Brian is the type of common-sense leader that we need in the Utah Senate. He has the professional expertise to make the right decisions for our community. Perhaps more importantly, he has the personal background to make compassionate decisions. I urge you to join me in re-electing Dr. Brian Zehnder.” "

"Senator Brian Zehnder is a strong addition to the Utah State Senate. His work as a physician makes him uniquely qualified to help the State address difficult health care issues. Brian has already shown that he is hard-working and effective. I encourage your support of Utah State Senator Brian Zehnder." - Governor Gary Herbert

"Hi, I'm Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox. I'm so excited to endorse Brian Zehnder's bid for Utah Senate, District 8. His expertise as a medical doctor, and his dedication to public service make him a true asset in the Utah Senate. Perhaps more importantly, he is a bridge builder that works with colleagues from both sides of the aisle, consistently putting people over party. Brian Zehnder is right on the issues and right for our state. I hope you'll join me in supporting him this November." - Spencer J. Cox, Utah Lieutenant Governor

"I have enjoyed working with Senator Brian Zender since he was elected just prior to the 2018 Legislative session. We have held a couple of town halls together and I've observed how much he cares about his constituents. He wants to hear what they say and he listens attentively. His expertise was pivotal in our finally being able to pass the Medicaid Expansion program in the State. His conservative views and knowledge of medicine is of great value to the Senate and to his constituents."
Bruce Cutler
House of Representatives - District 44
“When Brian Zehnder ran for the vacant senate seat, he was not my first or second choice. However, I attended a meeting at Midvale City Hall with him prior to the caucus and was quite impressed. With very little time from his election to the start of the legislative session he performed amazingly well. He is the only medical doctor in the senate and was able to sponsor and refine bills that were within the area of his expertise. He also rapidly formed relationships with other senators to get the understanding he needed to represent us properly in his voting. He is also ready to oppose his peer group when the issue being discussed is not in our best interest or the interest of the cities in which we live. I will be supporting him in the coming election.”

David Olsen


"Thank you Senator Zehnder! I have been a regular attendee at the legislature for over a decade, and I want to compliment your work in this new role on several levels, and I am very proud that you are "my" Senator in replacing Dr. Shiozawa. First, you were thoughtful, careful and compassionate in your handling of difficult issues while being fiscally responsible. Second, your expertise in the area of health care and health policy were evident and quite valuable. Third, I greatly appreciated your regular communications to your constituency, the "video house calls" and other messages. Finally, thank you for being open to hearing the concerns of your constituents, knowing that may sometimes be conflicting, but being willing to represent those concerns to our legislature (even if it was not the most popular comments to be shared)."
Marc Babitz
Deputy Director at Utah Department of Health, Delegate
"I have been very impressed with the job Sen. Zehnder has done in his short two months in office. He is a very educated, informed, humble and kind man and I am so happy to have him represent me as my senator. It has been especially helpful to have his expertise as a physician in the Senate and I am glad he was able to contribute to the expansion of Medicaid and for the yes votes he took on many other bills that I favored personally. Thank you for your service, Brian, and may you be elected again!"

Liz Zetner


"I really appreciate Senator Zehnder's willingness to listen and learn to issues. His service to our community is admirable. Keep up the GREAT WORK!"
Randy Thomas
Unified Police Department of Greater Salt Lake, Delegate
"If you ask most people who their State Senator or Representative is, you'll get blank stares. If all legislators were like Brian, that would never happen. Brian is so pro-active in reaching out to his constituents to make sure he is representing their best interests, you would have to live under a rock to not know that Brian Zehnder is your senator."

Michael Barth

"This is Murray City Mayor Blair Camp. I'm proud to be endorsing Dr. Brian Zehnder for reelection in Senate District 8. I really appreciate the way in which Senator Zehnder represented the citizens of Murray City in this past legislative session.
Brian was accessible, responsive, and he worked hard for the interest of our citizens. Although I didn't know Dr. Zehnder before his election to the Senate last year, I now consider him a friend and advocate. I encourage all Murray residents in Senate District 8 to vote to reelect Senator Brian Zehnder."

Mayor Blair Camp

“Senator Brian Zehnder has stepped in and done a wonderful job in the Utah State Senate this year. He is very thorough and thoughtful. He brings a great deal of expertise in the medical fields and he also brings a good dose of common sense. It has been a pleasure to work with him and I look forward to serving with him in the future. He cares deeply about the constituents in his senate district and represents them very well.”
Evan Vickers
Utah State Senator - District 28

“Senator Zehnder really hit the ground running in January. He is a fabulous Senator and made an immediate impact in the legislature. He is well liked and has a bright future in Utah.”
Todd Weiler
Utah State Senator - District 23

"Senator Brian Zehnder is not only a wonderful physician and loving husband and father, he represents his district with integrity in all ways! He listens to his constituents and considers their viewpoints as he votes in the Senate. He is committed to work hard and brings all his knowledge and expertise to the Senate. No one else could represent the district better!"

Ann Millner
Utah Senator - District 18

“Senator Zehnder has proven himself to be an effective leader in just a short amount of time. His focus on limiting government, reducing regulations and increasing funding for education while cutting income taxes has helped keep Utah one of the strongest economies in the country. District 8 has been well-served by Senator Zehnder. Please join me in supporting his re-election campaign.”
Wayne Niederhauser
President of the Utah Senate

"Senator Zehnder hit the ground running and has represented his district very effectively. He has my enthusiastic support"
Curt Bramble
Utah State Senator - District 16

"Brian Zehnder was a pleasant and surprising addition to the Senate. He listened, studied, investigated, understood and then became a strong voice for his district. He made a positive impact in the Senate."
Wayne Harper
Utah State Senator - District 6

"It has been my pleasure to work closely with Sen. Zehnder this past session of the Utah Legislature. He is a quick learner and made an immediate impact on our work. With the upcoming changes that will occur in our body with the next election by members who have decided not to run, Sen. Zehnder will quickly grow into leadership. I strongly recommend him for the Western Legislative Academy. He is a sure winner."
Lyle W. Hillyard
Utah State Senator - District 25
