Take Action

 


Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our convention last Saturday! From the speakers to our generous donors to behind-the-scenes tech support, so many people contributed to make it a success. And of course, our delegates lived up the name of Uniters and made the experience a great one for us all.

In a first for our growing party, we had a contested race for state leadership. Both Ammon Gruwell and Wayne Woodfield stepped up and ran for the position of vice-chair. We were pleased to have two great candidates, and Wayne Woodfield won. I will continue as chair, so Wayne will be serving as vice-chair alongside Brian Fabbi as state party treasurer and Allyson Riding as state party secretary. I’m thrilled to have such a great team going forward. I’m also deeply grateful for the service offered by our former party officers Jim Bennett, David Bateman, and Deon Turley.

Delegates at the state organizing convention will vote on amendments to our governing documents. We encourage delegates to review the proposed changes to the Constitution for the United Utah Party and the Party Platform so they can cast an informed vote.

The proposed amendment to the party constitution was narrowly voted down and will be reconsidered based on feedback from the delegates. The proposed amendments to the platform passed unanimously.

By number of votes, the American Bison/Buffalo was the clear winner, but by dollars raised, the Honeybee narrowly won over the Buffalo. The fundraiser was non-binding, though, and our mascot is still to be officially decided. The conversation about mascots is continuing on Canonizer’s website.

I’m personally grateful for everyone who is helping to lift this party and with it the whole state.

Together, let’s build a better Utah!

Spread Light

Over these last two weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to be a Uniter. I’ve also thought a lot about what it means to be the leader of a political party—to be a partisan—in a time when hyper-partisanship is poisoning our nation. One of my conclusions...

Reflections on the Past Four Years

About four years ago, a small group of people began talking about the possibility of forming a new party. We held several meetings in early 2017 in various parts of the state to involve more and more people. Eventually, we formed a political action committee and then, in late spring,...
