Utah’s Speaker of the House to address Cache Republican Women

The Cache Republican Women luncheon will feature House Speaker Becky Lockhart, the first woman to hold that office in Utah. The luncheon will be on Tuesday, June 7 at Hamilton’s Steak and Seafood. Karen Petersen, vice president for Cache Republican Women, said she thinks it will be great opportunity to hear from Utah’s Speaker of the House.”She has an important role and we are excited that she accepted the invitation and look forward to hearing her talk to us,” Petersen said.Senator Lyle Hillyard, R-Logan, said he was contacted by the Cache Republican Women and was told they wanted a woman speaker who was involved in politics. He said Lockhart was an obvious choice because she is the first woman Speaker of the House.”She ran against an incumbent candidate and beat him, which is a pretty good accomplishment, and I could think of no one better than to have Becky come speak,” Hillyard said.The luncheon is at 12 noon and the cost is $12 per person. Petersen said everyone is welcome to attend.
