October Newsletter


Interim is still in full swing each month with the session starting in January we have had a lot to do. From working on future legislation and redistricting we have been in meetings after meetings. Even with the busy schedule, it was great to watch our community come together this last month for our 9/11 20th anniversary day of service. We are very fortunate to live in a community that pulls together during these times regardless of our differences.

Fire Prevention Week


We are in the middle of fire safety week and the theme this year is to Learn the Sounds of Safety. Smoke alarms have played a leading role in reducing fire death rates over the past 40 years by 55%. Most home fire deaths happen because the home either didn't have fire alarms or the alarms were not working. 
An important thing you can do to make sure that your fire alarms, as well as CO2 detectors, are working properly is to test them monthly. Make sure the batteries are working. If your alarms are over 10 years they should be replaced.

Redistricting Utah

Next month we will be called into a special session with a focus on voting for the new maps for our communities. I know that everyone in the Legislature takes this very seriously. I really hope that you make your voice heard during this time. What you think matters. The Legislative Redistricting Committee is still holding public hearings now until Nov. 10th all across the state. You can find a full list of meeting schedules at redistricting.utah.gov. You can also get involved with Utah's new Independent Redistricting Commission by clicking the button below. Make sure to reach out to your Legislators and make your voice heard. Let them know how you want your communities drawn and what recommendations you would like them to consider.
