Platform Committee Finishes Proposed Platform

Convention Location Announced
West Jordan Middle will host SLCo Dems in 2014
The Functions Committee announced that West Jordan Middle School (7550 S. Redwood Road, West Jordan) will be the location for the 2014 Salt Lake County Nominating Convention on Saturday April 12, 2014.
Saturday April 12, 2014 ended up a difficult day to schedule a convention. As the County Party typically uses a high school for its conventions, April 12 is ACT testing day, which meant that all high schools were taken. After some scrambling, the Functions Committee found this middle school as an appropriate venue. More details will be released following Neighborhood Caucuses on March 18.

County Party Constitution Amended
Amendment to grant Delegate status to Precinct Chairs
