SALT LAKE CITY -- Ben McAdams, Salt Lake County Mayor, spoke to students Wednesday in an effort to encourage them to be involved in the upcoming legislative session.

McAdams met with University of Utah students for a legislative preview forum. He said his main goal is to help students learn how to advocate for their causes.

“Hopefully what this does is, as college students they become active in advocating for issues that are important to them, and that carries through to a lifetime of voting and involvement in public service,” he said.

Students will have the chance to hear from more legislators in a legislative preview forum on Thursday. The legislative session begins on January 28.
