UVU Precinct: 14 (84058)

U.S. REPRESENTATIVE (DISTRICT 3)

REPUBLICAN – Jason Chaffetz

“The best hope for the United States of America, our families, and our future is to return
to the core Republican conservative principles of FISCAL DISCIPLINE, LIMITED
GOVERNMENT, ACCOUNTABILITY, and STRONG NATIONAL SECURITY.I am driven by what is right, guided by the Constitution, and committed to integrity and
personal responsibility. I will be loyal to Utah and dedicated to conservative principles.”

DEMOCRAT – Bennion L. Spencer

“I believe in fiscal discipline and a strong military. I oppose abortion, and believe that marriage is a union between a man and a woman. We must stop illegal immigration at the border and protect American jobs. Combating global arming and moving America towards greater energy independence is vital. America must win the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and bring our troops home. I firmly support the right of Americans to bear arms. Together, we can bring responsible government and moral leadership to Utah.”

CONSTITUTION – Jim Noorlander

“Since 9/11 the printing of fiat money has caused unprecedented inflation, driving oil
prices through the ceiling. Our borders are wide open because of a plan to create a new
regional government. Voting for either major party is tantamount to rearranging the
chairs on the TITANIC. Socialism, the cause of our nation’s problems, and the principles of liberty are diametrically opposed. I will do everything within my power to stop this insanity. My commitment is to the Constitution in the tradition of the Founding Fathers.”

STATE REPRESENTATIVE (DISTRICT 60)

UTAH ATTORNY GENERAL

REPUBLICAN – Mark L. Shurtleff

“I am honored to serve as Attorney General and take seriously my charge to
protect you from criminals and ensure justice for victims.”

DEMOCRAT – Jean Welch Hill

“Jean Welch Hill will be Utah’s public watchdog. She will continue to be a fierce advocate for public education and lead the ongoing fight against vouchers. She will also push for campaign and ethics reform, end the troublesome conflicts of interest in the attorney general’s office and rein in predatory lending practices.”

LIBERTARIAN – W. Andrew McCullough

“The Libertarian Party supports smaller government, lower taxes and more freedom. I will work to implement those principles by making the State’s legal office less intrusive. I envision fewer children taken from their parents by the State, fewer people going to jail or prison for simple possession of drugs, and less misuse of government power.”

UTAH GOVERNOR AND LT. GOVERNOR

REPUBLICAN – Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. & Gary R. Herbert

“.We’ve had great success in providing record tax cuts while simultaneously funding education at historic levels. We’re building a competitive economic environment that is instrumental in bringing new businesses to Utah and helping home-grown businesses thrive. But there is work still to be done to address pressing needs of individual Utahns, to have access to affordable health insurance, continue economic growth and focus on K-16 education to ensure we have the workforce we need to succeed.”

DEMOCRAT – Bob Springmeyer & Josie Valdez

“The American Dream is the bedrock of our Utah family values. It’s a dream shared across races, regions, and religions. If you work hard, you shouldn’t have to struggle to support a family. If you get sick, there should be health care you can afford. You should be able to give your children a good education, with the opportunity of college for all hard-working students. Over the past four years, for too many Utahns, this dream has slipped away. Together, we can do so much better.”

LIBERTARIAN – “Superdell” Dell Schanze & Joey Hobbs

“‘Superdell’ is your only choice because YOU didn’t file.There are only three people on the ballot and ‘Superdell’ is the only one that is NOT socialist. If you are unsure, then fill your heart with love, completely open your mind and pray to God earnestly. You can’t afford to get this wrong and will be held accountable for your choice.”

UTAH STATE AUDITOR

Clare Collard (DEMOCRAT)

Richard D. Proctor (CONSTITUTION)
Mike Stoddard (LIBERTARIAN)

UTAH STATE TREASURER

REPUBLICAN – Richard K. Ellis

“The State Treasurer is the custodian of public funds. Fulfilling this role includes providing state agencies treasury management tools to efficiently collect money, and safely investing the money until it is disbursed. The treasurer is also responsible for structuring bonds sales as authorized by the legislature and working with the bond rating agencies.

“My qualifications for this position include a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and a Master of Business Administration degree. I have spent 23 years working for both the private and public sectors in public finance. My experience includes working with all the major banks in Utah implementing treasury management tools to improve the efficiency of cash collection and disbursement.”

DEMOCRAT – Dick Clark

“Though the State’s investment have done well do to Ed Alder (the current State
Treasurer), there is room for improvement and I think I can do better. I would not change
much, but change the shift a little to looking at supply and demand in addition to what the
State has done, relying on fundamentals alone. I am an advocate of learning economics, the most influential financial influence on our lives, yet most misunderstood and neglected. I intend to make it more important, in terms of education.

“I am running because of my three sons: 2 were in Iraq fighting for us a year ago, and my third son is a member of the Salt Lake Metro Gang Unit, risking his life every night. It was time, after thirty-five years, to do my part for the State.
