Answer:  I remember as a student in middle school and participating in choir and the school musical. I even took art classes at the university level. For class projects, I attended several performances at Abravanel Hall, Capitol Theatre and other venues. I even saw first hand the positive impacts the arts had on the community as I served as the Chief Deputy for the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office. I oversaw the public safety at the Salt Lake County art facilities to include Rose Wagoner, Capitol Theatre, Abravanel Hall and set up the deputies who serve at the new George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater. The arts are an important part of our community. We have thousands of people who visit these sites every year that include school children for educational field trips.
