A few weeks ago Utah Congressional candidate, Peter Clemens, and I were introduced. Peter is a well respected and successful doctor practicing in Ogden, and I'm a displaced running shop owner doing podcast interviews out of a tan van down by the river...we can't make this stuff up, but it does seem like a match made by the fates. Dr. Clemens, but because we're at a trail head in Ogden sitting in lawn chairs and working out of a Dodge van, I'll be less formal and refer to Utah's 1st District democratic congressional candidate as 'Peter.' Peter humbly accepted my invitation to talk about his candidacy and afforded me the freedom to ask anything I wanted about current political issues and the differences between him and the current Utah 1st District congressman, Representative Rob Bishop. The result is a fast paced 90 minute interview produced by Brandon Long, one of my partners at The Banyan Collective. Please check it out, I think you'll have a good sense who Peter Clemens is and what he wants to accomplish as Utah's congressional representative. And don't forget to VOTE in November!
Here's the original copy for The Banyan Collective website:
Did you know America's healthcare system is the 4th largest economy in the world? Could Hill Air Force Base be at risk of closing because of a political score? Has congressional representative Rob Bishop lost touch with Utah and the people he represents? Peter Clemens is running for Utah's First District congressional seat currently held by Representative Rob Bishop. In this exclusive episode of Mr. Goodyear's Neighborhood, we sat down with Democratic candidate Peter Clemens and discussed these issues and many more.
Peter is an Army Veteran and a successful doctor who has been practicing in Ogden for a very long time. He has become rooted and connected to the Top of Utah community and feels compelled to enter the political arena because 'congress is broken and Utah's First District seat is part of the problem.' This was a no-holds barred interview: Peter agreed to come on the show at the 22nd Street trail head with no prep ahead of time and agreed to answer anything we asked him without any conditions. The result is 90 minutes of rapid political talk where we're proud to say, no political stone was left unturned.
