WASHINGTON COUNTY —  Meet other like-minded people and get involved when the United Utah Party holds a county party convention at the Desert Hills High School at 10:00 a.m., on Saturday, Sept. 21.

The purpose of this convention is to elect county officers, help party supporters get to know each other and work together to build the party in Washington County.

“Washington County is a growing crossroads of longtime and new Utah residents, and the United Utah Party offers all an opportunity to pursue a state government that is transparent, civil and responsive to the needs of all Utahns,” said John Taylor, acting chairman of the Washington County branch of UUP.

“I’m one of the newcomers and UUP appealed to me for its candid and needed efforts to empower citizens.”

UUP Chair Richard Davis echoed Taylor’s statement.

“We invite to our county conventions anyone interested in a new alternative to the dysfunctional Republicans and Democrats. Come join us in building a new political system build on moderation, common sense, and practicality,” Davis said. “You will find other like-minded people who want to end the partisan gridlock that dominates today’s politics.”

UUP county conventions are open to the public. However, only those who are registered members of the party can vote on party business at the convention. For those not already UUP members, voter registration can be done in advance online or at the door.

The UUP is a new moderate party in Utah that seeks common sense, practical solutions to governmental problems rather than ideological remedies. The party ran 19 candidates for office in 2017-2018 and received approximately 10% of the vote — far out polling any other minor party in the state.
