Joe Dulin announces candidacy for Utah Senate District 25

The Democratic Party of Utah is supporting Joe Dulin’s candidacy to challenge incumbent Lyle Hillyard for the state Senate.

Logan, UT, February 27, 2008: A former Op-ed columnist for the Logan Herald Journal, Joe Dulin has announced his intention to run for the Utah Senate out of Logan as a Democrat. Dulin stated that “It is a privilege to be a part of the democratic process in Utah and I plan to give the voters of northern Utah a choice for change.”

When asked to describe his reason for running, Dulin stated “I do not want to continue to send generation after generation of Utah Children off to the lowest funded schools in the country. It is time to move from worst to first.

Furthermore, I have lost patience with the Utah senate. With a wink and a nod, they spend our tax dollars to hold hearings that demean and humiliate entire classes of people based on the prejudice and personal insecurities of their proxy, Sen. Chris Buttars. Government is supposed to be of the people, by the people and for the people – and that means all of the people. The selective persecution of groups of people and the use of derogatory racial analogies have no place in my value system or my government. It is time to end this nonsense and get down to business working on the environmental, energy, health care, education and transportation challenges facing this state.”

Dulin plans to run an aggressive campaign in an effort to unite the voters of Northern Utah in support of change. When asked why he thinks he has a chance to win in what has been traditionally a Republican stronghold, Dulin replied “After the way shabby way Mitt Romney was treated by the majority of Republicans calling themselves evangelicals in the recent national primaries, I would surprised if Utah Republicans aren’t looking for an alternative to the Republican Party. To them I say, come join the Democrats, we welcome people of all faiths with open arms. Your faith is your faith. What I am interested in is to hear your ideas about how we can make Utah even a better place to raise our families together. Join with me. We can make a difference.”

Dulin graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Accountancy from Arizona State University in 1985 and he subsequently earned an MBA from Utah State University. His professional accreditations include a CPA certificate and an Associate in Risk Management designation from the Insurance Institute of America. He has lived in the Cache Valley since 2002 and presently is a Business Officer at Utah State University.
