I have called Utah home my entire life and have lived in the Sugar House area for about 11 years. I have been married for 5 years; have 3 incredible dogs and a rambunctious little cat. I received my Bachelor degree in Biology at Westminster College and a Masters degree in Public Health at the University of Utah. I am currently an Epidemiologist with the Utah Department of Health. I am the Precinct Chair for SLC 112 and the chair of the Public Employee Caucus with the Salt Lake County Democratic Party. Growing up in Utah has been a great experience and I look forward to serving as the newly elected Salt Lake County Democratic Party Secretary.
Having first voted for George McGovern in 1972, Alan comes from a proud Democrat family. He has always espoused Democratic values in caring for his fellow man. He strives to elect more Democrats in Salt Lake County and the state of Utah.
After college, Alan taught school in Nebraska for two years. Upon leaving the teaching profession, he has been involved in the insurance industry for the past 36 years.
He became more involved in Utah politics in the late 1990’s and has worked on several campaigns since then. He ran for Salt Lake County Democrat Party Treasurer in 2009, and he ran for Midvale City Council in 2011.
Alan was transferred to Utah in 1978. Although Nebraska/Iowa are still “home”, Utah is his adopted home and a place he loves. He and his partner, Kyle, live in Midvale with their 4-legged “daughter”, Bhani.
La Vonne Maloney
La Vonne started her career with IBM in 1976 as the first woman salesman in Montana. IBM moved her to Minnesota, the East Coast, then Paris, then out to California and ended her corporate life in Connecticut (all ‘Blue’ states….). After her husband, Ron Havener, retired early from IBM in 1992, she decided to join him a year later. A decision to take ‘time over money’ has led to 20 years of being very good at being retired; traveling for months at a time in a 1987 Volkswagon Vanagon. After moving to deep red Utah in 1995, she spent many years believing that her vote didn’t count and there was nothing that she could do about it. After sitting through the 2008 election and seeing Democrats starting to make a difference here in Utah, she got involved both with OFA as well as local candidates, culminating in a “Farmer’s Market Meet the Candidates” event with 24 state, county and local candidates. She feels that being a Democrat means understanding that “We are all in this together”. Purple (a great mix of blue and red) is her favorite color.
La Vonne received a degree in Economics, Business Administration and Vocal Performance at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, MT.
Jandalynn “Jandy” Stelter jumped into politics in 2000 as a volunteer for the Salazar boys (former Congressman John & Ken the 50th US Secretary of the Interior). Since moving to UT in 2010 she has held several offices in her legislative district. Jandy also serves on the Executive Board of the Utah Stonewall Democrats. Being a National Delegate to the 1012 DNC was a highlight for Jandy. Nominating President Barack Obama on behalf of Utahans for a second term as POTUS was a thrill and honor.
Jandy earned a Master’s degree in Special Education from Adams State University in CO and currently teaches Special Education in North Salt Lake. Jandy’s passion for equality, philanthropy, education, the environment and international travel take up all her free time.
