CEDAR CITY — State Sen. Evan Vickers is asking for voter input on a range of topics, including several current and upcoming issues being considered by the 2019 Utah Legislature.

Vickers said he has already heard from hundreds of voters who have taken his 13-question survey since last weekend, and he is extending the invitation to any others who have not yet had the chance to respond.

“I take this voter input very serious and read each comment,” Vickers said in an email sent Wednesday morning inviting constituents to take the survey.

“Accordingly, I am sending out this online voter survey again for those who may have missed it last week.”

Vickers represents Utah’s Senate District 28, which includes Iron and Beaver counties, as well as part of Washington County. He has served in the Utah Senate since 2013 and is the current Senate Majority Leader.

The survey, which takes an estimated 12 minutes to complete, features questions on a range of topics, including budget priorities, health care, 3.2 percent beer, food sales tax, medical cannabis and whether an elected official should be able to hold multiple public offices simultaneously.

Survey respondents are also asked to rank their top three issues in order of importance and tell whether they favor state tax cuts be in the form of lower income taxes vs. lower sales taxes.

“Thank you for taking the time to give me this valuable input. I use this information to craft legislation and when making decisions on how to vote on your behalf,” Vickers states in a message at the end of the survey, which also promises further updates.
