By Bev Evans
Utah State Senator, District 26
I will be submitting my letter of resignation today.
Many of you know this was to be my last year in the legislature. It has turned out to be a difficult one. My husband passed away unexpectedly and then several other serious challenges have arisen since that time. For many reasons, I needed to find a job and/or a meaningful cause with which to be active and engaged.
I found both.
An opportunity came up to work for rural economic development in the executive branch. I can’t work in both branches of government at the same time so I need to say goodbye to my legislative family two months early.
Serving in the Utah State Legislature was one of my life’s great experiences. My colleagues and the many people with whom I have shared work, time, and memories have been wonderful. My constituents are among the best people on earth and I have represented them as well as I know how.
I've asked the Senate President to accept my letter of resignation, effective Wednesday, November 1st.
