Utah State Chair (int.)

Nate Allen

Nate earned his associate’s degree from Weber State University and transferred to earn his Bachelor’s in Psychology along with minors in Philosophy and Cognitive Science from The University of Utah. Nate got involved with election reform after witnessing how the election process doesn’t allow for people to express their true preferences leading to disproportionate representation in our government.

Jake Feild

Jake holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting from Southern Utah University and has spent his career working in the public accounting sphere, in the banking and finance industry, and is currently the director of accounting and finance at a Utah-based structural steel contractor.

He served for 10 years in the U.S. Air Force, where he flew the A-10 Thunderbolt II (affectionately known as the "Warthog") and taught the Army and the Air Force how to play nice together.

Director of Data & Outreach

Phil Boileau

Phil received a BA in English and Film Studies from the University of Michigan and now works as an independent data management consultant for businesses and nonprofits nationwide. Forward has provided Phil with the political formula he always wanted to believe was possible: More Parties = Healthier Parties. He’s a recent transplant to Utah, so be sure to tease him if you hear him mispronounce Tooele or Hurricane.
