Orrin Hatch ran on the premise of term limits and being a Washington DC outsider. Now he is the epitome of "insider", if only he had meant what he said and pushed for term limits!
This Senate Seat belongs to Utah and her citizens. It is not a possession for a person or politician to “give away.”
The Salt Lake Tribune made an excellent point in their editorial this week. The Senate Seat for Utah is not a possession, nor is it something to be given away or a title to be ordained upon a successor, and pretending it is Hatch's right or duty to do so cheapens the democratic process.
I am no Rubber Stamp Man,
I am a Utahan!
I will evaluate every issue independently and make decisions based on what is best for Utah, Utahans and the citizens of the United States.
Ms Devos, is showing her lack of understanding of the deeper issues.
“School choice” means different things in different areas of the country.
In Utah, school choice means strengthening our public education options, in some areas of the country; it can serve as a means of re-segregation public institutions. Historically Black colleges were indeed founded as a work around against restrictive Jim-Crow laws. Lack of equal opportunity is still a sad fact in much of our great nation. This press release by Secretary Devos is a muted version of the same practices that necessitated the creation of these institutions in the first place. What we have in Utah for school choice is unique to our needs, pushing a nationwide school choice initiative takes away our local control. Secretary Devos’ plan will result in a tiered system of various levels that will result in an inequity for our children.

One Bite at a Time!
Seems like a small step, …we are pleased to announce that after filling out the needed paperwork with the FEC the campaign is able to accept checks. Our campaign fundraising goal is $50,000, by April 1st!
Once the FEC gets us the needed information, we will immediately set up electronic donations, but until that time if you are able to donate, you can via check or money order.
Dr. Danny Drew Announces his Candidacy for the US Senate
It is official, at the prompting of family and friends, Dr. Danny Drew has agreed to run for United States Senator! We are thrilled that he is willing to take on this challenge, despite his already busy schedule as the Director of Adult Education for the Duchesne County School District, and his family, volunteer and church commitments. His thoughts are simple, “I want to serve as a Senator that represents all Utahans” and we believe he could do just that, which is why we support him. We are a diverse group, conservative, liberal and every flavor in-between. But we all believe in Danny, what he stands for, his ethics, his principles, and his understanding of and commitment to the founding principles of our great nation!
