Before you roll you eyes.....

Now, before some of you roll your eyes to the back of your head....take a moment to think. Are you feeling great satisfaction when you talk back to the TV and Radio....especially when your leaders take action you agree or disagree with?

No matter what State you live in, you can be a part of the process to nominate good and wise people to represent you.  You can do as much as you feel comfortable with....and you really should.  Our children and grandchildren are counting on us to protect and lead them. We all should work toward making their future as unencumbered as we can....we owe it to them. 

In Utah, we have an inspired Caucus system.  I am planning to run as a State Delegate.  If you want to know more about what Delegates do, please see this link to our local Precinct Blog.  Consider running yourself.  Who is in a better position to determine and vote for the needs of your area....than a neighbor you know?

The First Presidency recently had the following read over the pulpit in Utah:

On Tuesday, March 13, and Thursday, March 15, 2012, political parties in Utah will hold precinct caucus meetings. Precinct caucuses are the most fundamental grassroots level of political involvement. They are best served by a broad representation of Utah citizens. Those who attend play a critical role in selecting candidates for public office.
We are concerned with the decreasing attendance at these caucus meetings in Utah in recent years. We therefore ask that local leaders not schedule meetings on these Tuesday and Thursday evenings so that members may attend a caucus meeting of their choice. The locations of these meetings can be found on the websites of the respective political parties.
Principles compatible with the gospel may be found in the platforms of the various political parties. We encourage members to attend their precinct caucus meetings
In Highland, and particularly in my area, the following information applies to HI02. However, if you wish to find your precinct, please see the Lieutenant Governor's website.  

HI02 (Republican) Precinct:
  • March 15, 2012
  • 7:00 to 8:30. Registration begins at 6:30
  • Meet in Conference Room Adjacent to the Highland City Library, 5400 W. Civic Center Dr., Room A-1, Highland, Utah 84003
Democratic Caucus:
  • March 13, 2012

    Make a plan to attend your local may be surprised at how much more satisfying the Caucus is than to talking back to your TV and radio!

    The future of your children and grandchildren depends upon what you do today.
