Ex-GOP lawmaker Craig Frank to fill his former Utah House seat
Ravell Call, Deseret News
SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah House member who had to give up his seat last year because he lived outside his district is back in the Legislature.
Republicans in House District 57 on Wednesday elected Craig Frank to replace Holly Richardson, who resigned to work on former state Sen. Dan Liljenquist's U.S. Senate campaign. Frank's appointment to the northeastern Utah County seat is subject to the governor's approval.
Richardson replaced Frank after he found out last January that he did not live within the district, as required by state law, when he entered his name into a new House website and the face of another lawmaker came up on the computer screen.
The area of Cedar Hills he moved into in 2009 was undeveloped and being annexed into the city during the redistricting that followed the 2000 census. Frank now lives in the district.
Frank was first elected to the House in 2003.
