Senior James Colling has spent the past five months volunteering for the Utah Republican Party, working as an advisor for local and state campaigns.
“The candidates I work with are all outstanding and are genuine public servants,” James said. “They're running to represent the people and to make sure that the citizens of Utah have a voice on the Hill.”
“I don't agree on all issues with my candidates, but I appreciate their efforts at a pragmatic approach to being moderate candidates in an increasingly polarized political climate.”
Former Judge Memorial student Chase Winder is someone who James is working with. He is a candidate running for Senate District 2 which Judge lies in along with many students and faculty members.
“Chase Winder is an extremely progressive and well rounded candidate. He works for everyone to have a seat at the table in the Utah legislature. He is also a University of Utah and Westminster (MBA) alum.”
James’s main goal is to help candidates to find the best and most efficient ways to market themselves to a large and diverse population of constituents. He has working in areas such as downtown Salt Lake City, Sugarhouse, South Salt Lake, and Emigration.
“I have always had great pride and a sense of gratitude for our country, and for the liberties that we are afforded by living in this great nation.”
