It has been a hard decision but Ronda Menlove, R-District 1, says she has decided not to seek re-election this year. Menlove says she has loved her work in the legislature but she has also had 10 grandchildren born during the 10 years she has served.
Menlove has decided she wants to focus more on her family, her work as a Utah State University administrator and other opportunities. She is encouraging other people to run for the office and the district includes part of Cache County and much of Box Elder County. Menlove told KVNU she is hoping Republican women will consider running for the office.
