RICHFIELD — Just two months after Congressman Chris Stewart stepped in front of a hostile crowd at a town hall in Salt Lake City, many wondered how the crowd in Richfield would respond to his appearance Friday.
“To me, democracy is about being able to voice our differences and not calling people names,” said Sherrilee Forbush, who lives in Monroe.
Most of those in attendance Friday night seemed to agree with her stance, because the crowd was much more subdued than the previous one.
Congressman Stewart first addressed topics including the threat of North Korea, and his support for the coal industry in the country, which is a topic that impacts many in Richfield.
