Candidate for Party Chair
My name is Edward Schwartz and I would like to serve as the next Chairperson of the Utah Democratic Party. Since living in Utah I have been active with the Democratic Party, first serving as a Delegate and then running for local office in a Cottonwood Heights City Council race where I came within 70 Votes of winning against a 3-term Republican.
Most recently, in the 2016 election, I was the campaign manager for Stephen Tryon in his bid to unseat Congressman Jason Chaffetz. Stephen endorses my bid to be the Chairperson of the Utah Democratic Party.
I have over 25 years of executive level business experience in postsecondary education and that combined with my political activism enables me to understand what is required as a leader to communicate a vision, unite the diverse elements of our party, and mobilize people to achieve political success in order to win elections. www.electedschwartz.com
