“Come, join us; enter the conversation. Together we’ll listen. Together we’ll find practical solutions. No person will be discounted. No idea will be shunned. Compromise is not a dirty word here. We can move forward above the current political gridlock with respect, compassion, and dignity for all. Now there’s a dream!!”
--- Debbie Mays, Letter to the Editor, The Herald Journal, March 24, 2018
These words perfectly summarize the excitement, the exhilaration, and the hope that was felt by nearly 900 caucus-goers at the United Utah’s Party’s first ever caucuses held across the state on March 20, 2018.
If you attended, or followed online, then you know that Utahns showed everyone that night that there is a growing hunger and thirst in our state for a party that makes reasonableness, compromise, and practicality its central tenants. There is a great yearning by those who have been left politically homeless by the growing extremism of the Republicans and Democrats to find someplace where they belong.
At the Caucuses, we boldly declared that that someplace is with the
UNITED UTAH PARTY
And we need YOUR help to take that
Message to the state capitol and Congress

The United Utah Party held caucus meetings in 18 locations across the state and over 900 people attended. Caucuses were held in nine counties with multiple locations in Salt Lake and Utah counties.
“We were astounded by the turnout,” said Richard Davis, United Utah Party chair. “Clearly, there are many Utahns wanting a new alternative. They are glad we are here to provide that alternative.”
Please join us tomorrow night at one of our caucus locations across the state. Looking forward to seeing you there!

On March 20 – caucus night in Utah - voters will have a new alternative for caucus attendance this year – the caucus meetings of the United Utah Party. According to Richard Davis, United Utah Party chair, the new party is a centrist, reform-oriented party seeking to invite citizens back into politics rather than pushing them away. "We invite all Utah voters to attend the caucus meetings of the United Utah Party,” said party chair Richard Davis. “Come join us in changing politics and government for the better."
Here's another way to make a contribution (at no additional cost to you!) that could help us in our efforts to change politics in Utah!
Designate the United Utah Party on your state income tax form, above. You simply put in the letter "U" for United Utah for both Yourself and Spouse. This costs you nothing. Any contribution you make will not add to the tax due on your return or reduce your refund.
Here's how it works: You may voluntarily apply $2 of your tax to the Election Campaign Fund to United Utah (or that's $4 for you and your spouse). Basically, you get to tell the State how to spend $2 of the taxes they get to keep from you by putting it toward a party within the state to help fund election campaigns.
So, while you can't tell the state how to spend the rest of the taxes they collected from you, you can at least tell them how to spend $2. And to us, that can make a difference.

We appreciate your support!

Said United Utah Party Chair Richard Davis,“We are delighted to present the first group of state legislative and local candidates to run on the UUP banner. Each one brings a fresh approach to government. They are young and new to politics and will offer a stark contrast to politicians. We hope voters will learn more about them and the United Utah Party they represent.”Read more

Two new United Utah candidates are heading off on a grand adventure toward Congressional seats in Washington. They announced their candidacies yesterday on the state capitol steps.
Several years ago I visited the Smithsonian in Washington and saw the Spirit of St. Louis, the plane that Charles Lindbergh flew when he made the first solo transatlantic flight. Lindbergh was not expected to achieve this feat. He was an obscure air mail pilot who received far less funding than others competing in the race to be the first. Lindbergh even put up $2000 of his own mail delivery earnings to finance the flight.
