Today, the Utah House of Representatives welcomes the newest House member Marsha Judkins. The Utah County Republicans selected Rep. Judkins to fill the vacancy in District 61, after former Rep. Keith Grover, whose term would have ended in December, filled the vacant seat in the Senate. She was appointed by Governor Gary Herbert on Tuesday, July 17 and sworn in by the chief clerk of the House on July 18, 2018.

“We’re excited to welcome Rep. Judkins to the House,” said Speaker Greg Hughes. “She hit the ground running doing the work of the people after being sworn in this morning.”

Rep. Judkins was assigned to the Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Environment Interim Committee, Public Utilities, Energy, and Technology Interim Committee and Higher Education Appropriations Subcommittee. She attended July interim meetings and will participate in the Second Special Session of the 62nd Legislature.

Judkins is a former Provo School Board member and currently teaches part-time in the Developmental Math Department at Utah Valley University. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a minor in Mathematics and Masters in Public Administration from Brigham Young University. Judkins and her husband have seven children and 12 grandchildren.
