Public has opportunity to meet personally with legislators

If a person wants to give input about what is going on in government, or at least hear about it, they can attend the Breakfast with Legislators event each Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. in the Cache County Office Building in Logan. State legislators are there that represent Cache County, both state representatives and state senators. Andy Rasmussen, co-host of KVNU’s For The People, says, “These legislators tell the people what is taking place in the legislative session both at large and in the valley.” Sometimes after the meeting a person can find the opportunity to talk to a legislator individually and ask questions. The meetings run approximately an hour and a small continental breakfast is provided. “This is a way to get people engaged civically in their government,” Rasmussen continues. “These people represent them. If you have any issues on anything going on, state, funding, anything you have a concern over, these are the people you need to talk to.” The legislative session lasts for six weeks in Utah and it is already three weeks into the session. This means that there are only three weeks left of the Breakfast with Legislators. Rasmussen says it is a great opportunity to take children and let them learn a little about government or for scouts to come and fulfill parts of merit badges. This is people’s opportunity to participate in government.
