The Democratic party of Tooele County held their convention last night, and despite no contests to be voted on, there was quite a few people in attendance. A lot of the regulars who have devoted so much time to the Tooele County party were in attendance and it is always good to see them.
It was good to see and hear from many fine candidates for public office. Bob Springmeyer, candidate for Governor made it, and gave a fine speech, as did Morgan Bowen, candidate for Congress. One of my favorite speeches was given by Jean Welch Hill, who took it to our lackluster, but pro-bluster, Attorney General Mark Shurtleff. She seems to have the fire to make it an interesting race.
One suggestion I’d give to Bob Springmeyer, is that he bring with him to each speech a ribbon to cut, a baby to kiss and a camera to pose in front of. If he is going to run against Jon Huntsman jr. he needs to learn the implements of the trade. Or I suppose, he could do what he is doing, and just address Utah’s pressing issues. Naw, it’ll never work.
