For me, integrity is fundamental to the Utah Republican Party. Integrity means doing what is right. By acting with integrity, we reflect positively on the values and reputation of the Party and its brand. In order to do what is right, for ourselves and for the Utah Republican Party, we all must follow the rule of law, act with integrity and honesty in all matters, enforce our rules, and be accountable for our actions.

Our Mission Statement:

Build a financially sound County Republican Party by raising funds independent of special interests to help finance candidates who represent the Utah Republican Party Platform.
