Local News

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah(News4Utah) Every Thursday, GMU asks for you. Our Emily Clark had a chance to sit down with Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox, who talked about the hard work he and the Governor put into the Legislative session. We asked him the questions you emailed us in this week’s Ask the Authority segment.

  1. The Legislative session is over, but there’s still work to be done. What are the next steps for you and the Governor?
  2. The turnout for caucuses was down this year. Do you expect this to have an effect on primaries coming up in June?
  3. You recently opened up about your experience with suicide and mental health. You got very raw and real in a blog post. So why is it so important to bring more attention to the topic?
  4. You’ve been very vocal in your role in Puerto Rico relief. What kind of experiences has this brought you? And tell us about your lunch with the man behind ‘Hamilton.’
