ANNOUNCEMENT: Mia Love is Being featured as a "2014 HISTORY MAKER" in Houston Business Connections Magazine
# # # #
"Congresswoman Elect Mia Love (4th Congressional District of Utah) is the first black Republican woman to be elected to the United States Congress."
Mayor Mia Love is the daughter of Haitian-American parents who legally immigrated to the United States in the 1970s with the hope that they would one day achieve the American Dream for themselves and their children. Born in Brooklyn, Mia was raised primarily in Connecticut and graduated from the University of Hartford with a degree in Fine Arts. Soon after graduation she moved to Utah and married her husband, Jason Love.
Mia won a seat on the Saratoga Springs City Council in 2003, and six years later she was elected Mayor of Saratoga Springs with nearly 60 percent of the vote.
During her one full term as mayor, Mia pursued an agenda focused on reducing city spending, fighting against intrusions on personal liberty, and implementing sound fiscal policies. Despite the recent economic downturn, Saratoga Springs continues to hold the highest bond rating possible for a city of its size. Over the past three years the city has also been awarded the Government Finance Officers Association’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. Only about 20 cities and towns in the state of Utah receive this prestigious award each year.
Citing the importance of getting federal spending under control, Mia announced last May that she is again running to represent Utah’s 4th congressional district. At the 2014 Utah Republican Nominating Convention, Mia received over 78 percent of the delegates’ votes to become the Republican nominee in Utah’s 4th congressional district.
