Funding LAC – Money Talk

Saturday, August 29, 2009 | posted by admin 5:40 PM

We all get tired of money talk. It seems to consume a lot of time and energy and there is never enough money (not talk), especially in these times. Here is a pitch to include LAC in your money talks:

•    We need to fund our professional lobbyist for the 2010 legislative session.
•    We need to pay transportation costs to bring our southern Utah LAC members to Salt Lake City for negotiating sessions.
•    We need to communicate more effectively with you, our constituency, and be prepared to quickly initiate grass roots campaigns when issues arise. That involves funding a good website and newsletter.
•    We need to hold an event during the legislative session so that legislators and other influential groups learn who we are and what we are about.

We were fortunate that last year many Southern Utah Communities made donations to LAC, including AOPC, a Southern Utah organizations made up of communities for the purpose of lobbying local government. They saw the need for political representation on a state wide basis and agreed with the LAC goals. I challenge Northern Utah Communities, to set aside at least $1 per unit as a donation to the Utah LAC. After all, there are more communities in the North.

Last year many business partners  generously contributed. We need you to do so again this year and ask your colleagues to do the same.
