Bruce Funk, who served as Emery County Clerk for 23 years, will be appearing in his first public meeting in Utah to discuss the problems he discovered, and sought to resolve, with the Diebold voting machines in Emery County and his subsequent experiences arising from that. Bruce was locked out of his office this spring after action by county commissioners following an on-site intervention by State election officials accompanied by Diebold representatives.
His experiences have crucial relevance to the integrity of the entire voting process in Utah, as well as nationally, and should be known by all citizens who expect honesty, accountability, and justice from their government. Bruce has discussed this issue on both national and local radio programs and has been quoted frequently in the news.
Joycelynn Straight is an Election Integrity Advocate and a member of Utah VOTE. She has researched election integrity issues for a number of years and, since last October, has devoted her attention to it, full-time. Joycelynn was a featured speaker on election integrity issues at a recent meeting of the Agnes Kehoe Progressive Alliance in Washington State. Tonight, she will provide insight into various aspects of Utah's election processes, at both the state and county levels.
Bruce and Joycelynn will be speaking at 7:00 p.m., at the Salt Lake Community College, Redwood Campus (4600 South Redwood Road), Student Center in the 'Oak Room'. You are highly encouraged to attend.
This special appearance is sponsored by the Utah Eagle Forum Conservatives (a youth group) and by the Skousen Group (members of the late Dr. Skousen's seminars on the U.S. Constitution.)
