As of today I will temporarily be suspending my involvement on The Utah Amicus as a active contributor. If you are not already aware, I am currently chairing the Utah Democratic Party's candidate recruitment committee, and quite frankly, that task needs 200% of my focus at this time.
The filing deadline for candidates who will be running for office this cycle is March 17, 2008. That means we have one month to get our Democratic team on the field. I hope you will help me with this process by submitting the names of those Utahns who you believe would not only be viable candidates, but who would better represent our communities on Capitol Hill.
Maybe that person is you. Please think about it.
Until then I want you to know that I am leaving The Utah Amicus in good hands. Bob Aagard (The World, According To Me) has agreed to help out during my leave of absence. Jeremy Manning (Jeremy's Jeremiad) is another person who has access to this blog and I hope he will consider helping out. I am also opening up this blog to any Democratic county officer, or candidate that is interested, as well as my BFF from the Right, Paul Mero.
And, there will be others.
If you have something you would like to contribute on this blog you are free to send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org, or to email@example.com.
I won't be completely absent as I will continue to pass along information on Democratic candidates when appropriate, news releases, and important submissions from you, but until then I won't be posting any original or personal thoughts, which probably isn't a bad thing.
Thanks again for your continued support.
With every best wish,
PS, your good wishes and prayers are always welcome here.
