“UMA, I wanted to reach out to you and simply say “thank you” for representing us as well as other manufacturers in the state in regards to the Biden administration vaccination mandate.  When I reached out to you in early October you quickly put a Zoom meeting together with Senator Lee and different influencers including our own CEO Mark Jenkins on October 21st.  This is why we belong to the UMA.  You continue to represent us politically, You fight battles on our behalf that we are not always qualified to fight, and you are great to keep us informed of the results.  Thanks again for helping us avoid a catastrophic problem we would have encountered had the supreme court voted differently.  All the best with the upcoming Utah legislative session.

Sincerely,”
