Special Election for District 43 for Utah House of Representatives

The campaign and election for our new representative in the Utah House was very interesting. There were multiple opportunities to vet the candidates. All four candidates held meetings or breakfasts for the county delegates. We had plenty of opportunities to ask questions and discuss the issues.

The election was held last night, September 14, 2017, at West Jordan City Hall. Thank you to the Salt Lake County Republican Party Officers for making the meeting convenient and efficient for us.

According to the list I received by email there were 106 delegates who could have represented their precincts and voted. There were 53 who actually showed up and were credentialed.So that is 50%. (One person left early before the final voting and that is how we ended up with a tie.) However for precinct WJD030 all six delegates who live in our precinct showed up. So we had 100% representation.Thank you for showing up and voting, Merlene, Adam, Ty, Bruce, Skip, and me.

The fact that the election was close and my own research show that all four candidates were excellent. All four represent conservative values. We are fortunate to have quality individuals who are willing to serve our community.

Congratulations to Cheryl Kinrade Brocksmith Acton who will be replacing Adam Gardiner as our representative in the Utah Legislature.

We Need to Let Our Representatives Know that We Support Them


Exposed: The Democrats' Plan of Disruption and Intimidation

Democrats are planning an all out effort of mayhem and disruption to undermine the results of the 2016 elections.  They've put together a training handbook for protesters with detailed instructions to harass and intimidate. They are targeting Republican members of Congress for defeat in 2018.

The UTGOP is shining a light on the Democrats' hypocrisy and we've posted their manual on our website.  We want you to know what the American people are up against.  To view the protesters' training handbook, click here. 

The handbook is deceptively entitled "Indivisible", but the Democrats' plan is just the opposite - their modus operandi is dividing the American people.  The handbook bears the names of former Democrat congressional staffers, but is clearly the work of hard core agitators who have taken Alinksy's "Rules for Radicals" to new levels of disruption against the democratic process.

The New York Post reports:

"An Obama-tied activist group training tens of thousands of agitators to protest President Trump's policies plans to hit Republican lawmakers supporting those policies even harder this week, when they return home for the congressional recess and hold town hall meetings and other functions.  

Organizing for Action, a group founded by former President Barack Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations and building a border wall...." 

This effort is a disrespectful slap in the face of the American people.   Donald Trump is the duly-elected president.  And the GOP members of our state's congressional delegation – Rob Bishop, Jason Chaffetz, Chris Stewart, and Mia Love - were all re-elected by huge margins, defeating Democrat candidates who supported Obamacare and the rest of the progressive agenda.

The New York Post article continues:

"These aren't typical Black Lives Matter or Occupy Wall Street marchers, but rather professionally trained organizers who go through a six-week training program similar to the training — steeped in Alinsky agitation tactics — Obama received in Chicago when he was a community organizer...."

The Democrats hope to force their progressive agenda through with their tactics of intimidation, but together we can block their plan. Show your support for our Republican members of Congress - call their offices and tell them to stand strong against the Democrats.  Here are the numbers to call:

Latest News about Senate Bill 54

Official Statement

UTGOP State Central Committee
Votes to End Federal Appeal of S.B. 54

Salt Lake City, UT (February 4, 2017)  

Today the Utah Republican Party State Central Committee voted to end its federal appeal of Utah State Senate Bill 54. The lower courts’ rulings have essentially given us a road map for changing our governing documents to ensure we continue effectively working with our Republican Party candidates and, in effect, minimize the impact of S.B. 54. Our State Central Committee recognizes these new opportunities and has already begun the work to ensure the Utah Republican Party and its County Parties continue to produce principled Republican candidates.

- Chairman, James M. Evans
