Visit With the Utah National Guard!
Thursday I was able to be part of a group who visited with, and helped deliver water, sports drinks, treats, thanks and smiles (behind masks) to the men and women of the Utah National Guard. Special thanks to Jennie Taylor, who organized the delivery effort. She is the widow of Major Brent Taylor, who was killed while serving in Afghanistan.
Thanks to all these men and women who continually stand ready to answer the call of duty.

Congratulations to These Highly Effective Teachers!
The legislature has set up a couple of programs that encourages teachers to teach at Title 1 schools (there are several Title 1 schools within West Valley). One program tracks "growth" among students (along with other measures) and awards teachers whose students show a high degree of growth. I was fortunate to visit these teachers, who live within District 33, and help deliver their bonus checks with Granite School District administration. Congratulations!

"Awesome and Amazing" Granger HS PTA President!
For the last year my wife Becky has served as the Granger High School PTA President. A couple weeks ago this sign showed up on our lawn. She is indeed “Awesome and Amazing.” Thanks Granger High School administration, teachers and students for all the great work you do!

NAACP / Law Enforcement Press Conference
Friday I attended in support a press conference put together by the NAACP. The NAACP, elected leaders and law enforcement all announced at the press conference meaningful reforms and legislation that can be accomplished in Utah. Thanks so much to those who are engaged in the process. Thanks to Jeanetta Williams (NAACP Salt Lake President), and to law enforcement, for coming together and discussing how we can do better.

Thank you Utah!
I addressed in a previous email the protests that we have seen over the last several days. I echo the words of my friend and colleague Rep. Sandra Hollins (African-American member of the legislature), along with those of Salt Lake City Mayor Mendenhall and Governor Herbert. There needs to be change. There needs to be a meaningful and real conversation about race and police relations. What happened in Minneapolis was horrific. We encourage peaceful protests. Thank you so much to those who helped to stop the violence and property damage. Violence and property damage distracts from the legitimate message.
One of the things that helped my spirits was the number of people who wanted to help. Immediately. This video emerged last Sunday morning. It didn't take long for Utahns to kick in to help. Click on the following to see the video:

First, I hope that you and your family are safe. Compared to other States, Utah’s numbers are looking relatively good. As of Friday, May 1, the Utah Department of Health has reported 4,828 positive cases, 403 hospitalizations, and 46 deaths. In all, Utah has administered 112,558 total tests. The progress we have made as a state is encouraging, but we all must continue to do our part to slow the spread, even as businesses reopen and activities resume.

I'm so proud of the way our local communities and state have stepped up with so many willing to do their part in these uncommon circumstances. While we are all adjusting to the disruption in our routines, we have shown remarkable cooperation and care for one another. I am confident the trouble will pass, and we can get back to normal in short order.
I hope to serve as a resource to anyone who has questions about what to do, and where to go if you need help. One of the challenges I have seen is there is SO MUCH information, it's easy to feel overwhelmed.Click on the link above to see the TOP TEN Coronavirus Questions and Answers!
