Congressional District and must be maintained until a superior option is agreed upon.  

*Marginalized citizens, including Muslims, African Americans, Native Americans, and Latinos and others have been threatened for years, but this threat has been made more real by the Trump Administration. I am strongly against any effort to deport residents who have been law-abiding and productive members of our society.  People who have resided in America for years and have born and raised children here should be afforded legal protection, as was suggested in the Dreamer Act.  People of all faiths and belief systems are protected by our Constitution. They should live in freedom without threat to body or soul.

*The tribal peoples of Utah are its first citizens. Their voice has been muted by gerrymandering and prejudice. Tribes near the Bear Ears Monument area have to drive 100 miles to cast their vote. This cannot and will not be tolerated. The Tribal Coalition desiring the Bears Ears Designation put aside intertribal animosities to come together in order to protect their sacred lands. The least we can do is follow suit and come together to insure, on their behalves, that these lands remain pure.

*The LGBTQIA+ community is a vital part of life in Utah. Marriage equality strengthens families. Discrimination against any group of individuals is un-American. We should all have the agency to live our lives to the fullest and enjoy the blessings of liberty. Losing our LGBTQ youth to suicide highlights the need for support programs and education to stop this appalling trend. Recently the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that employment protections for the  LGBTQIA+ community are covered by the Civil Rights Act. I support the Equality Act on the Federal level which would remove all doubt about it being illegal to discriminate against the LGBTQIA+ community in housing or employment.  Our country has more work to do to insure that LGBTQ folks have equal protections under the law. On a personal level, losing one of my gay friends to AIDS on a bleak Christmas morning is one of the most painful experiences of my life. This experience and others has engendered in me a desire to stand up for the civil rights of the LGBTQIA+ community and to call upon others to do the same.

*Jobs feed both the table and the soul. As jobs have been displaced by technology and outsourcing, it is essential that we embrace new technologies and training programs and move forward to produce jobs for the 21st Century. Small businesses need access to an affordable work force, but individuals need to support their families; these two forces must always be counterbalanced. I favor an increase in the minimum wage. Technological change has an inexorable forward progression and is rarely reversible. We will not be returning to vacuum tube TVs, rotary dial telephones, or surgery with ether as an anesthetic. When discussing ways to stimulate our economy, these facts must be acknowledged, and our focus should be on cutting edge and future technologies, not dying ones.

*The government interferes with certain industries by issuing unnecessary regulations. If these fail to justify their existence in the protection of the environment or some other common good, they are not necessary and they hamper innovation and morale.

*I oppose any attempt to transfer Utah's public lands to private or state control. National parks and monuments fulfill a unique niche wherein human beings can appreciate that they, too, are natural beings in a complex ecosystem. Like most Utahns, I was pleased by the designation of the Bears Ears National Monument, which is within the 3rd Congressional District. This monument, like all of our public lands, must be maintained and protected for our children and grandchildren to enjoy.  

*Facts are part of verifiable reality. Ignore them at your peril. Lies are attempts to manipulate the vulnerable. Repeating them ad nauseam does not turn them into truth. The penetration of false news and propaganda into our society has weakened it. Everyone has a responsibility to stop turning to unreliable sources for our news, and to discipline ourselves to not spread inaccuracies.

* Climate change is real and we, as stewards of our planet, need to recognize it and combat it aggressively. Putrid air has dire health consequences for human beings and for Planet Earth. We must protect the purity of our planet for our children and our grandchildren.

*Tax cuts for the wealthy are unnecessary. The gap between those most and least fortunate keeps widening. Millionaires do not need tax loop holes. Trickle down economics does not work and what really trickles down is increased income disparity. Fiscal responsibility in spending is indeed important, and this is one of my more moderate views.

*The needs of public education are acute. A democracy cannot be nourished without an informed public. Critical thinking skills should be taught from an early age. Children should be exposed to music and other arts. Studies show that exposure to music enhances intellectual development. Public education should teach people how to communicate in cogent and respectful ways, even when communicating with those with whom they do not agree. We need to listen to those with expertise about the education process, and adhere to methods with proven success in the classroom. Diverting money from public schools weakens them. We can’t afford that. Although the recruitment and retention of qualified teachers is more of a Utah State issue, any federal resources available to alleviate the shortage of qualified teachers should be accessed.

*The principles of embracing diversity and inclusion are ideals of the Democratic party, and they are mine as well. I firmly believe that humanity is part of a tapestry that links us with all other life forms on the planet. Often in our day-to-day lives, we may not appreciate this interconnection and interdependence, but it is there nonetheless. Humans caring for one another is not a platitude; it is a necessity. Empathy and respect should guide our interactions, even with those with whom we disagree.

*I believe in equal pay for equal work. The powers in our world today are out of balance due to many factors, one of which is that the feminine archetype is largely missing. Government needs women who can build consensus, foster tolerance, and show compassion. We can nurture ideas and bring them to fruition just as we nurture our families. Our collective wisdom needs to be outed. Studies show that a critical mass of 3 women in a group of 10 can alter the "group-think," allowing breakthroughs that lead to creative solutions. The Equal Rights Amendment is a confirmation of the value of women to our society, and its long-overdue approval is the patriotic choice.

*The scientific method, while not perfect, is the best model we have for ascertaining whether a theory is correct, whether physical laws of our universe are valid, whether a medication is safe and effective, and whether vaccines cause autism. My campaign will be run on scientifically verified data. Vaccines do not cause autism and climate change is real.

*I wholeheartedly support the arts. They feed and nourish us, especially at times when we are collectively stressed. They lift us out of ourselves and propel our culture to examine itself. The idea that the NEA and public radio could be defunded is appalling to me.

*Substance abuse and addiction problems are draining our world of potential. We need effective programs to prevent and rehabilitate those who have been afflicted by this scourge. It tears families apart and causes unbelievable pain. I know this firsthand, as I come from a family with many addiction problems.

*We need immediate reform of campaign funding. One should not be able to buy a public office. Corporate America is overly influencing our elections. I would like to see public financing of campaigns without reliance on large Super Pacs and other huge donations from corporations. I do not want to be on the floor of Congress and forced to vote against my conscience because of some donation I received from the corporate world. Citizens United should be re-visited by the Supreme Court.

*Veterans deserve timely medical care in state-of-the-art facilities. They deserve primary care doctors and specialists customized for treating loss of limb, PTSD, and other needs. Most of all, they deserve our thanks.

*Gerrymandering is akin to a botched surgery. Our legislative districts should not be resected into pieces specifically designed to disenfranchise a political party, a minority, or the non-religious. A democracy cannot function without checks and balances, as our founding fathers made abundantly clear. A one party system with no opposing voice creates a ripe environment for tyrrany and loss of constitutional protections that every American cheriches. I am working actively on this issue with others.

*Coalitions of citizens are important for effecting change. It is my hope to bring together moderate democrats, moderate republicans, liberals, and concerned citizens of all stripes to fight against an administration which has threatened freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press. If an administration is corrupt, it needs to be exposed and expelled. Our electoral process must be safeguarded and remain pure and free from interference. The emoluments clause is a part of our Constitution and it was put there for a reason. Public officials should not benefit financially from their positions of power.

*Extreme partisanship is destroying the sanctity of civil discourse and debate. We need new men and women in Congress who can reach across the aisle and forge alliances for the betterment of our nation. These new leaders will serve as role models to begin the process of bridging the animosity that divides democrats from repulicans, conservatives from liberals. Stonewalling is destructive and unpatriotic. Forward progress is what America has always been about. It is in our national DNA. We reject our own heritage when we put partisanship above loyalty to our core values.

*Pets are family members for many of us. They should not be abused or mass produced in "puppy mills."

*Acknowledging that complex problems do not have simple solutions is an initial step toward solving those problems. We need realists who can acknowledge the gravity of a situation while simultaneously thinking creatively and inventively about possible solutions. Let's talk values; values are the root of the humanity tree just as issues are its top growth.

*Patience and persistence are what produces change. It may not come as quickly as we wish, but citizens must engage for the long-run and celebrate small victories as they come. We face daunting obstacles and it will take stamina to make positive change happen. We need to set minor differences aside for the greater good, and unite in a common cause to protect our rights and freedoms.

    “First, I must admit that I will support ANY opponent to Chaffetz because he is a traitor disguised as a politician, and complicit in Republican attempts to destroy our democracy. HOWEVER - Kathryn Allen is an exceptional candidate and very obviously a thoughtful, patriotic and morally grounded person, and I will enthusiastically support her candidacy. The people of Utah's 3rd will be well served and represented - much more so than they are now. Utah 3rd- don't allow yourselves to be fooled. You are currently "represented" by a man who is an enabler of criminals and anti-democratic, unpatriotic, power hungry individuals who are trying to rob the american people of the power our constitution bestows on us, and to restructure government to rob wealth from millions to enrich the already wealthy. He is a traitor to our democracy. My parents and grandparents - YOUR parents and grandparents DID NOT FIGHT, STRUGGLE AND DIE to preserve our nation's existence only for creeps like Chaffetz and his conspirators to take down our REPRESENTATIVE and ACCOUNTABLE government. THIS is our generation's fight to protect the nation we love. Unfortunately this is not hyperbole. Our battlefield (mercifully) will be on the campaign trail in our communities, unlike our parents and grandparents who spilled blood to make sure that peace and justice could be preserved around the world. It is a worthy battle we will fight, and thanks to our predecessors, we will only have to sacrifice our time and effort, with ballots as our ammunition, to remove the domestic enemies who have waged war on YOU by stripping your rights, flaunting the law and violating the most minimal standards of ethics. Kathryn Allen will do the right thing - she will represent you - she will defend the constitution from ALL enemies foreign and DOMESTIC. One of these current domestic enemies is your current representative. Hold him to task. Ensure your rights are protected and your freedom genuinely preserved. ELECT KATHRYN ALLEN TO REPRESENT YOU!!! Good luck Kathryn.”
