Bill Dew was born and raised in Utah. His father, a school teacher, taught him the importance of education and self reliance. With his wife Jolene, they raised their family in the Salt Lake Valley. Bill graduated from the University of Utah and served in the Army Reserve for almost a decade. After leaving the Army, Bill built a successful construction company, building homes across Salt Lake Valley, never once hiring an illegal immigrant in order to cut costs. In recent years, Bill and Jolene have conducted humanitarian work in the country of Jordan in the Middle East.
In Congress, Bill will use the same self reliance and hard work ethic that helped him succeed in business for 30 years. Bill understands the weight of taxes and high energy costs on businesses and families. He will fight to secure our borders against illegal immigration, cut taxes, rebuild our economy, drill for oil and end our dependence on foreign oil.
