SANDY, Utah (ABC4 News) – The United Party of Utah (UUP) held its State Convention at Mt. Jordan Middle School Saturday morning.
This year’s convention will be the third state convention for the party, which has been the most successful third party in Utah state election in the past two elections.
“This will be an organizing convention,” said Richard Davis, the UUP Chair. “We will elect party officers, vote on proposed revisions to the party platform, and discuss party strategy going forward.”
All members of the UUP are designated as delegates to the convention. Party members unable to travel to Sandy will still be able to participate at three different satellite locations in Logan, Vernal, and St. George.
“We want to provide a stark contrast to the Republicans and Democrats, who only allow a relative handful of people to represent their entire parties at state conventions,” Davis said. “We want to be inclusive as possible.”
