Join Americans for Prosperity this Saturday for our Day of Action to make sure legislators know their vote matters and their constituents are watching. This past legislative session lawmakers had the chance to role back harmful regulations on small businesses, but some voted not to. We’ll be contacting Utahns to let them know about this egregious vote and who they should contact to make their voice heard. You’re needed to make a difference. Here are the details. We’ll see you there:
Location: 140 N. Main St. Kaysville, UT 84037
Date: Saturday, June 4th
Time: 9 AM – 5 PM, come any time for as long as you’d like.
Why: To help Utahns contact their legislator to ask them to repeal big government regulations on small businesses.
Breakfast and lunch are provided
Word from Rep. Ed Redd:
"Without an opponent in the Primary or General Elections, typical election-year opportunities for public debate and discussion regarding state government and public policies are somewhat limited. To mitigate this risk of potentially low public participation in the political process, I have joined with other legislators representing Cache County in sponsoring organized monthly town hall meetings.
During this upcoming summer and fall, we will hold at least one town hall meeting per month. Each meeting will be dedicated to a specific subject or problem that will likely be worked on during the 2017 General Session of the Utah Legislature. The format for most of these town-hall meetings will be a moderated panel discussion/debate consisting of several panelists with different perspectives. Each panelist will give a short presentation and then town hall participants may ask questions and listen to responses from diverse points of view regarding the subject at hand.
The first of these Town Hall meetings will be held at the Historic Cache County Courthouse, 199 N Main Street in Logan.
Time: Thursday May 19, 2016 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
