Fred Cox for Utah Republican State Central Committee

Fred Cox for Utah Republican State Central Committee

Salt Lake County Delegates:

Thank you for being involved to help the Salt Lake County Republican Party. Thank You for your willingness to come to the County Party Convention next weekend.
There is Meet the Candidate Night Friday, April 21 from 7pm to 9pm at Cottonwood High School, 5715 S 1300 E, Murray, UT 84121.
The Convention is also at 5715 S 1300 E, Murray, UT 84121, Saturday April 22 from 10am until we are done. Check in starts at 8am.I would suggest coming at least by then.
The north main entrance doors are closer to the auditorium. Most of the candidates will be meeting in the gym, which is visible from there.

Come and Vote. At stake is our County Party Officers, plus 29 of 180 members of the Utah Republican State Central Committee.

You can learn about them here

and here

Don't worry about any one "Slate" of candidates. There could be several "Slates of candidates". There are at least 45 candidates for the 29 SCC spots to represent our county. Some of the best candidates never make it to any "Slate".

You don't have to vote for all 29 spots, just don't vote for more than the elections chair tells you.

I started attending the SCC meetings in 2010, even before I was elected. Periodically one group tries to run over another group. It isn't always pretty. This year one group that tried to run over another group, and found they didn't quite have the votes, is trying this year to stack the SCC with people that do not fully support our neighborhood election caucus system. You will not be able to tell by their Slate, as they will put some people from the "other side" on the Slate. You are better off to do your own research and consider all information from all sources.

We need to stop trying to bulldoze over people that don't agree with us on one issue and work on the issues we do agree on. We can agree to disagree.

Why vote for Fred Cox for Utah Republican State Central Committee?

I am a current member of the Utah Republican State Central Committee representing Salt Lake County and a former member of the Utah House of Representatives.

I am an active defender of the Neighborhood Caucus Election and Convention System, with knowledge of both the state and county documents along with state election laws. 

I have not missed any of the state central committee meetings (since 2010) and am not afraid to stand up and be heard.   
Vote Fred Cox for Utah Republican State Central Committee, to represent you, Salt Lake County, to help strengthen the State Republican Party. 
We agree on many things and should work on those areas first. We don't need one faction of the party running over another. We should work together.
