I had the great honor to participate in an ‘ava ceremony at the home of some amazing District 33 residents!
The ‘ava ceremony is an ancient Samoan ritual that is performed at the beginning of all important services and gatherings. Typically led by the high chief of the hosting village, the ceremony begins with words of welcome as the participants sit cross-legged on the floor in a circle or semicircle. The proceedings include the preparation and consumption of an ‘ava drink.
Thank you. It is great to have their support!

Free school supplies for Stansbury Elementary!
Many students within District 33 attend Stansbury Elementary. Friday I was able to help deliver hundreds of backpacks, notebooks and other school supplies in preparation for the first day of school (Monday). Glad I was able to help! These are soooooo needed.
And thanks to Intercap Lending for sponsoring the event and purchasing the back-to-school supplies.

We obviously still have a ways to go, but this is incredibly encouraging. Utah's unemployment rate dropped from 8.6% to 5.1% between May and June. For context, this is the second lowest unemployment rate in the country.
If you need help finding a job, or need unemployment benefits, you can apply for both at jobs.utah.gov.

I have received several messages regarding the recent incident at Peachwood Park.
I have been in contact with the City and the Police Department about ways we can improve the safety in this area. Tonight I received the following statement from Chief Jacobs.
In part it reads, "We are taking several steps to curb this type of activity. We are in the process now of implementing technology at Peachwood Park that will allow for monitoring and will further promote safety. We are currently conducting multiple patrols of parks in our city, including Peachwood. These patrols put four officers at our parks daily between 9:00 am and 9:00 pm. You also have a specific officer from our Community Oriented Police Unit assigned to your area. Feel free to reach out to him for help with any on-going issues in your neighborhood. He is your partner in your community. His name is Officer Blake Richardson and he can be reached at email@example.com."
Thanks so much to the police department for their swift investigation and arrest of these suspects. I continue to have confidence in the City and our police department. Feel free to reach out anytime.Add your news summary here.

4th of July always means parades! Sad we can’t do them this year. 😢Here’s some photos of parades past. Remember when we could do large groups and shake hands?! Hopefully soon. 🤞
So grateful we live in such an amazing country. Happy 4th of July!

Rep. Hall Supports the Arts!
“So Representative Hall...How did you vote this year on issues relating to the arts?”
Thanks so much to the Utah Cultural Alliance (who issued these grades) for their great work! Looking forward to working together again to accomplish even more!
Saturday, June 20, 2020 8:15 PM
All the memories! I mostly want to shed a tear that we didn’t have WestFest this year. 😢 (Would have been this weekend). Perhaps my favorite part is when our campaign does the water station for the 5k/10k. Such a great event! Here’s to WestFest 2021.

Great bipartisan work today by the Utah State Legislature.
1-After SO MUCH cynicism about how the Utah legislature would supposedly cut and slash education budgets.... Turns out we will be fully funding growth AND increasing the WPU (the State’s education funding mechanism). These are hard times, but republicans and democrats (unanimously) voted for and spoke in favor of the new budget and how we prioritized public education.
2- Due to years of fiscal responsibility, we were able to dip into rainy day funds to not only increase public education funding, but also to prioritize crucial social services. This all during a time of historic economic revenue decreases.
3- We also overwhelmingly passed great policy bills that had the buy-in from all the stakeholders. Thanks to everyone for your support. Today we got lots accomplished.
Wednesday, June 17, 2020 7:49 PM
Changes Supported by All Stakeholders
Happy to be co-sponsoring this bill with my colleague and friend Rep. Sandra Hollins. This is how we do things in Utah. Bring people together and solve problems. This bill also includes the support of law enforcement, who yesterday testified in support of the bill.

Bipartisan Clean Air Caucus!
The bipartisan Clean Air Caucus! Every month this group meets. Glad to be part of this group. Republicans and democrats working together to improve our air!

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.
Thursday, June 11, 2020 8:22 PM
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!

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.
**Also, see photo of Rep. Craig Hall and NAACP President Jeanetta Williams giving each other an “elbow bump.”** 😂👊 📷: Ben Winslow

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!

Wednesday, November 27, 2019 11:34 PM
On Tuesday, November 26, the Governor announced that a plan has been developed that will prohibit conversion therapy for minors throughout the State. You may recall that I sponsored a bill in the 2019 session to accomplish the same. My 2019 bill did not pass during the Session. However, after much discussion between the stakeholders throughout the State, the Proposed Rule to prohibit conversion therapy will essentially track the language of my bill.
I am sooooo thrilled with this development. We are well on our way to banning conversion therapy for minors in Utah once and for all. Thanks so much to the Governor, and to the many stakeholders who came together to support this proposal.

Representative Craig Hall
Friday, November 2, 2018 5:14 PM
As you all know, Tuesday, November 6 is Election Day. As we enter into the last few days of the campaign, I just want to express how grateful I am to have met so many of you. Our campaign has literally knocked on thousands of doors, getting to know you better, and learning what issues are most important to you. Doing this has simply made me a better Representative. Thank you so much for your support. I greatly appreciate it.
Just a few reminders. There is only ONE poll location in District 33 on Election Day. That is at West Valley City Hall. Accordingly, they are predicting LONG lines on Election Day. Avoid them by mailing in your ballot. OR, you can drop off your signed ballot in the secure drop box behind West Valley City Hall.
If mailing, your ballot must be postmarked by Nov. 5, the day before Election Day. You can drop off the ballot in the drop box until 8:00 pm on Election Day.
- Effective! - Recognized as one of Utah's "most effective" legislators.
- Sponsored and passed the most significant piece of legislation in several years dealing with campaign finance / ethics in Utah.
- Passed bills protecting and helping victims of sexual abuse.
- Sponsored legislation fighting for West Side schools.
- Passed several bills guaranteeing greater fairness in Utah's election process.
- Actively seek input from West Valley teachers and principals to determine their needs.
- Recognized by the Salt Lake Tribune as a "refreshing” . . . “example of bipartisanship” and as a legislator whose "top issue" is education.
- Sponsored and passed bills making our State government more transparent and accessible.
- Accessible! - I have held over a dozen town-hall meetings, sent out dozens of e-mail newsletters, mailed surveys to my constituents before each legislative session, I actually answer my phone and return calls, have knocked hundreds of doors in District 33 getting to know my constituents better, etc., etc.!
- And more!
Monday, October 29, 2018 8:20 PM
Ballots have arrived, and Election Day is less than one week away!
Several folks have asked me about the options we have this year for voting. So I thought I'd set forth all of the options. Here's a quick graphic that explains it succinctly:
There are three ways to vote:
1 - Return your ballot in the mail. Needs to be completed and SIGNED. Deadline: Must be postmarked by November 5, which is the day BEFORE Election Day.
2 - Drop off your completed ballot - There are various secure ballot drop off locations throughout the County. The closest ballot drop off location to District 33 is at the back of West Valley City Hall. Available 24/7. Also, your ballot must be SIGNED! Here's a picture of the drop off location behind West Valley City Hall:
Deadline: Must be in the box by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
3 - Vote in person - Here, there are two options. You can vote early at West Valley City Hall on weekdays Oct. 31-Nov. 5 from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Election Day voting takes place on November 6th from 7:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. Again, the closest location is West Valley City Hall.
The Election Office tells me that if you vote in person, it is best to bring your already-received ballot with you to exchange it for an electronic ballot.
Things to remember:
1 - The place where you have historically voted will possibly be CLOSED! - Because this is primarily a vote by mail election, the County made the decision to close most poll locations. The only in-person poll location in District 33 is West Valley City Hall!
2 - Because there is only ONE poll location in District 33, the lines on Election Day may be LONG!
DON'T WAIT UNTIL LATE ON ELECTION DAY TO VOTE! Lines may be very long, especially after normal work hours on Election Day.
If you have any questions about the election process, see the County Clerk's website here. Their phone number is 385-GOT-VOTE (385-468-8683). There is also a great FAQ website regarding voter registration and voting here. You can also call me at 801-573-1774 (cell).
Thursday, October 11, 2018 10:00 AM
It's hard to believe, but we are just weeks from Election Day. If it hasn't already, your ballot should be arriving in the mail shortly (more in the above link). We have been reaching out to voters within District 33 for months through knocking on doors, being part of community events, meeting voters at events and on their front porch, putting up signs, etc., etc. It has truly been an honor representing the great folks of District 33. I feel good about what we have accomplished over the last few years and humbly ask for your vote to represent our community for another term at the State Capitol.

So grateful to receive their support. Thank you!

Manning the WestFest 5k/10k water station! Congrats to the hundreds of West Valley residents that participated in the run! Glad we were able to help in some small way. I’ve decided it’s much easier to hand out water than to actually run in the race.
Saturday, June 9, 2018 12:15 AM
I hope you're having a great spring/summer! Following the completion of the general legislative Session begins the off-season, or "Interim" Session. Once a month we meet in committees comprised of both House and Senate members and begin to craft and discuss proposed legislation for the 2019 general session. This year, our first Interim Session was on May 16.

After a three week process, Salt Lake County selected a site within the City of South Salt Lake for the location of a new homeless shelter.
I attended four of the public comment / open house meetings. I saw many of you there. If you missed my correspondence to the Site Evaluation Committee regarding the possible West Valley sites, you can read it here. I greatly appreciate all those who: (1) reached out to me about your thoughts; and (2) came to one (or more) of the public meetings to express your views to the County decision-makers.
I echo the words of the City by saying that although the new shelter will not be located in West Valley City, it is still nearby. I have confidence that City officials, and all elected officials from West Valley (myself included), will work diligently with South Salt Lake and Salt Lake County to mitigate any possible impacts to our community.

I have attended four of the public comment meetings / open house meetings. I greatly appreciate all those who: (1) have reached out to me about your thoughts; and (2) come to one of the many public meetings to express your views to the County decision-makers.
In addition to regularly expressing my views, I wrote a letter to the Site Evaluation Committee. I thought it would be helpful for my constituents to see the correspondence. This expresses many of my thoughts.
