Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest.

On October 10, from 3 – 5 p.m., candidates for the United Utah Party will gather at the Salt Lake City Library to meet voters and discuss their legislative agenda.

“We have more candidates running in Utah races than any party other than the Republicans or Democrats,” said Richard Davis, the United Utah Party Chair. “This is a great opportunity for voters to learn more about them and discover a party that reflects the mainstream of Utah voters.”

Davis said the event will include an opportunity for the candidates to discuss the UUP’s recently announced legislative agenda, along with other issues that are important to voters. “We’ve gotten very specific in terms of establishing our priorities,” Davis said. “When voters discover they have a real choice, they get very excited.”

The UUP Legislative Agenda focuses on education, clean air, housing affordability, lower healthcare costs, term limits, campaign finance reform, open primaries, open meetings, and an independent redistricting commission. “We’re a reform-oriented party,” Davis said. “Our candidates believe that it’s time to make government more responsive to the voters, not to party leadership.”

Nils Bergeson, the Executive Director of the UUP, agreed with Davis.

“The fact that we have so many candidates – and not just names on ballots but candidates putting in significant time and resources into reaching out to potential voters – is very heartening for a brand new party like ours,” Bergeson said. “In fact, it’s unprecedented. It shows how strong the demand for change from the status quo truly is. I’m glad that we’ll have the chance to show many in the state what high-quality individuals we attract to run under our unifying banner.”
