ICRP Luncheon questionnaire results!

The Iron County Republican Party began holding bi-monthly luncheons last year. Everyone is welcome to attend the luncheons, however we specifically invite all precinct leaders, county delegates and state delegates. Following the prayer/pledge we have a Utah Republican Party Platform discussion led by Telton Hall, and then follow with a guest public official. We give the county, state, and federal public official up to 10 minutes to speak, and then turn it over for Q&A on five specific topics. We feature one guest public official per bi-monthly meeting. On the off months, we ask precinct leadership to contact or schedule meetings with members of their precincts to ask them their opinions on the five topics and any questions/comments they have. The delegate or precinct leader is then asked to report the answers back to the neighbor/precinct member.

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.
