ST. GEORGE – The public has the opportunity to meet Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes at Dixie State University Friday night.

Hosted by the Washington County Republican Party, Reyes will be speaking and taking questions in a town hall meeting beginning at 7 p.m., Friday, at the Eccles Fine Arts Center on the Dixie State campus at S. 700 E. in St. George. The town hall is open to the public.

Prior to the town hall meeting, Reyes will be in the foyer for a meet and greet with attendees starting at 6:30 p.m.

“You need to get to know your representatives, and he’s representing the legal part of the state,” said Nick Lang, former chair of the Washington County Republican Party.

In the town hall, Reyes is anticipated to speak for approximately 25 minutes, Lang said, and then take questions from the audience.

Specific topics Reyes will address include legal issues related to the state, such as water and public lands, Lang said. He will also give his take on the 2016 presidential elections and how they will potentially effect Utah, the West and the country as a whole.

“We’re looking forward to having his insight on that,” Lang said.

Reyes was appointed as Utah’s Attorney General in December 2013 following the resignation of Attorney General John Swallow. He was then elected to the position in 2014.

A Republican, Reyes is being challenged for the position by Democratic candidate Jon Harper, Independent American candidate Michael Isbell, and Libertarian candidate W. Andrew McCullough.

The general election is Nov. 11.
