ST. GEORGE — Republican Sen. Mitt Romney will be dropping by Dixie State University in St. George Friday for a town hall meeting.

The town hall will be held at the Gardner Center from 7-8 p.m. in Conference Room D where the senator will be speaking with and taking questions from the public.

The stop in St. George is Romney’s fifth town hall since taking office at the start of the year, Romney’s press secretary Arielle Mueller said, and is part of a tour of town halls the senator is holding across the state.

Romney was elected with 62 percent of the statewide vote in 2018 while taking 70 percent of the vote in Washington County.

He replaced former Sen. Orrin Hatch who held the position for 40 years.

Among Romney’s latest work in the Senate is the introduction for U.S.-Chinese Economic and Security Act. Joining with two Democrat senators on the bill, Romney said the bill “takes a step in the right direction and puts safeguards in place to confront the critical threat China poses.”

Along with Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, Romney also recently introduced the New Parents Act, legislation that “provides parents the flexibility to use their benefits in a way that works best for their household,” according to a statement from Romney’s office.
