The Elements of Delegation

February 19, 2020

The Democratic primary season is in full swing, with Utah's primary day, March 3rd, right around the corner. But, what is the impact locally on Weber county and how do people make their voice heard? To answer those questions, we sit down with 2016 national delegate (and the longest JCP sponsor) Ashley Wolthuis to chat about how she became a national delegate from Weber county, what it was like in Philadelphia, and what #JCPeeps can expect this time around in Milwaukee this July.

Plus, we're chatting with Alliance for a Better Utah's Katie Matheson to breakdown Week 3 of the legislative session.
