Staff Association

Contact Your Legislators

As the Utah Legislature prepares to convene for its 2014 Legislative Session, we would like to remind you of the importance of communicating with your legislators.  They have expressed a desire to hear from you.  Email is the best way for most of the legislators to hear your comments.   Brief texts are also effective.  Many of the legislators have their cell phones listed with their contact information on the Utah State Legislature web site.  Let them know how you feel about issues that pertain to the University, as well as our community and state.  If you have any comments or concerns about the legislative process or agenda items, don’t hesitate to contact them.  If it is important to you, it is important to them—they represent each of us.  As Southern Utah University is Iron County’s largest employer, the SUU Staff Association encourages your involvement in this important matter.  Find contact information below for individual representatives and those who represent constituents in the SUU service area [Nine Counties: Beaver, Garfield, Iron, Kane, Millard, Piute, Sevier, Washington and Wayne].

The Staff Association has provided contact information for legislators who have ties to Southern Utah and sit on the Higher Education Appropriations Committee. Please take time over the next few weeks to contact your State Senator and Representative.
