Candidate for Salt Lake City Council District 3 derekdyer.com He has a pretty good endorsement from the Salt Lake County Democrats. Problem with that is it's a faceless endorsement that's watered down by the fact that obviously not all of the County Democrats support him. The real strength of this endorsement is the possibility that Derek can leverage the party infrastructure into his campaign. The question remains, with so many candidates in a non- affiliated race, can the County Democrats turn out enough high profile endorsements and enough foot soldiers to get the job done when many of the active members will committ to other candidates? He'll get all the voter lists he needs out of the county party, but he really needs people. On another note: The Salt Lake County Democrats need a website.
