I'd like to reach out to any of you Kossacks from Utah's 3rd Congressional District or at least in the Eastern part of Utah for information. If any of you not from the area but in Utah and know the 3rd Congressional District well, feel free to add your understanding of the communities, issues, etc.
This isn't going to be much of a diary. You can add anything you want about the 3rd Congressional District. Keep in mind this diary is just for information purposes.
What issues directly affect people in Eastern Utah and Utah in general, and in the 3rd district specifically? My colleague Augustin and I are working on the Knowledge Democrats project and I've started working on a wiki page for Utah's 3rd congressional district in order to assist in our long term efforts to promote progressive candidates in that district, whether at the local, state or federal level. We understand Utah's 3rd Congressional District may be conservative but we're still looking to reach out to any Kossacks, Democrats or progressives in the area. It helps for long-term planning.
We do know for now that Jason Chaffetz is Rep. Darrell Issa's wingman with regards to the manufactured Benghazi investigation done by Issa and others in the GOP.
Also, taking politics out of the equation, let others know if you've been to the 3rd Congressional District and can point out some good restaurants, venues and places to spend time in there.
So far, I only have the basic information. What issues should be documented? What important links / articles / information should be added to the wiki page?
