Angela Romero (born in Tooele, Utah) is an American politician and a Democratic member of the Utah House of Representatives representing District 26 since January 1, 2013.

2014 Sponsored Legislation

Representative Romero did not floor sponsor any legislation during 2014.

Pivotal Legislation

Representative Romero's bill on Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse, HB 286, passed nearly unanimously in both Houses, but it received a lot of attention from the media. Two of the main lobbyists for this bill were Elizabeth Smart and the Brown family, and they were present for many of the steps in the Legislative process.


  • 2012 When District 26 incumbent Democratic Representative David Litvack left the Legislature and left the seat open, Romero was chosen by the Democratic convention over appointed incumbent Brian Doughty, who had been redistricted from District 30, and won the three-way November 6, 2012 General election with 4,926 votes (65.4%) against Republican nominee Andres Paredes and Green candidate Mark Dee Whitaker.
