Cheryl Butler is quoted as saying “Education is a big concern, and making sure that we have appropriate funding for education. Health care, housing affordability — all of those things impact rural Utah. But what I find is that people feel pretty strongly that their voice in rural Utah is not being heard and that resources tend to be focused and concentrated in the valley, in the larger urban areas.” The complete article can be found at this link.
