20140412 UTCRP CC, LD mtg, Nominating Convention
Call to order – prayer. . .
We will delay for a few minutes
@706 start again (we were missing flag)
Daryl Acumen, Kirby Glad, Parliamentarian
I like our positive party. I have observed we don’t have anything to do as Republicans in this area so we should be doing some things..
I am not going to do this another year.
I really appreciate this county
A couple of years .. . .
DA) The National Party has recognized us now and they have said, “We should really use your time” since we have the data strategy.
The proudest thing I can say is that I have been one of you for the last 12 years.
KG) The things I promised to do was to put in to your hands the tools to track and get information about your own delegates and voters.
You have had experience with VoterClick so rather than a system for sending email to one secretary for updating email and phone numbers. With power goes responsibility.
You need to keep an accurate and up to date contact list for your delegates.
Feb 28, 2015 is our Lincoln Day dinner. This is where we get the money to run the party. As party leaders we invite you to attend. You will get email from me throughout your 2 year term. I send it from my personal account. I don’t send you crap (junk). You need to know what I send. Please white list me.
(((need to correct email address for Drake Backman)))
My purpose is to empower you to run the party. The information I send is important. Since the caucus there have been quite a number of changes to the delegate list.
Sometimes 5 minutes after a delegate is elected they realize they can’t go to the convention. During the course of the year as they happen we bring them to this body.
I am going to ask that we approve all the changes in block which are in the electronic list according to the precinct chair changes.
CV) Moved by EC to approve the approve the list en masse.
No discussion we are ready for a vote.
Approve the appointments of the list
KG) Electronic voting. It can often cost $5-10 / person. We have been looking for cost effective ways to do this with smart phones. Not everyone has a smart phone.
Hand raise for smart phone so we can reduce the number of paper ballots. This can make the convention go faster. We owe it to you to use our time more effectively.
This is only a test. When you check in you would be asked if you have a smart device. You would have a code for this meeting.
Those without phones would have a yellow wrist band.
We are going to test right now and vote on your 2 year meeting schedule. We need to be attending this meeting. You are the governing body of the county.
(no wifi network unfortunately this time – sorry)
CV) Motion to approve 2 year meeting schedule.
Motion carries unanimous by voice
KG) Test vote (red, green, blue) Blue wins
Second test 171 like 5 don’t know 4 don’t like
CV) Party Treasurer is excused today for health issue. Kirby will help with that.
KG) Budget is found on back of the first page of your agenda.
Budget is only a plan, not complete approval. Steering committee can adjust this around. When money is spent it has to be authorized again. Amounts up to 3000.00 are approved by the steering committee. 3k-5k is approved by EC (your district chairs) and anything over 5k is approved by you.
We do not go in to debt. We do not spend what we do not have. If we do not get the income we don’t spend it.
We talk about what we want to accomplish. We discuss with EC (25 people) and we get input from all of them. This budget has been worked on for 6 months. The EC did not approve it a couple of times. We are happy to take any short questions. I recommend that we adopt this budget.
CV) It is moved by EC to adopt the budget as presented. Is there any discussion.
Vote to adopt. One dissenting voice vote.
Kristin Chevrier) Under 10 minute training.
Chair is the voice of the party.
Governing documents – keep the rules and organize. RNC, Start Party, County Party, Constitution / Bylaws, Roberts RUles.
Constitution over Bylaws.
Roberts provides guiddelines. Quick overview of one part of parliamentary.

You cannot make scope changes within the meeting without notice
The duties of the members of the Central Committee. There are too many to talk about all of them.
1) Show up to meetings. Need at least 100 chairs and vice chairs to make a quorum. That is one of the reasons it is so important to show up. Any authority that is not expressly designated by the Constitution is reserved to this committee.
a) approve budget
b) approve appointments
c) consider amendments to C&B
d) discipline party officers as needed
2) Voter identification efforts and GOTV efforts. Building the infrastructure of your precinct with captains is an important part
3) Elect from this body 2015 at Q3 meeting you will elect 5 member C&B and Audit Committees.
CV) Situation to address as a Central Committee. Our party volunteer officer is having a problem with credentialing within a district.
?) I move that the volunteers be allowed to credential the candidates as proxies.
The candidates arrived well in advance and we would like to speak with them as long as we can. I think it is best to allow them to stay at their booths. So we have as much time as possible with the delegates.
?) Shane Pierce Leg chair for 57. I support this.
However, this is what happened. Someone showed up and said to give them the candidates credentials. So they wanted to disagree. There should have been a separate list and shouldn’t have to break rules. Let’s follow the procedure.
CV) Credential motion.
C&B Chair) Proposals may be brought forward.
We have one proposal for vote that is not on the back of agenda. Change to Bylaw 4 in response to Squire and Co. letter. The purpose was to change the internal controls for the bank reconciliation process. We need proper process.
LN) I would amend so that the Chair is not required to approve but must review.
Lisa Shepherd) Move to postpone to next meeting and refer to C&B committee.
Chris ?) This should be a no brainer. I understand the time. It would be the biggest deal and we should vote this which protects everyone involved.
CallTheQuestion) Ayes have it. We will vote now.
CV) Ayes have it. (wait!)
Standing visual vote – No’s have it.
Division. Standing # vote
Ayes have it the motion carries (224 for 192 against) the proposed change will be referred back to committee.
Adjourn Central Committee meeting
@834 – Legislative District 59 Meeting
Val Peterson) I take your vote seriously. Thanks for that. This is a representative form of government. I hope that you are getting my weekly newsletter. I am trying to publish results of surveys. We had over 600 surveys come back. I wanted to know what your opinions are.
What came out of those is the way that I voted 95% of the time.
I thank Will Fowlke who helped put some of this packet together. It was great to meet at delegate training. It was good to hear your interests and concerns.
1) Fiscal highlight on the education budget. We added $60 million for growth. Education funding is pretty complicated.
2) The WPU and then you have all these separate funded programs ie. dual immersion and others.
3) HB131 didn’t pass which was the tablet for every child. This next year you will see something from the Governor. Davis has already completed a tablet per student plan. If you follow me much I champion STEM. We passed another bill this year. One of the key initiatives is to upgrade the math skills. My son is at Timpanogos and math is something I am concerned about. We want them to have those skills so they can compete.
4&5) Alpine School and State School Board. I share your concerns especially on the math front. Heather and Dixie are your two reps.
6) Federal lands question. Hawaii just succeeded through court action to get lands back. We will have to pursue through litigation.
9) Air quality. We passed a tax incentive for those with alternative fuels. One of the things with air pollution – 60% of the emissions is from us and our cars. Those are some issues that we have to be cognizant of. There is the Stericycle plant that we ‘billed’.
HB61 for money to help upgrade equipment.
Thank you for being delegates. Today is a watermark day. We are all electing our county government. Every county officer is up for election. I appreciate the time you have put in as you have vetted candidates. I have talked with you about what you like and don’t like. It makes a difference on where our county and state goes. Thank you for your time. Especially when this is the Saturday of spring break.
?) Appetite for doing anything about marriage?
VP) In the courts now. We passed Amendment 3. We provided a friend of the court brief. From there we are waiting to see what the court does. This is a fight that is strongly felt. We are all concerned in the Legislature and want to win.
?) County and state party platforms. Their statements are different so how do we fix that?
VP) Work with Linda or Tai to work the process.
DaveDuncan) Any member can propose changes.
?) Not funding the tablets?
VP) The way the Legislature set it up was a grant process so that districts could apply for matching money from the state. Just to have internet access would take $50 million. I share your concern on fees. I have asked that we look at fees. Parents have noticed them and it is something to look at.
?) About the teachers and the math we still have teachers that are not good and need testing or review or to get out. I sit in classes and listen to their ineptness. Is there anything we can do?
VP) A couple of answers. I have shared your frustration with some teachers and in some cases we get a good result and others we haven’t. One of the things with STEM is to create a math endorsement to help teachers with skill set. We ran with 104 teachers that did a 3 day seminar with concepts and tools and trying to create a level playing field.
Kids in one class might have a great teacher and then the next year it is not the same level. The STEM bill we passed will help with that.
?) With Core Curriculum and Math 1, 2, 3?
VP) That is why I gave you the phone number for the Board. That is where the decision was made. Call them.
?) STEM I know you like. How about others? We have lost so much of the music.
VP) We need the arts but our math skills are not there. 66% of students at UVU are not prepared. I don’t understand the math piece of Common Core. I have never voted on a curriculum item from Common Core. The more we have local control we will be better off.
?) Help us understand what ASD can do about Common Core?
VP) State Board creates standards and directs the District Boards. I don’t think they will adopt Common Core in Science because of outcry. Ways to change in Math 1, 2, 3 or traditional. I feel that traditional was better. Integrated math is hard to see.
To elicit change we need to go there to the Boards.
There is a task force that is looking at governance. The School Board is a constitutional body outside of Legislative, Judicial, and Executive Branches here in Utah. They have oversight and control of the public education system. That governance task force is looking at the governance.
We implemented a parents committee that the State Board was against. They said that it has helped though after they fought it.
?) One of the things about local control is that ASD can adjust about 15% without changing the overall nature of the program. When I went to Utah State Board I was presented with the “Garden of Eden” and no disagreement. I teach at BYU but I just don’t know of any pedagogical theory that is so celestial so I am feeling there is no room for disagreement etc. I don’t know where to go?
VP) Your School Board members are elected.
?) Elected body can’t we organize along the general election? How about the Unions?
VP) They are elected. Teachers have a big say.
UEA has mixed success. I am probably about 30% vote with UEA and they have had mixed success.
?) What is the process for voting?
VP) ASD is grassroots. State School Board you apply and then the Governor puts forward 2 candidates.
?) Who has oversight over the USOE?
VP) Statute and the Governor. We are the ones that fund the system. We use WPU but then specify particular projects. Then the local School District can raise their own taxes and our influence gets smaller. They negotiate what they wawnt.
?) Federal Government able to directly fund State?
VP) Grant process straight to State Board. The Governor accepted the money so we have the ties with that.

@1000 full hall SRO
CV)Welcome to 2014 Nominating Convention of UCRP. We will begin with prayer, presentation of colors, pledge and national anthem.
CV) Thank you to all of you for starting this convention with your unity and our commitment to this country.
Thanks to the committees who helped bring this together. We had 15 Leg District meetings with 150-200 people to meet the candidates. You have been phenomenal in attending. Thanks to all your officers and others. We have wonderful relationships with those who are here. I am grateful to the candidates for keeping with this rigorous schedule.
The 2014 nominating convention will come to order.
We will hear from the Governor then Attorney General. I have gotten to know these gentlemen and they have been gracious and welcoming to me and welcomed us to the mansion and the office. He has been a very helpful with everything we have requested along the way.
Let us hear from our Governor Gary Herbert.
Gary Herbert) Thank you for the warm welcome. It is good to be home. I am grateful to be from Utah and grateful to be from Utah County.
Let me say as I heard you sing the National Anthem the Mormon Tabernacle Choir would be proud of your talent. It was a great way to start this activity today.
I am going to be mercifully brief. Let me talk about 2-3 things on my mind.
Thanks for the work you do. It is not easy. It takes on significant responsibility.
Your impact is felt throughout the state and the nation. I appreciate that you take on the responsibility of being a delegate and the heart and soul of the party. This is really the HQ of that. Thank you for your great work.
I want to congratulate those who run for office It is not easy. It takes some fortitude to throw your hat in the ring and say “choose me.” There is some ego and aren’t we glad that good people step forward and say choose me.
Let me also suggest that there are no losers. There are some that will have fewer votes than someone else. We learn and express ideas and find out how we square with the platform. I appreciate those who come short and there may be another opportunity.
Because of you and mainly because of you we are having success in Utah. That is what is embodied here at the grassroots. We receive accolades from all over the country and surprising locations. Utah is the leader in this country in so many ways. This is like cream rising to the top.
People are puzzled about why we are having success and have a great quality of life. Some of us understand why and may take it for granted. Part of Utah and our DNA and the party platform.
I just returned from a Mexico trade mission. We had a chance to meet with Businesses from Mexico – Gruppos Bimbo is a company I hadn’t heard of – Sara Lee you have heard of. That is one of their products. They are the largest bakery in the world. 126,000 employees with 10,000 products in the world. They are going to increase their presence in UT because of our visit.
They happened to have a Board of Directors meeting and met with us. They said this: “We talked about company values and your State Values. We have the same values.
Family, Faith, Hard work, and Integrity and Family comes first.”
I was impressed that they had that as their values and two that they recognized us. It is because of those principles and values that we have great outcomes. UT County is #2 most prosperous for business in America. UT is 4th most diverse economy in America. Graduation and tourism rates are improving. It is because of you.
Let me conclude that we should appreciate those values.
Team Utah – this is more to do with you and not just me. Working together with our local government and county government. You have a great set of legislators here. All of us working together to remind them in Washington of these values. When we look at our platform and what we are doing in Utah – these are the principles that were from our founding fathers. With liberty comes responsibility. Keeping government limited and efficient.
Eschewing the idea of entitlement. I appreciate working with the legislature. We have a balanced budget and we have AAA bonding with credit agencies. The fact that we now have fewer state employees today than in 2001. We have fewer employees providing services but the quality is high. That is remarkable.
Let me conclude where I started. We are a great state because we have people like you who give back. We are having great outcomes in the state because of you. This is the best state. This is a light to the world. Thank you very much.
Sean Reyes) Thank you so much. How are you feeling?
The governor just came back from Mexico another country. I have traveled too. They have legalized marijuana in CO and it is great to be back in America having come back from the 10th circuit court arguments.
I was at a Lincoln Day dinner in another county and was told that I had two minutes to speak. If I went over by a second he would shoot me. And I responded back “you had better finish me with your first shot because I pack and will shoot back..” He responded, “you just earned yourself 30 more seconds.”
I don’t have a Republican opponent in this race. I want a real attorney general who is accountable to you. He needs to represent your issues and your values.
I do have a Democrat opponent. He has already circulated fliers.
He hasn’t noted any of the audits and leadership changes that I have made in the office already. The restructuring to the Constitutional part of the department.
He hasn’t criticized the fact that we gave back money from the office. That is part of our principles.
He hasn’t criticized my visit to 27 of 29 counties.
He hasn’t criticized my fight of the public lands issues that we need so badly for funding our education. That is a fight that we are working on. I have filed a joint suit against the EPA and am working on one for the BLM. We are filing Amicus Briefs in West Virginia case that is against the Obama Administration.
He has not criticized us on the parental and family rights with children. And on privacy rights. It is your information.
We have still been effective on the law enforcement side. We have apprehended an alleged cartel member and human trafficking. This person we have deported 6 times and he has come back. We now have 21 witnesses and it is our commitment to keep this man locked up here so he will not terrorize our children in our schools again.
(switched his tie from blue to green) For my friends at UVU.
The one criticism, he has criticized me for defending Amendment 3 that you passed. He has criticized me for defending (standing ovation) Let me say this. It is not just traditional marriage – it is the state sovereign right to determine what marriage is and should be. That is why we are fighting so hard in Denver.
7 other attorney generals including AG Holder (boos) think I am wrong. I have heard that I am on the wrong side of history and it is not worth fighting.
It is a fight worth standing up for! When I took an oath. You have my commitment to fight. We will continue at the 10th Circuit and the Supreme Court if we need to.
CV) We had Sean as our guest at another meeting. We appreciate how quickly he has restored our confidence in that office. 4 of the largest counties are having their conventions today and they came here first. They are going to start trekking north.
KG) Credentials report. I am also County Party secretary. I want you to know when you sang the Star Spangled Banner did you get goosebumps like I did?
The caucus resslte we added to the list by chairs. We have reviewed list of degleats. The delegate is available online. That list was used: 1632 were authorized
Auditoriusm seats 1600. We have checked in 1492.
If someone show up at 1pm then I would like them to be able to vote. So we will continue to update through the day. You must approve the delegate list.
I move that the list be approved
CV) Adopt the credential report. No discussion. Vote with hand up credential.
Motion carries. Ayes have it.
Rules committee report.
Diane Christensen) Stan Lockhart, Paul Baltes etc. This committee has been very gracious. In your program is a copy of the rules. When the rules went to EC they voted to change on 8c instead of 2 minutes to 3 minutes to be consistent. But that was not changed on all sections. These changes have been approved by the EC and the candidates have been operating under these rules for some time.
Move that we approve with the correction noted.
CV) Any discussion? No discussion.
Motion carries. Ayes have it.
Adopt of the proposed agenda. Without objection the agenda will be adopted.
No objection? We did that in less than an hour, congrats.
Doyle Mortimer appointed as election judge.
-Don’t come up to me. He will speak to you in a moment.
Election by acclamation: Kris Poulson (Assessor), Tracy (Sheriff), Radcliff (surveyor) are our nominees. These are our candidates for those offices.
We will be using prepared ballots for our votes. If you did not receive your envelope please get it now. To explain election process Doyle will explain.
Doyle Mortimer) We have a full house and want to minimize the amount of time it takes to vote. Every ballot is for a race, ballot number and ALL the candidates running in that race. As we begin each one we will explain what to mark.
If you are worried bout a spoiled ballot you can get a re-issue as long as your ballot is not cast.
We don’t want you to get up and go and come back. What we will do when we vote is we will have ballot box go through the rows. 2 people will come through and you will place your ballot in the box. We should be able to do every round in less than 15 minutes that way. When completed we will wait for the extra people on the edges and who may have taken a break.
We will then go back to the back – election room 107 and will count.
CV) We will now hear from each of the candidates. Each candidate will have up to 3 minutes. Any breach in the decorum I will address. I am very nice and have dimples but I will enforce this. People refrain from calling in to question any candidates motives etc.
Commission Seat B:
I am thankful for this opportunity. Carlton B for commission B. I feel strongly about protecting marriage. One of our sacred institutions is under attack. Peoples actual rights of conscience are being violated. They are being forced to go against their most fundamental rights.
Came here 400 years ago for freedom of religion. We can protect marriage at the County level. As we recently saw, the recent exception of the laws were seen at the county issue. I would use our legislative authority that within UT county we will not give license. Marriage was instituted by God. Every person in this world has a mother and father. That is a natural thing and there is meaning there. A child will never result from something other than that. We could pass a law against gravity but it won’t change the fact. Same gender union will never be marriage.
Marriage has always been a state issue, not a federal issue. When we have an unelected federal judge overruling our people and governor, how do we respond? I say that we pass an ordinance at the county level to not do this. We will stand up for that.
(Commissioner Whitney) Ladies and gentlemen, 4 years ago you selected me and I nominate Casey Allen.
Good morning. It is good to see you. I have lost my voice in the speaking engagements in the past 3 weeks. I thank you for the experience. I thank you for taking the time and asking question and facing the issues. Let me introduce myself. I have lived here for 30 years. I graduated with a degree in English.
I spent 20 years raising my children. Commissioner Whitney asked me to come help him and for over 3 years now I have had the privilege of running the office and have been the Exec Assistant. I have seen what it takes to be an effective County Commissioner. It is hard work. It is more about listening and less about talking. More about planning than politics. I saw a need for more accountability and transparency. The commissioners affect your lives everyday.
I want to bring more engagement to the office. New perspective you’ve never seen before.
New energy to get new answers.
I commit to do the hard work. I am ready – more time in politics does not make better service. The longer you serve the more baggage you have thus the less effective you are.
(Nomination) Fellow delegates Bill Lee is a man of principles and integrity. There is a reason why so many delegates support him. Freedom, limited government, and fiscal discipline. It is my pleasure, no privilege go to nominate Bill Lee for seat B.
(Lee) Thank you for being here. I am Republican by choice but conservative by conviction. Conservative principles are the key to our prosperity. I learned these values from a mother who taught me. My mother said, we must trust but verify. 5 years ago I met Mike Lee. For the last 3 years i have been going around this state and applying conservative government principles. It is an honor to have your support and those up here.
Senator Lee said our communities will prosper if we reduce government. A vote for me is to stand up for primary property rights, public safety and individuals. Proper use of tax money and free market principles. I will stand fast in going after our federal lands.
I love this country and this county. Let’s stand together and go forward. As we stand up and look forward and bring things together, let us make UT County a brighter place.
Good morning. I am happy to see all of you who have come out to stand and defend what you believe is right. We shouldn’t fret for those who fight for us to defend our freedom and justice. My name is Oscar and we have 3 wonderful children. I have worked for UT County for 25 years as a Surveyor. I have retired and run my own business for the last 5 years. Many of us don’t realize how blessed we are. However our government is forgetting our basics of what God is here. Some of the restrictions of the government of our Constitutional rights.
Government will not do that only as far as to restrain others. No power is plenary and discretion can be abused:
1) land rights, 2) water rights, 3) economic development and 4) bonded debt
We need to be responsible for the decisions we make. These are items I will focus on. I love UT County and won’t change it for anything. Let me represent you and do the best job for this county. Oscar Saldana – Saeat B.
(nomination) I am James Grierson and I vote. I am here to nominate my father. Not because he is my father but because of the man he is. No job is too small for him to do. He has always taught to be the fist there and last to leave when the job is finished.
He works hard, is compassionate and willing to listen. I nominate Lorne Grierson for County Commission.
(nomination) Here as a common citizen. I met him a couple of years ago in Payson. He has faithfully attended our meetings and he has helped us. He will listen to each one of you.
LG) I appreciate those nominations. I thank you for your service. It is incredible to see the turnout. I have lived here for over 25 years. I love this county.
I am a business problem solver and get things done. I will do that. I swear an oath and I will uphold the Constitution of the US and UT as my first thought not my last. If you interested in someone you can get a hold of and have a vision. I hope you vote for me Seat B. Thank you very much.
Three sessenionl elemstn – exec, judic and leg. I have the breadth and depth that meet sand exceeds. I served on Provo City. I cut teeth on legal.
As software exec at WP and Novell I have managed mjltil million and deatl tiwth budget. In the County I provided strong leadership.
Trementdowu growth is coming and we will tackle togetrh. I will haw ill stay aghea dog the curve to deliver clean energy and wise transit development. IProperty rights are paramount. That is what made this country great.
When the legislature is in session, watch your pocket book. I will be on capital hill reminindg every elgisatlro reminding them that UT County si the heart. We cradle 70000 of the students at BYU and UVU. All we ask is that they feel this deeply and act accordingly.
I believe exceptional accountable vibrant . I do not want to expand beyond 3 . You have to show up and work hard. David Acheson, your vote.
It feels like afternoon since we have been up fro so long. My husband Allan, who is a verterman and serves in National guard. 4 sons. and some additional youth from Eagle Mountatin. As a y
As a young girl I remember my mother taking me to vote. I remember she let me stay up late one year. It was the year that Reagan was elected president. I was proud to be brought up where we knew that Regan would represent our values. I want o represent those values.
I make decisions based on lmited gov, fiscal discipline, proper role.
What sets you apart? I have experience and proven track record. I have reduced spending and privatized services. I have six years as mayor or Eagle Mountain. I ask for you vote so I may preserve the future for my children so they can take their children to vote. I ask for you vote – Heather Jackson.

Acknowledge my parliamentarian here. Thank you!
Commission Seat A
We live in a secretive society. Mch of the business is conducted bet in closed doors. It is difficult of rnew comes. The game is rigged and incumbents carry water.
There is a negative stigma with politician. THe vast majority is in it of wrong reason. THere is temptation to abuse it. Most don’t realize the bporlem. As County My Vote. We seldom ielect honest popele. THere ar e those who have served muliptle terms.
Our lawyers and jedgetna bring in the problem It is incestuatous. Occasionally one of ours gets in. We lost this game 100 years ago when stopped paying attention. Washington didn’t’ run for aooffice again.
The vetting process has gone awry. The politicians know wha tis good for us?
Good ness is a reflection of those who live here. That is what makes UT county so remarkable and foutgin. I am self mad man. What you see is wha thou get.
I care to take a stand and plegd my honor. I am ready to amok a difference. My name is Howard Stone.
Jake Adernedatg and I nominated Johnny Revill for Seat A. I have known the refills of r8 years now. The term so alt of the arth applies. It is with great pride and disticinton that I look forward to working.
I left wa while ago and thought that my mom was a good person to represent me. Some said that they would vote for her and not me. Thourhg this process you have grilled us with different and interesting anions. Who do you want to repent re you at this county.
your questions have helped me ponder the role and now as we approach this important vote I want you to think of these questions:
Is it imporatn to me to have commission wire thexpericne with service and making difficult decision.
Is it i.e. mportatn to have a record of community service and provide exceptional service?
Is it is important to understand planning and of economic and recital growth respecting private property?
Is it imporatn afor fresh ideas then yes, I am your candidate?
Someone who won’t love trnspareancy
Thomas Jefferson said honest;y of the first chapter in the book of wisdom. I entered this race because it is time to get off the sideline. The time is now to deal with the debt problem. We have restricted our local government from 0 to 240 million in debt. We need to change course right now. We need to do this ourselves.
We do this with the character of lincoln and economics of reagan. We have not seen a significant number of increase in jobs and salaries. Real econonmic growth is when we stop interfering and over regulating.
1 Debit elimination – not free until we are out of debt we need to move together.
2 Lead by example representing UT County platform. This is about all of us. Serviing us It is not able waltz.
3 Transparancy with open dialog. This has been a great 3 weeks. It is true that people tell us that we are not bad, but we can do better. We must take a stand today. Lifetime politicians think they know better. Entitlement started with policiticna.
I can resepresnt you and aI am asking of your support. I will earn your serve every day that I am in office.
Gary Radcliff) What a tribute. I am your county surveyor – Radcliff. I knew Gary for years and he is a dear friend. For those who have coined the phrase of property rights, he understands that very well. He has represented individuals who have concerns with that issue. He understands. He is the real deal. He is principled – 2 points

If tyranny is coming from neighbor or group or government it is still tyranny and I don’t like it. Last night I couldn’t sleep. I was laying back and reading the constitution and I would think about my values
Decl of Ind – mankind are more disposed to suffer while equals are sfferable but when a long train of susurpoarteion evening a dosing to gtohw off such tyranny . . .
I am not calling of reevaluation or crazy but we should take this seriously . THis ishoudl be your fist act among am nay acts.
They can’t ignore us. That is the vision.
Constitution – Article I secion 8
Secion9 and 10 is specific – we need to be vigilant of these people – they just a resmarter or just know someone or something. We can tree this in the HD TV eyes. In the last 200 years we assumed that it is just accepted. You get in line and od that. Because of an amendment that went through that has no business going through. Whe we do this and allow it to happen rather than sticking in the bound of constitution. Tytannay came in our door and the OBama are mandate and if you don’t pay the fine then you go to jail.
THis is tyranny unlike anyone. The penalty is almost 700 I can’t figure out how they thought that was a good idea.
Last night, why I was up, was because my good friend was watching this video. It was of a BLM dispute in NEvada. I shave been kind’ve o busy. I recognizes the location in Nevada. The people that brought my mom in to the church live their.
I played on theta property and phone four wheeling – I have scars. The experience is that these are good people. Clive is having the BLM, a department that shouldn’t exist, is coming in and
The irony is poetically pro Settled by Mormon pioneers driven our to ao country and came in here and now that land, that she government and tazingg these guys and knowing them over and we have a president not saying a thing to the DHS.
We have a serious, serious probe. THomas Jefferson says something to us. That is that he didn’t include that he was a president. HE didn’t that was the greatest accomplishment in his life.
He lists Virginia legislation and educational institution. Jefferson knew that even he, while he was President, even he extended it further than he would have lived in the Louisian Purchase.
Government is a concur and wants to grown and can’t control itself.
I ask for this convention oaf these deletageat. Stand with me and fellow delegates. Fill the comittesa and attend these events.
Make posts on Facebook, write letters, show what is to be a Rebpulicana.
Your first act of patriotism – if each of us give money today then there is a lot we can do.

We did excellent on pre-register. We are always ready to take a risk.looking at the long term.
At the end of the day with Count My Vote we planned on conference and other activities. Nothing is going to get in our way.
On Friday evening I was able to interact with traditional major donors. I boiledit down to 1 question. is it okay to have differences of opinion? Yes
What is the problem – it is when we become disagreeable. Most of these guys are refined and not used to mix it up because they have assistants for the … so when they come it to convention they get a little bit put off. I am translating that reality of politics to our major donors. Some of them are coming back.
We are explaining who we are and where we need to make corrections. We won’t stop being Rpulican. We are going to export to the rest of the country.
