Fourth Congressional District

We're going to go for it.

How sad. I wish we were wiser.

I could not agree more...how sad that our representatives on the hill (and I say that with respect to local and national) feel that that extra seat (which we deserve, just not in this manner) is worth ignoring the Constitution. Short term gain for long-term pain. Just one more feather in the cap of those who want to see the Constitution destroyed. Apparently it really IS just a piece of paper. *sigh*

Has anyone even ATTEMPTED to justify this action in the face of Constitutional concerns? If so, I haven't found it yet. Almost everyone seems determined to ignore the issue.

I am extremely disappointed and almost incredulous that our state government seems willing to do so.

Hi Dave, It's good to see a fine man like you trying to make a difference. I truly believe that we have some outstanding legislators. I think that the issue just needs to sink in a little bit for them to realize that there are more important things than a fourth seat--namely, the Constitution. I am confident that if good people like you stay on the job, they will eventually see the light.

I wonder what'll happen when DC wants senators and Purto Rico wants representation too. Wait a few years and we'll get the extra seat anyways.

I agree, my fellow wannabe!

The good news is that Jeremy Roberts and some other party activists are going to introduce a resolution at the next Salt Lake County Republican Party Central Committee meeting on December 2nd in an effort to stop this bad piece of legislation. (See related Deseret Morning News article)

I urge all like-minded individuals to show up and join in the fight. Perhaps it would even be a good idea to contact Jeremy in advance and offer to help him organize a lobbying effort directed toward both elected officials and grass roots activists. (We should each be calling our own representatives now anyway.)

He's a pretty good fund-raiser from his time on the Lincoln Club, maybe a quality mailer or something could be prepared that would explain all the problems with the current proposal. I found the following telephone number for Jeremy on the web: (801) 545-0105

I am assuming that it is still current, and that it is okay with him to distribute it. But, if not, this would not be the first that I was presumptuous.
