Address change prompts Rep. Jackie Biskupski to resign from Utah House
She looks forward to spending more time with family
Her proudest moments as a legislator involved advancing social justice for all Utahns. "Social justice means justice for everyone on every level."
Biskupski said she wasn't the sort of lawmaker that ran a lot of bills. She often worked behind the scenes to "kill bad legislation."
"I try to help. I try to make a difference. That's been very important for me," she said.
Biskupski, who said she is attempting to adopt a second child as a sibling to her son, Archie, said one of her regrets was not being able to repeal legislation that prohibits gay couples from adopting children.
Perhaps one of Biskupski's greatest contributions as a lawmaker was "articulating a message from a personal place," she said.
"So much of what happens up here is so negative toward the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community."
As for her successor, Biskupski said she hopes that party leaders "choose wisely."
