Jack Draxler, a State Representative for District 3, has announced that he will not be seeking reelection in 2016. Draxler, a Republican, will conclude his fifth two-year term on December 31, 2016.
In a press release, Draxler says he is making the announcement now so that those who wish to begin gathering signatures for a candidacy to replace him will be able to begin that process as early as Monday January 4, 2016.
Draxler says representing the people of the 3rd District for 10 years has been one of the highlights of his life. He says he hopes his body of work as a legislator speaks of truly representing the good people of Cache Valley and the state of Utah.
