This week the Republican Party in San Juan County held their Lincoln Day Dinner in Monticello, Utah. It was attended by representatives from Senator Hatch and Senator Lee’s offices. Also, Utah State Auditor John Dougall attended the event. They were all asked to say a few words, but the guest speaker for the event was Representative Michael Noel.
Rep. Michael Noel has been a champion for access to public lands for over 20 years. He is a loud powerful voice against the overreach and injustice rural Utahns have been faced with at the hands of the Bureau of Land Management and the US Forest Service. Representative Noel has demonstrated time and time again that he has no problem standing up for the people he represents against the Justice Department or whoever. He cares about the people, the land, the State of Utah, and this great nation we live in the United States of America.
“Representative Mike Noel summarized events from the past several years, relative to Recapture Canyon, Dan Love’s infamous dealings with the public, and how citizen’s rights have been squelched for two decades,” stated Janet Wilcox who was representing the Stewards of San Juan
Prior to Representative Michael Noel’s talk, Janet Wilcox of the Stewards of San Juan gave away a few gifts as part of a fundraiser for the Stewards of San Juan that they had at the event. The Stewards of San Juan will be holding another event Monday night on April 3rd in Blanding.
The Lincoln Day Dinner was a well-planned event and The Petroglyph appreciates Cody Nielson, Sterling Black, and Vint DeGraw allowing us to attend the event.
