I don't have major contacts, but Salt Lake County Mayoral candidate Peter
Corroon is Howard Dean's cousin and I may be able to make contact with him
after the election. (I hope he wins.) or I can try to avoid missing the
next DeanforAmerica meetup in SLC. (Peter is having a really strange
election here. His opponent dropped out of the race at the last minute due
to legal problems and the Republicans are trying a little less than honest
tactics to get a new opponent on the ballot at the last minute - a real
headache with punch cards for the election officials.)

Any of us could attend DeanforAmerica meetups by signing up at meetup.com.

I need a sales pitch and more info. and a specific request before I can
ask for a meeting with Peter. I have spoken personally with Peter Corroon
before and he did say he would meet with me when I was next in Utah about
my other project (that I should be working on) to get a new
info-coordinating web site up for progressives, but I never got around to
calling him.
