This morning, United Way of Salt Lake hosted our annual Legislative Preview Breakfast at the Grand America Hotel.  It was wonderful to see the largest attendance we have had yet!  We wanted to thank everyone who participated in making this event a great success.

Thank you so much to our speakers and pannel: Governor Gary R. Herbert, Speaker Rebecca D. Lockhart, Representative Jennifer M. Seelig, Senator Lyle W. Hillyard, Senator Patricia W. Jones, Greg Hardy and Michael Zody.  We appreciate all of you so much for being a part of this event.

Additionally, a great big thank you to everyone on the United Way of Salt Lake staff; whether you helped with set up, took questions from the audience, or were behind the scenes!  A special thanks to Vicki Larsen, Events Director and Elizabeth Garbe, Public Policy Director, for all of their planning and attention to detail.  Also, thanks to Deborah Bayle and Rebecca Dutson for participating in the program.  It takes a great staff to pull off a great event!

Also, a very warm and gracious thank you to our sponsor, Chevron, who made this breakfast possible.

Please be sure to join us by advocating during this year’s legislative session!  Sign up for advocacy alerts on our website and follow the conversation on Twitter (#utleg & #utpol) and Facebook.
