Dear Friends:

Unfortunately, the Legislative Town Hall Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, January 20th at Holladay City Hall has been cancelled.

In its place will be a candlelight vigil to honor the life and service of Officer Doug Barney, who gave his life protecting our citizens. Instead of politics, I believe it should be a night to show our respect to a beloved fallen officer, as well as to honor the injured officer, Jon Richey, who valiantly tried to save his fellow officer.

The candlelight vigil, sponsored by the Salt Lake Valley Law Enforcement Association, and hosted by the City of Holladay and the Unified Police Officers of the Holladay Precinct, will be directly behind Holladay City Hall on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. I invite the public to attend, to show their respect to Officer Barney's family, his law enforcement family, and to the countless people who benefitted from his devoted service.

Although we will not be meeting Wednesday night, I still want to hear from you about upcoming legislative issues and ask that you contact me at: or 801-889-7849.
