Hello clean-air-and-climate friends: Please join us on zoom (link available via email) from 7-7:40pm MT every other Wednesday night: W Sept 21, W Oct 5, etc. All are welcome! We’ll talk about the Four P’s—Policy, Plan, Purchasing Power, and People—as we prepare to qualify for the Nov 2024 ballot by collecting signatures from F Feb 17 to W Nov 22, 2023. (Mark your calendars, and follow the previous link if you’re new to the campaign and want to get caught up!)

Internships with the campaign are available for spring 2023 through the Hinckley Institute at the U of U, the Institute of Government and Politics at USU, and maybe at other schools as well; please help spread the word and email us with questions!

Endorsements: On our zoom call on W night we will consider endorsements for two air quality champions: Katie Olson, the Democratic candidate for House District 48 (South Jordan, Herriman, Riverton) and Steve Handy, the Republican incumbent in House District 16 (Layton) who is running a write-in campaign because the Republican caucus system chose a different candidate. Please send or bring your thoughts!

Policy: We are excited to be in contact again with Rep. Joel Briscoe (D-SLC) and look forward to sharing more news on this front in the weeks ahead!

Plan: We are working on finalizing and synthesizing all of the research in the signature gathering document! We’ll have more to share next time but for now here are drafts of short summary documents (2 or 3 pages each) for 11 areas covering 29 districts: the Logan area (2 districts), the Ogden area (3 districts), the Davis County area (2 districts), the east Salt Lake County area (6 districts), the west Salt Lake County area (5+ districts), the Tooele area (1+ district), the Park City area (1+ district), the north Utah County area (4+ districts), the south Utah county area (2+ districts), the SW Utah area (3 districts), and the SE Utah area (1- district). Feedback welcome!
