October 23, 2021 – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ally Isom was honored to address delegates at the Utah Federation of Republican Women (UFRW) biennial convention Saturday, which is celebrating 80 great years of leadership.
In attendance were many strong and capable Republican women who lead with distinction at all levels of government. An overarching theme of the convention was the need to recruit, inspire, and train Republican women to lead out with confidence and civility in their communities.
For 25 years, Ally has helped build and strengthen the Republican Party and encouraged good women and men to get off the sidelines and run for office. Now, it is her turn to be the candidate. She recently launched her bid for the U.S. Senate and is running to bring humanity back to our politics and do more for Utah.
In her speech to the delegates, Ally honored one of her role models, Carol Nixon, who was the first female Chief of Staff to serve in the Utah Governor’s Office. Her career inspired Ally, who served as Deputy Chief of Staff to longtime Governor Gary Herbert from 2010-2013 and spent eight years working in state government.
During the event, which was hosted at This is the Place Heritage Park, UFRW delegates elected a new president, Kari Malkovich, and new board members and honored outgoing president LaRene Cox. Many past leaders were also recognized.
The Republican Women Lead PAC also hosted a panel discussion about helping Utah women become politically engaged. Viable solutions aimed at helping Utah families and communities can only be reached when women are at the table, they said. And the data shows they are correct.
Women bring a unique perspective to the conversation, and can tackle tough issues while creating unity and understanding.
All the more reason to elect Ally Isom.
