Get Involved with Local Politics

On Tuesday, March 23, 2010, political parties in Utah will hold precinct caucus meetings. Precinct caucuses are the most fundamental grassroots level of political involvement. They are best served by a broad representation of Utah citizens. Those who attend play a critical role in selecting candidates. Here in Saratoga Springs, we have 5 precincts. If you choose to get involved, you can attend a caucus meeting for your precinct. You can find maps of the precincts on your party’s web site (see below).

Attending your Caucus Meeting is the best way for your voice to be heard! Plan now to attend your precinct caucus on Tuesday, March 23. A caucus is the place where individuals can make the most difference. During your caucus, you'll elect delegates to go to the county and state party conventions. Your delegates represent you as they vote on and select party candidates for offices from state legislators to US senators and congressmen. You might want to be elected as a delegate yourself, or you can make a difference by voting for someone you believe will represent you.

For dates and times, see your party Web site:

Utah County Republicans, Utah County Democrats

Go to Caucus Locations 2010 to find your caucus meeting for your precinct. There will be precinct maps so you can find out which precinct you live in and then where and when your meeting will be held. All of the meetings will be on the date and at the same time.

Attend the caucus meetings on Tuesday, March 23, 2010 at 7:00 p.m., and bring your neighbors!

Family Fun Night - March 12

Mark your calendar for a FREE family fun night at Saratoga Shores this Friday, March 12, from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. There will be music for dancing, a manicure station for girls, and Nintendo DS for anyone who wants to link up and play on the stage. Bring a dessert for the dessert contest, and wear your best vacation attire for the "costume" contest (both to be judged by Mr. Martin, with prizes for winners).

The PTA will also conduct some quick business during the evening--a vote for next year's PTA executive committee members. Please come vote and meet the candidates. We promise this part of the night is quick because most family members (including adults) don't think voting and PTA business are fun, and this is a fun night!

The desserts will be served that evening as refreshments. (We will not be serving dinner, however.)

School t-shirts and sweatshirts will be available for purchase, and you will also be able to place an order for a school yearbook if you have not done so already. Yearbooks are $12.
