Protect State Rights
I am Rob Anderson Candidate for the Utah Republican Party Chair. The main reason I am running for the Chair position is that Utah is the most well-run state in the country because its people are good, but there are many threats from the federal government to trample the conservative, faith-driven values that make Utah a leader of democracy.
If we do not post our standard and fight to govern ourselves and reject the federal overreach perched on our doorstep, we will lose our rights as a State and the liberties that make the people of Utah the best in the country.
As Chairman I will ensure that only freedom minded conservatives represent our party. Our job as a party is to coordinate our elected officials to work in unison to ensure the continuation of a prosperous and conservative Utah.
Restoring Financial Integrity
Few know the Utah Republican Party is currently Financial crisis where the donors have atrophied. There are many reasons why this is the case, but the most obvious reason is that the current leadership of the Party has lost focus on essential and critical elements of our Grand Old Party.
We call ourselves a Party because we have rallied, united around conservativism. We organized a Party because we the people understand that united we the people can accomplish far more good than we could alone. The Party leadership should be accountable to guarantee that the most basic premises of the Party are fulfilled.
While serving in the United States Air Force, I learned the importance of communication. In any attempt to unify efforts, whether in war or as a group of like-minded conservatives, our ability to communicate is paramount.
As a Party, we have fallen behind the curve of utilizing technology to help promote the ideas of conservatism. There are hundreds of thousands of next-generation voters who are not connecting with conservative ideals that make Utah great and prosperous. Today, media permeates our youth. As a result, the loudest and most consistent voices are the ones typically believed and followed. It is time for the Utah Republican Party to become an influential and logical voice through outreach initiatives to our youth, minorities, and all conservative voices that are currently underrepresented in our party. I've learned, through 25 years of military service, that proactive strategy consistently wins. When we react, we are working from a losing position. This is unacceptable. We can do better.
Conservativism is the backbone of who we are. Conservatism is embraced by anyone who engages in critical thinking and common sense. Conservatism only needs to be connected to the people, and it will thrive.
