I would like to invite you to join me at a Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, February 12, at 12:00 noon at the Eddie P. Mayne Kearns Senior Center located at 4851 West 4715 South in Kearns. I want the benefit of your knowledge and experience as I make choices on behalf of the voters in our community.
At the meeting, I want to share what I have learned to date in the Legislature Session. However, I want to spend most of the time receiving your input.
