Logan Monson, Mayor of Blanding, Launches Campaign for Utah Legislature

Blanding Mayor Logan Monson has announced his campaign to represent southeastern Utah in the Utah State House of Representatives.
The seat is currently held by Rep. Phil Lyman, who is not running for re-election.
On his official campaign Facebook account, Logan Monson for Utah House District 69,
Monson said, “Rural Utah deserves a larger voice in state government.
“We contribute to the state’s success in ways that are underappreciated, and I want to help tell our story so legislators can better understand, respect, and advocate for our interests.
“For Utah to succeed, rural Utah must reach its full potential.”
A lifelong Republican and 5th generation livestock producer, Logan works as a nurse administrator serving remote communities.
In addition to his position as mayor, Logan sits on various boards with statewide impact, including the Olene Walker Housing Board, the Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems, the Utah League of Cities and Towns, the San Juan County Prevention, Action, Collaboration Coalition, and the School Community Council for Blanding Elementary School and Albert R.

His wife, Sara, is a school teacher in the San Juan School District, and together they have four children.
“My record and experience in public office gives me an understanding of the issues that
are important in our corner of the state. I will be fiscally conservative, fight for our public
lands’ rights and support local control,” said Monson.
“Just as important, I have demonstrated an ability to listen to the concerns of residents and represent their interests to drive positive change and growth.
“I also want to recognize Rep. Lyman’s dedicated service to this district and its needs for the last several years.
“He is a tireless advocate for the issues facing rural communities, and I know he will continue fighting on our behalf in his future endeavors.”
House District 69 covers all of Kane, Garfield, Grand, San Juan, and Wayne counties, as
well as east Emery County.
Republican state delegates will meet at the state convention on April 27 to choose the nominee for this seat.
