BigNews.Biz - May 06,2012 - Lee's Mobile Office Visits All 29 Counties
Last week, Senator Mike Lee’s Mobile Office completed the first round of its visits to towns and cities in each county in the state of Utah. The Mobile Office is run by Senator Lee’s Community Outreach Director, D. Gary Beck, CAPT, USCG (Ret), and it allows the senator to provide Utahns who might not otherwise be able to interact with him or his staff in the Salt Lake City, St. George or Washington D.C. offices a way to do so in or near their local communities throughout Utah. Since its creation late last year, the Mobile Office has visited 54 cities and towns, and has provided service to 599 constituents.
“The Mobile Office has been tremendously successful, and I am very proud to say that it has made stops in every single county in Utah,” said Senator Lee. “Our goal was to do so within a year and we did it within six months. It’s important that citizens in every part of the state have the opportunity to voice their issues without having to drive hundreds of miles.
“Open access to elected officials is a fundamentally necessary part of our constitutional republic, and the Mobile Office greatly increases that access for the citizens of this state. I look forward to once again sending the office to every county in Utah over the next six months.”
Below is a list of just a few of the stops the Mobile Office has made:
Thursday, November 3: Roosevelt, Duchesne County
Tuesday, November 15: Green River, Emery County
Thursday, November 17: Blanding, San Juan County
Thursday December 1: Brigham City, Box Elder County
Wednesday, December 7: Farmington, Davis County
