I’d like to start out our weekly update by thanking you for reading. Once again, thanks to the voters of District 53 for giving Logan the opportunity to represent you. And thanks to all those who participated in Logan’s survey, too. I know that Logan appreciates it, and he’s using that information to inform the decisions he makes as your representative.
The Morgan High student body officers paid a visit to the Capitol on Friday, and they sat on the floor with Logan. It’s always great to see young people learning about how the legislative process works firsthand. The Capitol building was also treated to a performance from Morgan High School’s Ovation! Choir. They really did a fantastic job. On Tuesday, Logan and his daughter Charlotte had a great time hanging out together at the Capitol.
Here’s a brief overview of what’s been going on at the Capitol this week: On Monday the legislature was not in session in observance of President’s Day. On Tuesday Council for America came to the Capitol. Council for America is made up of 9,000 law enforcement officers, retired military officers, pastors, coaches, and community leaders. They met at the Capitol to discuss concerns over youth readiness for adulthood and declining eligibility for military service.
Also on Tuesday Rep. Steve Eliason along with the Utah Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention held a press conference to raise awareness about suicide prevention for military personnel and civilians. Shoes and combat boots, provided by Deseret Industries and the National Guard, were lined up on the Capitol steps to represent the more than 600 Utah lives lost to suicide last year.
On Friday House Speaker Greg Hughes, and Senate President Wayne Niederhauser met with Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski, Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams, and Murray Mayor Ted Eyre met to address the problem of homelessness.
