I oppose the move
With the stroke of a pen, Obama used the Antiquities Act today to declare 1.3 million acres of Utah land as the Bears Ears National Monument. He did this against the will of the majority of Utahns and as a gross continuation of his administration's federal overreach into the rights and affairs of the states. I oppose this move and will join my colleagues in doing whatever we can to help overturn it.
The Antiquities act was passed in 1906. Teddy Roosevelt created Utah's first national monument in 1908 - Natural Bridges National Monument. Ironically, this wonderful site sits at the foot of the Bears Ears buttes. The total acreage of the monument is 7,636 acres - far short of its new sister monument of 1.3 million acres. The monument is well kept, has wonderful sites to enjoy, and is one of the darkest places on earth at night.
I am not opposed to the appropriate use of the Antiquities Act to help preserve national treasures such as Natural Bridges and other similar sites - though I believe the states (Utah) can do it better and more efficiently than the federal government. I am opposed to the misguided use of the act for political purposes that defy all logic.
Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes said today in a statement, "Our democratic republic is designed to be most effective and accountable when major decisions are made closest to the people but President Obama has chosen to circumvent all democratic processes and lock up nearly one and a half million acres of land from use based solely on ideological principles."
I agree. I took these photos last summer on my way to the Grand Canyon. Jeepin' under the stars of what is now the new Bears Ears National Monument.
As the Republican Nominee of District 6 for the Utah House of Representatives, I am grateful for the interest Congresswoman Love has taken in our community. Working with her and her office has always been a positive experience. Congresswoman Love knows that the best way to solve problems in the community is by looking to the community for answers, instead of looking to Washington to solve our problems. I fully support and endorse Mia Love for Utah's 4th Congressional District because she is a caring leader that fights for us every day!

I would like to endorse Cory Maloy for the Utah House of Representatives District 6 race. As Mr. Maloy’s competitor in the 2016 Republican primary I can attest from personal experience running for office is not an easy endeavor. Thus, I have a deep rooted respect and appreciation for the time, effort and overall commitment he has made to this important position.
While competing with Cory I was constantly impressed by his focus, his competence across a broad spectrum of issues, his energy and passion for politics and also his ability to focus and energize a formidable network of dedicated supporters.
Cory is sincerely interested in understanding all sides of issues and scenarios and he has a great combination of confidence and humility. But most importantly, in talking to Cory and others who know him well, the recurring theme I hear is Cory is a dedicated family man and overall good person.
Please join me in voting for Cory Maloy in the November general election. I truly believe he will do a fantastic job representing the people in District 6 and I am excited to see the positive influence he will bring to our community.

Today I found out my campaign has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association. I couldn't be more honored. You can see the endorsement here: https://www.nrapvf.org/grades/utah/
I am proud to be a member of the NRA. If you love the Constitution, become a member. As watchdog of the Second Amendment, the NRA is the largest protector of the U.S. Constitution. I found out recently there are only about 350 NRA members in Lehi. Surprising! Ponder. Join. Love and protect the Second Amendment and the Constitution of the United States.
When delegates of the Second Continental Congress gathered they would end their sessions with a traditional, "God save the King." Over time, the enthusiasm expressed in the statement decreased immensely as delegates grappled with the debate and issues associated with becoming independent from Great Britain.
On July 2, 1776 delegates of the 13 colonies (at this point John Adams insisted they refer to the 13 states) assembled to adopt a resolution of independence. Each delegate in attendance was proclaimed by the King as a traitor and rebel, threatened with a penalty of death by hanging. Undeterred by those threats, one by one, 12 of the states voted yea, with one, New York, abstaining. The resolution passed and a Declaration of Independence was adopted and a new and independent country, the United States, was born.
Once the vote had been taken, an energetic yet respectful, "God save the United States," was uttered first by the Congressional chair and then by the room of delegates. A solemn silence then filled the delegate's assembly hall as the magnitude of what they had just accomplished settled into their minds.
Two days later on July 4, 1776, an edited draft of Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence was adopted, setting one of the most epic dates in U.S. history.
Today, July 4, 2016, in addition to our celebration of independence, I hope we all will take a solemn moment of silence and ponder the meaning of independence, freedom and liberty and utter a quiet prayer of, "God save the United States."
Tomorrow, June 28, you will be going to the polls for the Republican Primary Election. During this busy and long campaign season, I hope I have been able to earn your vote. I have come to know the people of this great District in ways I never knew I would. I’ve talked with families who have lost sons in Afghanistan, the beautiful stories only individuals who have lived here their entire lives can tell, people who love living here and love our state, teachers who are passionate about our children, police officers, firefighters, and local officials. From the top of Point of the Mountain to the Northern Shore of Utah Lake, I’ve been touched by all of our conversations and have grown to love and appreciate each of you. www.corymaloy.com
As you go to the polls, you will be voting for your next Utah House Representative here in District 6. Please consider my vision for our District and State, which has been my published vision since January.
One of the biggest issues we face, one we have already been experiencing here in District 6 (Lehi and Saratoga Springs), is fast growth. Our population will double to more than 6 million people during the next 25 - 35 years. Since all issues will be magnified by this fast growth, as your Representative, I will focus on finding the solutions to address:
Infrastructure - Utah’s roads, freeways, and schools will need to be maintained and expanded.
Education - Continued emphasis on eliminating federal influence from our education system, and moving the decision making to parents, teachers, and educators at the local level.
Natural Resources - As the 2nd driest state in the U.S., solutions for increasing water availability to a growing and thirsty population will be required. Projections on our water supply show demand may begin exceeding supply as soon as 2030.
State Sovereignty - More than 67 percent of Utah public lands are federally controlled. We need to bring those areas under state control. Utahans will be much better stewards.
A Moral Society - The family, along with long-standing morals, continue to come under attack at every level. We need to protect the moral fabric of our society. Read about my vision here: http://www.corymaloy.com/issues.html
The Republican Party
I have been a Republican my entire life. The Party’s platform conforms closest to my political and moral values, and therefore I support it above any other party. I don’t criticize the party, and I don’t work to tear it down. I hold the Party platform in high esteem and have worked hard to protect it. I naturally and proudly chose the caucus and convention option to get on the Republican ballot. I have gained the support of the Party along with its many unified members. Read about Cory here:http://www.corymaloy.com/about.html
Since the beginning of my campaign, I have pledged to provide principled representation to build a vibrant Utah. As Utah House Representative for District 6, I will utilize my conservative principles to represent my constituents in the on-going fight for liberty, national and state sovereignty, freedom from federal overreach, a moral society, and protection of the principles established by our Founding Fathers in the Constitution of the United States. I will apply these ideals in practical ways for Utahns, with faith-based integrity, reason, and hard work. Read some of my pledges to the people of District 6 here: http://www.corymaloy.com/…/six-pledges-to-the-citizens-of-u…
I hope I have earned your vote -- I humbly ask for your vote. Please call me anytime if you have any questions.
"He is a good man who tries every day to be a better man. He shares your and my conservative values and love for our country and state of Utah. He works hard for the things he believes in."
I want all of our friends, neighbors and residents of Lehi and Saratoga springs to know of my love and support for my husband, Cory. He is the best person to represent us as State House Representative for District 6. He is a man of faith. He is a good man who tries every day to be a better man.
He shares your and my conservative values and love for our country and state of Utah. He works hard for the things he believes in. One of those things is state sovereignty. I feel very strongly that, if (the people of Utah) had control of our lands instead of the federal government, we would be better stewards and reap the many benefits of that stewardship. His stand on education, growth, and federal government overreach align with my concerns for our future and our children’s future.
It is time for us as a people to vote into office men and women who value family and have a moral compass. Cory’s ability to lead, to get others to stay on track and accomplish their goals, and his ability to stay true to his values and principles, have been demonstrated repeatedly both in his professional career, in his involvement in the Republican Party, and in his church callings. I love and support him and encourage you to join me in voting for Cory Maloy on June 28th.

"Cory possesses some of the best qualities of a great leader: He is dependable and does what he says. He isn't a big talker; if anything he minimizes his contribution and acknowledges the efforts of others. He listens without prejudice and involves all sides to find solutions. He is principled and knows that the real power belongs to the people. And he's really smart. He doesn't pretend to know everything, but he works his butt off to find the answers"
I wholeheartedly support and endorse this guy, Cory Maloy, to represent District 6 in the Utah House of Representatives. Cory and I met 4 1/2 years ago when we were running against each other for District 6 chair. Thankfully he won by one vote in the second round. I then ran and became vice-chair working alongside him for the next four years.
Our team was put to the test immediately since the 2010 census had changed most of the precincts and we only had one month to find 16 new precinct chairs and locations for the upcoming caucuses. Cory's leadership was remarkable. We were one of the most organized districts with the largest growth in the county, possibly the state. Our caucus numbers that year were 4-5 times the 2010 caucuses. But we were prepared and managed it well, much thanks to Cory.

"Cory continues to impress me at how connected he is both with individual residents of the district and members of the state legislature. He is able to provide a bridge between state government and our communities, one that is built on years of dedicated service and tireless work."
With the primary election day for Utah House District 6 just around the corner, I feel I need to take the opportunity to give my official endorsement of Cory Maloy. Throughout the campaign season, beginning before our county convention, through today, I have had the chance as both a county delegate and a Lehi resident to meet with, listen to, and vet Cory. He has proven himself time and time again a tried and true constitutional conservative. Cory not only has the professional experience to excel as our representative for the district, he also has the political know-how, background, and connections to truly make a difference and assure that our voices are heard.
Cory continues to impress me at how connected he is both with individual residents of the district and members of the state legislature. He is able to provide a bridge between state government and our communities, one that is built on years of dedicated service and tireless work. Cory’s willingness to talk to individual members of our community on a personal level- either on the phone, over the internet, or in person- never ceases to amaze me. I have come to know Cory as a true patriot, eagerly fighting to maintain our liberties and God-given rights in our schools, with our lands, and within our families. Cory will continue to make our communities and our families a top priority while defending the constitutions of our country and of our state as our representative.
As I have come to know these things about him, it is without question in the best interest of my family and my community that I endorse Cory Maloy for House District 6. I encourage everyone in our district to follow me in casting their vote for Cory on June 28th.
