County Commission Candidate questionnaire

Dear delegate or central committee member,

Thank you for taking the time to serve as a delegate. I feel it's important to vet the candidates thoroughly. As I have not seen candidate town-halls, or any debates and with feedback from others that they haven't heard enough from candidates, I felt it important we do something. I put together a questionnaire asking candidates to answer questions. This was sent out last night and they were given until tonight to respond. I understand this is short notice and I also sent out reminder emails and texts to try and get everyone to respond who could. If I receive any responses tomorrow, I will make sure to add those to this link, which will automatically update them (google drive), so maybe check the link again later on tomorrow and see if anybody else has responded as well.
If a candidates missing, that means have not yet received their response. 
I hope this is helpful in learning more about the candidates and helping you make an informed vote on Saturday.
These will also be posted to ironcountygop.org.
Additionally in case you need your call to convention or central committee meeting again, here is a link to obtain the electronic copy. http://ironcountygop.org/iron-county-nominating-convention-and-central-committee-meeting-2016
Below is a copy of the original email sent out to candidates.
Thank you!

Vacant State Delegate Election

The State delegate position from the Modena Precinct is unfulfilled and we have been unable to find anyone residing in the precinct boundaries willing to accept the assignment. Therefore, as in years past, we will hold an election for the position as part of our County Convention. 

In an effort to minimize the effect of this election on the length of the convention the executive committee will accept nominations for this seat from any duly elected county delegate for this convention. Each county delegate may only nominate one candidate. Once a nomination has been submitted to the Executive Committee by a county delegate that delegate cannot withdraw his/her nomination.

All nominations must be submitted in writing to a member of the county executive committee by 6pm April 13th, 2016.

The Executive committee will then tally the nominations and put the top three candidates on the ballot for county convention. In the result of a tie the decision will be made by a coin toss.

Chair's Message

The coming year promises to be one of great interest, challenges, healthy debate, entertaining and informative conventions and real politics. Please let us, the Executive Committee, know of your interest in meeting our goal of advocating and protecting our Utah Caucus system and interest and participation in that process. We will have several events to put on and will need lots of help. Let us know if you want to volunteer. We look forward to the coming year.
