DescriptionWhy a new party?

Utah needs a new political party because:

The old parties created the current problems.

The old parties serve their party establishments rather than serving the people of Utah.

The old parties practice extreme partisan politics, instead of searching for solutions.

The citizens of Utah deserve a party that:

Does not carry the baggage of past partisan politics.

Advocates for change to better serve the people of Utah, not the political parties.

Looks for new solutions while maintaining traditional values.

What Does This New Party Stand for?

We believe politics should represent ordinary citizens more than politicians. We support the following:

Term limits for public officials

Non-partisan elections for school board, county offices, and the state attorney general

An independent redistricting commission to prevent the legislature from gerrymandering

Stricter campaign finance limits

Increased funding to fix our state’s schools, especially to lower class sizes

A simpler, fairer tax system that requires a fair share to be paid by all.

How is this Party Different from Republicans or Democrats?

We believe in achieving results and finding practical solutions rather than continuing partisan gridlock and pushing extreme agendas.

Bringing together Republicans who worry their party is becoming too right wing and Democrats who believe the same about their party, but from the left.

Reaching out to independents who have not felt either party represents their more moderate, less extreme views.

Not putting strict litmus tests on candidates or requiring members to adopt extreme positions to feel like they belong to the party.
