Caucus Training with Local Party Leaders
February 11, 2014 FREE
Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox
Noall Knighton (R), Weber County
Ben Pales (D), Weber County
This seminar will allow the county party leadership to share necessary information with those wanting to be up to date on local government, attend caucus meetings or who to contact with questions. This will not be a soap box for political philosophy or recruitment. It will be informative for the “who” and “how to” questions that some may have. The county leaders are the ones who work closely with the candidates as well as facilitate the caucuses. They have an intimate knowledge of how local citizens can get involved and make a difference.
