Utah Politicians Check Partisanship at the Door on Access Utah Wednesday

Oct 2, 2012

As the long election season winds down, we’re going to talk politics again, this time with a twist.  We’ll ask several prominent Utah politicians and commentators to check partisan fights at the door share the one or two core political beliefs that motivate them.  Is there an author or thinker who has had an influence on them?  What is their foundational political philosophy?  

We’ll also ask each guest to reach across the aisle and tell us at least one foundational belief on the other side that they can understand as powerful and valid, though they may not subscribe to it themselves.  

We’ll ask you to answer these same questions by email or phone. Please join us at upraccess@gmail.com or 1-800-826-1495.
