2020 Endorsed Candidates


Here are Utah Cultural Alliance's 2020 endorsed candidates (more to come, stay tuned)!

Endorsement Process: First candidates request our endorsement by submitting a candidate survey (see the blog for responses). All candidates are interviewed by the endorsement committee, comprised of members from our 501c4 board. The endorsement committee asks questions to ascertain true support of the arts and humanities, evaluates the voting records of incumbents, caucus involvement, and any other useful information to make these decisions. They then make recommendations to the full 501c4 Utah Cultural Alliance board and their recommendations must be approved by at least 60% of the board in order for those candidates to receive the endorsement.

We encourage all voters who love the humanities and arts to support these candidates!

    You endorsed Rep Chris Stewart for District 2 despite his support for Trump’s 2018 budget attempting to defund the National Endowment of the Arts.
    In the past 3 years we have only seen 3 “arts” bills by Stewart and one of them was to protect the symbols and traditions of Christmas! H.Res.637 —(2017-2018)
    You also endorsed Curt Bramble, one of the most misogynistic state representatives in the Utah legislature. Remember that all six women serving in the Senate, Republicans and Democrats, walked out in protest as their names were called for a vote on the Fetal Remains bill which another excuse to chip away at women’s reproductive rights.
    This organization is neither cultural nor about the arts.
