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.

"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.

"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.

"He [Cory] has extensive experience in working with people, all people, even with varying opinions and perspectives, and I have seen him be a coalition builder."
I am pleased to announce my endorsement and full support of A. Cory Maloy to replace me as the State Representative for the Utah House of Representatives in District 6.
Having served this great district in the House of Representatives for the last four years, I have learned that there are four key characteristics that make a great Representative. 1. Having a sound foundation and knowledge of Constitutional Principles, 2. Continuously Engaging in Effective Communication, 3. Having Political Courage to stand up for what is right, not necessarily what is popular, even at times against your own leadership or party, and 4. Statesman, the lost art of coalition building, using the power of persuasion to build support in order to be effective.
I have known A. Cory Maloy for more than five years. I have worked with him on many issues, and I have seen first hand his effectiveness in working to strengthen our district and work to meet the needs within the Republican Party. He has extensive experience in working with people, all people, even with varying opinions and perspectives, and I have seen him be a coalition builder. I have seen him communicate effectively with the delegates, in rallying their support and efforts. I have seen him stand on principle, even in the face of losing some delegate support because he felt it was the right thing to do. I have also seen him compromise in working to solve difficult problems within the party in order to find solutions that will work. I can truly say that I have seen A. Cory Maloy demonstrate each of the needed principles that will make him an effective Representative in the House.
A. Cory Maloy is the best Candidate to replace me as our Representative in the Utah State House of Representative. Join me in voting for A. Cory Maloythis coming Primary Election on June 28th, and let's make sure that our area continues to have a strong, conservative voice up at the State Capitol.

"Cory passes the litmus test showing conviction to conservative principles"
I fully endorse Cory Maloy as the best republican candidate for the District 6 State House seat. I was involved as a county delegate and was able to meet and vet Cory through the caucus process. He was always available to answer questions and state his positions on various subjects. Cory passes the litmus test showing conviction to conservative principles and will make a great addition to the State Legislature. Cory has a good moral compass that will serve us well as he weighs in on important decisions at the Legislature that will impact us all.

"Maloy is a true conservative Republican who has represented his Party and constituents well. He understands the need for principled representation for his constituents and for the State. I am confident he will do everything he can to fight for liberty and protect the principles established by our Founding Fathers."
It is my fortune to endorse Cory Maloy as the Utah House District 6 Representative. We started this campaign season as competitors, each intent upon fighting the battle for liberty in our own way, and as we did so became great friends. Maloy is a true conservative Republican who has represented his Party and constituents well. He understands the need for principled representation for his constituents and for the State. I am confident he will do everything he can to fight for liberty and protect the principles established by our Founding Fathers as he works for the interests that are best suited for the people of our State, and most importantly he will remain committed to the District as a representative and will return and stand accountable for his positions and votes. I believe that this above all other considerations places him far and above any other candidate. It is this system where we can locally hold accountable our representatives and they will listen that makes the jump between politician and statesman. As we fought together to present ourselves to as many residents of District 6 this is something that we never disagreed with. I believe it is this shared value that was part of the prompting that I received to leave the race and back Cory. I encourage all Republicans to vote for Cory Maloy, no matter what area of District 6 you live in, on June 28th.
--John Morris, Lehi resident and Statesman
Cory’s ability to listen to the issues that affect Utah and put forth valuable, conservative solutions that not only meet the present needs for the State of Utah and the constituents of District 6 but for future generations is precisely what is needed.
His commitment to genuine conservative principles which include facilitating an environment for economic growth, the vigorous preservation and defense of Utahn’s constitutional rights, including the right to keep and bear arms, and ensuring our infrastructure is ready for future growth is why I encourage Utah District 6 constituents to vote for Cory Maloy in the Republican Primary.

I'm grateful for Kristy's eloquent take on our Republic. She is spot on. I am also grateful for her support. This post can be found on her Facebook page here.
As a stay at home mom I spend a lot of time and energy focused on young children and taking care of them. My efforts are to make my house into a home, to make dinner for my family to eat, to read stories to my daughter, or to drive the carpool to activities. Part of my job is to watch out for the best interests of my family. Too many times I have not engaged in the political process, not because I didn’t care but because it wasn’t the right season for me.
This year is different. One of my priorities is getting more engaged in the political process. Why? As a country we face some serious troubles. I believe it is the responsibility of current leaders to create a better life for future generations, and to educate the younger generation in what our founders had as a vision for this great nation. We are dealing with a federal government that is massive. We need leaders who will spend less, who want the federal government to have less power, less control, and less influence on the lives of citizens.
In this election year, we are not only voting for the next president, but we have state and local elections that are even more important. Local elections choose local leadership, which have a greater impact on me personally. I can choose to pass a bond that will build a new school near my house. I can choose the person I want to represent me at the national level. My influence and my vote mean more on the local level.
So what’s going on at the local level? This year in Utah, something new is happening. I recently learned about SB54 or Count My Vote. Why is this important?
The founding fathers wisely constructed this nation as a representative republic. Remember that great story about Benjamin Franklin? “The deliberations of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 were held in strict secrecy. Consequently, anxious citizens gathered outside Independence Hall when the proceedings ended in order to learn what had been produced behind closed doors. The answer was provided immediately. A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.” (http://www.ourrepubliconline.com/Author/21)
The United States is not a democracy. What’s the difference? In a democracy leaders are directly elected by the people but in a representative republic we select individuals to represent us as a community. These individuals meet and question candidates about the issues. These delegates research the issues that are most important to the community, working to select a candidate that will reflect the best interest of the community.
I read a great article that explained this very clearly. Here are the parts that had the biggest impact on me: “Indirect Election. The logic of the representative principle could be carried even, further, as the Scottish philosopher David Hume had pointed out. If the people were likely to elect a moral superior as a representative, then why not call the elected representatives together and allow them to elect a representative of their own—who was likely to be still more virtuous? With each ascending tier of representation, there would be a refining process at work. Men (and women) of wider and wider reputation—and broader and broader outlook—would thus automatically be vested with the greatest authority. And they would be even further distanced from the passions of the multitude. [From Fox & Pope, American Heritage, pp 128-129, emphasis added]
Fox & Pope further illustrate the practical application of this principle…
(James) Madison and his colleagues discussed numerous ways to apply the principles of representation and indirect election in the proposed Constitution. The most notable was in the electoral college. Presidential electors would be chosen by the people solely on the basis of individual merit. These representatives would then convene and cast ballots of their own to elect the President and Vice President. The system thus featured two tiers of representation—a double refining process—while at the same time short-circuiting patronage. [From Fox & Pope, American Heritage, pp 128-129, emphasis added]
Madison, the primary pen of the Constitution, saw the wisdom of a multi-tiered vetting process of representative selection. This process of the People vetting candidates through multi-tiered elections has an inherent user-friendliness, transparency, and accountability.
Within the fundamentals of election process—more IS better! (The more tiers, the more scrutinized the candidate.)” http://ucrp.org/party-nominee-strength-is-the-participation-of-the-people/
My neighbors in Traverse Mountain have seen many signs for Mike Brenny. He lives here and is well liked. My kids go to school with his kids. However, I don’t think he is the best person to represent our district. He was a registered Democrat in Salt Lake County in 2010, but this year in January he registered as a Republican. I’m not sure that he represents my conservative values. Mike went around the caucus and chose to collect signatures, which works this year because of SB54.
One candidate I’ve chosen to support is Cory Maloy. He worked through the system as it was originally established. He has been vetted by those representatives we selected at our local caucuses. I appreciate his background and leadership within the Republican party. Cory is conservative both fiscally and socially. On a personal note, I met him and I liked him. I met his wife and I respect her as well. When I emailed him, he replied. He even called me on the phone to see if I had further questions. I appreciate his position on second amendment rights. I agree with him that transportation and education are key issues in the growing Lehi area. He said, “The Utah Legislature must focus on long-term critical projects that accommodate this growth: specifically in critical areas of transportation, water supply, air pollution, and education.” http://www.corymaloy.com/issues.html
It’s important to support those representatives who have fought to preserve the principles established by our founders so many generations ago. It’s important to vote. The strength of a republic is based on citizens who care. I love this land and the freedoms we enjoy. God bless America.
