Sen. Mike Lee to hold town-hall meeting

Sen. Mike Lee will hold his final town hall meeting in Summit County before returning to Washington D.C. for congressional session next week.

Lee, a Republican, will address constituents today, Wednesday, Sept. 2, at 7 p.m. at North Summit High School, in Coalville. The U.S. Senate reconvenes Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Lee will spend the first part of the meeting discussing his agenda and the issues at the forefront for Washington leaders before opening up to questions from the audience. The event is expected to last until about 8:30 p.m.

"Town hall visits play a significant role in my effort to serve the Utahns whom I represent," Lee said in a statement on his website. "These events are important in two ways. First, town hall visits provide an opportunity to update Utahns about my legislative efforts as a United States Senator. I use this as a forum where I can provide specifics about ways in which I am working to bring constitutional reform to Washington. Second, these events provide an opportunity to answer constituent questions and I can hear first-hand about the issues which are important to local Utahns."

The Summit County town hall meeting is the second Lee will be attending this week. He was scheduled to appear at Woods Cross High School in Bountiful Tuesday.

No similar meetings are scheduled for Lee after Wednesday, according to Sally Mero, Lee’s executive assistant. Mero said the meetings will resume sometime in October.
