Weber County Constitution Party to meet to elect leadership
ROY — Weber County Constitution Party members gather Saturday to elect party leadership.
They’ll also be trying to drum up interest among party members in running for city office in elections this cycle, said Lisa Jackson, a party member. “We need people that can get experience at a smaller political office,” she said.
Saturday’s party convention starts at 6 p.m. and will be held at the Hope Community Center in Roy, 5051 S. 1900 West, according to a press release from the party.
“Our party is extremely conservative fiscally, socially and morally. Our party loves the founding fathers and mothers, the United States, the United States Constitution and freedom,” Jackson said. She estimates the party, founded in 1999, has more than 400 members in the county.
Among the Weber County Constitution Party leadership posts to be filled are chairperson, vice chairperson, membership director, secretary and treasurer.
Several city council and at least two mayoral posts across Weber County — technically nonpartisan — are up for grabs this cycle, with the official filing period going from June 1-7.
