Publisher’s Note: Larry Meyers has a long and distinguished history of service to Washington County, the State of Utah, and the Utah Republican Party. He is a staunch advocate for Constitutional principles, the proper role of government, and the principles of freedom and liberty found in that document and the Bill of Rights. I look forward to being represented by someone who shares my values and my standards. I am proud to fully endorse his candidacy for Senator of our great State. – Ed Wallace
St. George attorney Larry Meyers has announced that he will seek the Utah Republican Party nomination for the US Senate, for the seat held by Senator Orrin Hatch, in 2018. “It’s time for a fresh face in the Senate,” Meyers said. “We need someone who represents the working class, with traditional values. I will be a strong voice supporting President Trump’s agenda and fighting for the people of Utah, rather than for the rich and powerful.”
Meyers is a graduate of Brigham Young University and the BYU Law School and previously worked as a prosecuting attorney in Washington County. As the former chairman of the Southwestern Special Service District, he has experience in balancing budgets and providing local community services. Meyers has also served as a Republican county party officer and state central committee member, as well as being elected as a Utah GOP National Delegate in 2008 and 2016.
“My top priorities are securing our borders, cleaning up scandal-plagued federal agencies (such as the BLM and the FBI), cutting spending, balancing the budget, defunding Planned Parenthood, eliminating Common Core, and returning Utah’s public lands back to the State of Utah,” Meyers declared.
His Platform: “I WILL STAND FOR CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPLES”
Constitutional Government: America faces major threats to freedom in all three branches of our federal government. I support a return to limited government under the Constitution, cutting spending and taxes, and returning power to the States and the people.
Individual Liberty: America was founded on the self-evident truth that all people are endowed by God with the rights to life, liberty, and property. The proper role of government is to protect these rights, so the people can govern themselves. I will defend our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms and fight to stop NSA spying in violation of the 4th Amendment.
Education: Parents should control their children’s education through school choice options at the local level. I oppose Common Core and will work to defund it and to eliminate the federal Department of Education.
Illegal Immigration: I support securing our borders and enforcing our laws. People must be accountable for their illegal actions. Giving legal status to illegal aliens is wrong because it rewards law breaking, is unfair to those trying to come here legally, encourages more illegal immigration, and is the first step to having millions more Democrat voters. Unlike the incumbent, I will oppose any form of amnesty for those who have entered or remained in our nation illegally. They should return home and apply to return legally.
National Defense: I support a strong national defense, in the tradition of President Ronald Reagan, and a foreign policy of non-interventionism, as established by President George Washington. Our military must be strong enough to deter all threats, but we would stay out of foreign wars, unless waged in defense of our nation and citizens.
Public Lands and Energy: I will fight for the return of our public lands to State and private ownership. I support multiple uses of our public lands and will oppose restrictions on drilling and other energy development. We can solve our economic problems by opening up our lands to energy development.
Sound Money: America faces a financial collapse if we continue to base our economy on fiat money. We must return to a currency backed by gold or silver. I support auditing the Federal Reserve.
Religious Freedom & Values: I support traditional marriage and oppose the homosexual agenda. I support the right to life and overturning Roe v. Wade. I support public prayer, public displays of faith in God, and the right of religious people to participate in government.
