💡 Who Is Joe Levi?
When my wife and I married almost 20 years ago, we moved away from the hustle and bustle of the suburbs into a small farming community, off the beaten path. Over time, our little town group up around us. We moved our family to Cache County, with our only question being why didn’t we do it sooner.
Before we moved, like many of you, we took note of Politicians passing bills, restricting Liberties, and raising taxes – with what we felt was little-to-no input from their constituents. We took action. We started attending our Neighborhood Caucus meetings and were asked to serve in various capacities by our neighbors. I was elected as Precinct Chair, Legislative District Vice Chair, and Chairman of the Ethics Committee. Before we moved away, I was elected as Vice Chair of the County Party. In that position, I administered our website, assisted the County Party Chair, and served on the State Central Committee (SCC).
During my term of office, despite meetings in far-flung locations (Heber, Orem, and beyond) I only missed one meeting – when my father passed away.
Since then, I have been asked to serve as the Webmaster for the Utah GOP, and provide technical support for the Cache County Republican Party’s website. I was also elected by my neighbors to serve as an Alternate County Delegate and attended last year’s County Nominating Convention.
🗳 Why You Should Vote For Joe Levi
I believe in our Caucus and Convention System. – it is a wonderful system where our communities get together and elect “Neighborhood Representatives” – which we call Delegates.
These people are teachers, firefighters, EMTs, police officers, farmers, mechanics, tradesmen, husbands, wives – they’re our neighbors, and we elect them to help research those candidates who best reflect our values – the Planks in our Party Platform. Then they present those candidates to us – the public – for our ratifying vote at the General Election. It’s a fabulous great check-and-balance.
What’s more important, after the General Election has passed and all the votes have been counted, some Politicians forget about our communities – until the next election cycle. That’s when you’ll see them kissing babies, passing “feel good legislation”, and pandering to media.
Thanks to our Caucus System, the voice of our neighborhoods is still heard by these elected and appointed officials LONG after the votes have been counted at the General Election. They know they have to come back before us – the Delegates, the elected Neighborhood Representatives – to explain and justify their votes, otherwise they risk not getting our recommendation.
This system – the one that keeps Politicians accountable after the election – is under attack. Laws have recently been passed to “short-cut” the process – to silence the voice of our communities. Court cases have been – and are sill being – fought to keep the voices of our communities relevant.
We must continue this fight to keep the voice of our neighborhoods and communities – through the duties and responsibilities of the Delegates – relevant. This is something the State Central Committee must do.
If you will elect me – Joe Levi – to the State Central Committee:
- I will faithfully attend those meetings
- I will fight to restore the voice of our Neighborhood Representatives which politicians have been taking away in recent years
- I will ensure that Cache County has a voice that will be heard loud and clear
- If you haven’t had the opportunity to meet me yet, please reply with any questions you have.
Thank you for your time, and thank you for your consideration!
