The Utah Republican Party has named a new executive director.
GOP Chairman Bruce Hough said Mark Emerson, a seasoned Republican campaigner, will replace Joe Waldholz, who resigned to manage the campaign of his wife, Enid Greene-Waldholz, who has announced her candidacy for the 2nd Congressional District seat.Greene was defeated by Democrat Karen Shepherd in 1992.
"We're very pleased to have Mark on board," Hough said. "He brings excellent campaign experience and enthusiasm to the job."
Emerson, a former advertising and sales executive for TCI Cablevision, said the GOP's prime goals this year will be the re-election of three-term Sen. Orrin Hatch and Rep. Jim Hansen, who is seeking his eighth term as representative from the 1st District.
He also targets wins in the already predominantly Republican Utah Legislature.
"Moreover, in 1994 the state Republican party will work tirelessly to retake the 2nd and 3rd Congressional district seats and have fiscally responsible Republicans represent Utah," he said. Shepherd is in her first term in the 2nd District. Rep. Bill Orton, a conservative Democrat, is seeking his third term in the 3rd District.
