Why the Republican Party Must Return to its Core Values

November 1, 2021 – Ally Isom wants Republican women in Weber County to know why she is running for US Senate in 2022. She said the concerns facing Utah’s families will only be solved if our elected leaders get back to the core principles embraced by Lincoln. Ally is the candidate who can make this happen.

“When I started campaigning I put pennies back in my wallet as a symbol.” Ally said.  “Whose on the penny? Abraham Lincoln – symbolic for our party and also symbolic for a number of principles.  He called our Republic an ‘unfinished business – an unfinished work.’ And he left it to us to see the legacy through. That is why I am running. I am running to see through the legacy of Lincoln and the legacy and core principles of the Republican party,” she said.

Ally listed the core GOP principles she believes in:

  • Individual Freedom
  • Limited Government
  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • Free Markets
  • Low Taxes

“I feel our party is at a crossroads,” Ally said.  “We’ve lost our focus. We’ve forgotten what it’s all about. This is not a game. This is not a survival exercise. It’s not about culture wars. It’s not about personalities. It’s these core principles,” she said.

When Ally spoke of the core principle of  fiscal responsibility, Ally highlighted the ever-growing national debt

“Our national debt is out of control! Why does the word trillion just roll off our tongues now? We should be abhorred at the legacy we are leaving our children, our grandchildren and our great grandchildren,” she said.

Ally has spent 25 years using a principled approach to solve hard problems. She  worked in private, nonprofit and public sectors. Her unique perspective makes her the right kind of leader for Utah. A leader who knows how to listen and connect with people from diverse backgrounds. 

“I understand what matters most to people, across segments, across cultures, across divides,” said Ally.

Ally pledges to take a Utah mindset with her to Washington DC. A mindset that grows stronger as she spends time with everyday Utahns across the state. 

“I have pledged to walk a mile in every Utah city, town and community. Because I don’t believe you can represent people you don’t know or places you’ve never been, ” Ally said. “I’ve visited 66 Communities since August. And I’m not done yet. I’m just getting started.”

What issues concern Utahns? Water, affordable healthcare, affordable housing and smart growth. Ally pledges to be a leader who is “in touch” with everyday Utahns, and who will bring stakeholders to the table to find real solutions for these difficult challenges. 

Ally was invited by Lorraine Brown, President of the Weber County Republican Women, to speak at their Meet the Candidates event. The event was held at the Weber County Ice Sheet on the Campus of Weber State University, in Ogden, Utah.
