On Monday February 10th stakeholders and business leaders from Southeast Utah converged on the Hoodoo Moab, Curio Collection by Hilton for the 2020 Canyonlands Business Summit. Utah’s 3rd District Congressman John Curtis carved out a piece of his very busy schedule to welcome attendees with a few minutes reminiscing about the trials and tribulations of being a business owner in Utah then a locally elected official. Congressman Curtis kept the room’s attention telling tales of life in the trenches on both sides of the equation. The Congressman put a human face on the problems many in the room have come up against. His unique position of business owner trying to deal with zoning and regulation and then later being on the other side of the battle as the Mayor of Provo gave attendees a perspective few could have offered.
