Putting Out Fires

Smoke began billowing out of the window of an apartment complex. Someone alerted the mayor of the city to call out the fire department. But the mayor said it was just one apartment, it may not be anything serious, and he had a handle on the situation.

Uniting In Crisis

Coronavirus, earthquake, economic recessionwe live in scary times. However, the reality is we don't get to determine the crises we face.

Stand Up Ladies

A couple of weeks ago our Chair, Richard Davis, wrote about our need for good people to run for office with the United Utah Party. Since then, several men have stepped forward to throw their hats in the ring, and we are so grateful for their courage and desire to serve! Unfortunately, though, the women of the United Utah Party are still underrepresented in our 2020 cohort of candidates.

So today, my plea is for my fellow Uniters, including the good men of our party, to look for a female Uniter who would represent us well and ask her to run.

The Party of Moderation

We are still early in the presidential nominating process, but U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders is gaining momentum in the Democratic Party. Of course, President Trump will be the Republican nominee.

We Need Your Civic Engagement

The legislature has done what it should have done long beforescrap legislation that was not only unpopular but also bad for the citizens of the state. Legislators could have avoided this disaster some time ago had they listened to the voters. But their tone-deafness is as great as their arrogance.

Reclaiming our Political Power

Last Tuesday evening, the backers of Utah's 2019 Tax Referendum announced that they had gathered 152,000 signatures. Of course, those signatures need to be verified by county clerks, and even if the referendum makes it onto the ballot, the ultimate outcome won't be decided until November. Regardless, some very good things have already come from the referendum organizers' efforts.
