KAYSVILLE, Utah (AP) -- The son of a former state senator will fill a vacant seat in the Utah House of Representatives.
The Standard Examiner of Ogden reports Dr. Stewart Barlow, a Republican from Fruit Heights, has been elected by delegates in House District 17 after defeating seven other candidates.
Barlow, who is a heart and neck surgeon, ran on a platform focused on state's rights and economic development.
Barlow will replace Rep. Julie Fisher who resigned last month to be the executive director of the Utah Department of Community and Culture.
Barlow says he doesn't plan to serve as long as his father, Haven Barlow, who was a legislator for 42 years.
