United Utah Party nominates Tim Zeidner in 3rd Congressional District Payson
UTAH COUNTY — July 17, at the Pro- vo City Library, the United Utah Party gathered to nominate a replacement for Melanie McCoard, who was stepping down as the UUP candidate for US Con- gress in the Third Congressional District due to health concerns.
“This was our first contested race,” said Richard Davis, the United Utah Par- ty Chair. “Three fine candidates stepped forward, and Tim Zeidner won on the first ballot.”
“I’m thrilled to be in this race and help move this party forward,” Zeidner said. “The principles of the United Utah Party represent the majority of the people of Utah, and it's only a matter of times before we reach critical mass.”
Zeidner serves as the Director of Re- search and Evaluation at the Provo Mis- sionary Training Center for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He and his wife, Annalee, are the parents of five children.
Zeidner will face popular incum- bent Rep. John Curtis and democratic nominee James Singer in the November election.
