The Curt Bramble for Senate campaign learned today that Senator Bramble is being awarded The 2012 Legislator of the Year Award from the Utah Technology Council, one of Utah’s premier professional associations.
Richard R. Nelson, President and CEO of Utah Technology Council said, “ Curt Bramble is stellar within our industry. It has been a privilege and honor to work with Curt. With his understanding of the industry and its opportunities—and as true champion—Curt leads out on economic growth and technology efforts at the Legislature. We are seeing unprecedented opportunity for the State and this industry with his leadership.”
The Utah Technology Council is an essential business resource for life science, clean-tech and high-tech companies seeking to achieve greater success. At its core, UTC exists to foster the growth of the state’s more than 6,000 technology companies. A significant focus of the organization is ensuring that Utah develops the highest quality workforce in the nation and attracts an ever-increasing array of funding.
“I’m deeply honored to receive this recognition from UTC,” stated Senator Bramble. “This influential group creates good will and promotes high standards as they continue to support the mission to expand the economy of Utah with a successful technology sector.”
Senator Bramble believes that the only way to solve Utah’s education funding challenges is through economic growth, driven by a vibrant, expanding high-tech industry. The benefits of high-tech to our economy and educational environment are an essential strategy for meeting Utah’s future needs. Driving economic expansion with higher paying, quality jobs in the tech industry create rich opportunities for a brighter future and will help our children to enter a more dynamic workforce prepared and ready.
Senator Bramble will be honored at the Annual Member’s Meeting Luncheon on April 18, 2012.
