I had the opportunity to travel to Washington DC last week. The state legislators and county commissioners were invited to the White House to visit with elected officials and staff. What an amazing chance to talk with our national leaders about the needs, issues, and concerns in our state.
We had the opportunity to hear from the Vice President Mike Pence; Senators Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee; and Congressmen Rob Bishop and John Curtis. I was particularly impressed with our Vice President, and his humble plea that we pray for our great nation.
We met with the Department of Agriculture Deputy Secretary. As a group, we discussed several key issues:
White House Deputy Directors of Senate Affairs talked with us about upcoming Senate bills:
The Department of Interior Deputy Director talked with us about a few issues as well:
Next up was the Department of Labor:
We also heard from the Trump Administration on the grants they are helping with in Utah. Throw in a personal tour of the US Capitol Building from Congressman John Curtis, and it was a very eventful two days in Washington. I am so impressed with our current administration for reaching out to our local and state government leaders to see what and where they can help us. I’m thankful that they are trying to listen to our voice, understand our needs, and help when and where possible.
This is just a quick summary, if you have questions, please reach out to me, I’m always happy to listen. Thanks again for your trust and support, my family and I so appreciate it.
