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
Topic for May: Medicinal use of marijuana/cannabis
James Davis, MD – Board of Health, Bear River Health Department
Tony Baird, JD – Prosecuting attorney, Cache County Attorney’s office
Laura Warburton – Huntsville, Utah - advocate for medicinal use of cannabis extract high in CBD for treatment of epilepsy.
LeGrand Belnap, MD – Surgeon from SLC area and medicinal cannabis advocate
Moderator: Andy Rasmussen, Logan, Utah
I hope you will be able to attend and participate.
I am honored and humbled to serve as your representative in the Utah House of Representatives. I take this responsibility very seriously and will continue to do the best that I can to understand issues that are important to the citizens of Cache County and the great State of Utah.
Thank you for you support.

Pizza & Politics: "Utah Priorities: A Look at Voters and Voting"
April 26, 2016, 3:00pm - April 26, 2016, 4:00pm
Distance Education Room 013
We're excited to host Utah Foundation, an analytical public policy think tank, as they present their Utah Priorities Project voter survey, showing the top ten list of Utah voters' concerns, and how those concerns will impact our elected officials and campaigns this year.
The top ten list is based on polling done for Utah Foundation by Dan Jones and Associates, which is significantly different than the concerns expressed by voters in 2012, the last time Utah Foundation conducted the project.
The event will be broadcasted from the Distance Education building to USU campuses in Brigham City, Tooele, Roosevelt, Vernal, Moab, and Price.
Hey everyone! Come check out this Pizza & Politics event tomorrow! ...
Pizza & Politics: "Immigration Reform - The Role of Congress vs. The President" with Angela Morrison
April 20, 2016, 5:30pm - April 20, 2016, 6:30pm
Merrill-Cazier Library 101
We're excited to have Angela Morrison, immigration law expert and professor at Texas A&M, speak at Utah State about one of the top issues facing the nation: immigration reform. With a career of experience on this issue, Angela's remarks will focus on the sometimes-conflicting roles of Congress and the president on immigration policy, as well as the upcoming immigration case before the Supreme Court (United States v. Texas) regarding the President's immigration program announced late 2014.
Before teaching as an associate law professor at Texas A&M, Professor Morrison taught at the UNLV School of Law as a visiting assistant professor. She was previously the Legal Director of the Nevada Immigrant Resource Project at UNLV, providing direct legal representation to noncitizen victims of crime and conducting outreach on immigration-‐related issues. Prior to directing NIRP, Professor Morrison worked for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and also clerked for Judge Phillip Pro of the U.S. District Court of the District of Nevada. She received her J.D. from the William S. Boyd School of Law, where she was the editor-in-chief of the Nevada Law Journal.
