Riebe plans on a brief introduction followed by a town-hall style question and answer session, and invites all of Kane County’s voters to attend. Planned topics of discussion include the housing crisis and how representatives on the federal level can address such an issue, as well as the subject of monument land and its uses.

According to Riebe’s campaign, “Senator Riebe believes in conserving land and using them well - let’s protect lands from development, while encouraging economical and recreational use like grazing and hunting. It’s a balance between allowing areas a boost in tourism, protecting the land and hearing local community input.”

Per Riebe’s platform declarations, she says, “I want to be one of those effective advocates in Congress, fiscally conservative and reducing the dollar spending at the federal level - and the dollars that are there, I want to make sure they come back to Utah in the form of grants for things like affordable housing.” Riebe goes on, “I’m interested in reaching out to and supporting public employees like police, medical and firefighters. I want to help support them in their roles throughout the state.”

Riebe’s public service experience includes time on the Utah State School Board District and her term as a Senator at the state level. She cites her role as an educator and her experience in the school system, as well as in finance and financial literacy.

Riebe’s visit and Q&A session will be held at the Kanab Center, on Saturday, September 16, planned to go from 4 - 6 p.m. According to Riebe’s campaign, meetings typically start with 15 - 20 minutes of introduction, and the rest of the time is dedicated to questions from the public.
