Legislators Meet with Chamber of Commerce

Last year our UniServ joined the Weber Chamber of Commerce with the goal of representing our teachers in the discussion of public ed funding. We had our Legislative Breakfast last Tuesday and heard from Rep. Brad Dee (Majority Whip of the House). I was gratified to hear him say that businesses' number one request when thinking of moving to Utah is "Where are the good schools?". He also reported that the budget deficit will come to about $700 million ( a little bit less than the $850 Million we have been hearing). He is in a position of leadership and it is important that he represents our interests here in Weber County. Several other legislators were in attendance: Ryan Wilcox, Dist. 7 representative, Sen. Jenkins, Sen. Christensen, and Sen. Jon Greiner.

Our meetings will continue in January when the session begins. We will also be meeting at the legislature.
