Allyson Riding

Allyson Riding, Secretary

Allyson was born here in Utah, and apart from a few years here and there in a few states and England, she grew up here.  She loves Utah not only for it’s geography, but also the people.  She believes Utahns care about each other and their communities.  She lives in Orem with her husband and cat.  They are happy to say they are empty nesters!  Their 8 kids, 9 grandchildren and 6 grand-dogs all live close enough to gather regularly.  She graduated from BYU, loves to travel, read, play games, eat out and be with family and friends.

She joined the United Utah Party when she got tired of the anger, pride, stubbornness, and lack of cooperation in the two main parties.  She believes issues have become more about party platform than what is best for the people.  She loves the attitude in UUP of open mindedness and cooperation.  She would love to see this party succeed in providing a new, moderate party that has not become so polarized.  “This party is a good fit for me and I see being secretary a good way to help.  Thanks for the chance to give it a go!”
