U.S. District Court Judge to speak at Dayton Veteran’s Day event

U.S. District Court Judge Ted Stewart, a southeast Idaho native, will speak at a Veteran’s Day Memorial program Thursday, November 11 at the Dahle Performing Arts Center in Dayton, Idaho. Stewart, based in Salt Lake City, said he would address “The United States Constitution, the Foundation of Our Freedoms”. “A couple of weeks ago a fellow from our area, Dave White, said it would be a good idea to have Judge Stewart, a West Side High School graduate, come back to the Dahle Center and talk about the constitution,” said Boyd Stewart, one of the organizers. Before his appointment to the bench Ted Stewart served as Chief of Staff to Congressman Jim Hansen and he was also Governor Mike Leavitt’s Chief of Staff. “Ted ran for the U.S. Senate in 1992 and he and Mike Leavitt became acquainted in Vernal when they were both running for office. They once drove from Vernal to southern Utah together the first time they met and became good friends.” He was appointed to the federal bench as a District Judge in 1999. “He loves the country and he loves the Constitution,” said Boyd Stewart, who is Ted’s brother. “Ted teaches courses at Utah State University on the Constitution.” The program begins at 7 p.m. next Thursday. The public is invited.
