Long-time St. George resident and local attorney V. Lowry Snow has announced his intention to seek the Utah State House of Representatives seat recently vacated by Republican David Clark of Santa Clara. Clark’s seat in District 74 will be filled at a special meeting of the Central Committee of the Washington County Republican Party scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on January 5 in County Administration Chambers.
Snow stated that his decision to run for office is motivated, in part, by the support and encouragement of several local and state leaders.
Snow graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.S. degree in 1975 and earned a Juris Doctorate from Gonzaga University Law School in 1979. He began his law practice in St. George in 1979 and was co-founder in 1986 of the law firm Snow & Jensen, which later became Snow Jensen & Reece. He maintains an active law practice representing a wide range of clients focusing primarily on real estate, business, municipal government and telecommunications law.
Snow served one term as chairman of the Washington County Economic Development Council and has been a member of its Executive Committee for several years. He previously served as a Trustee for the Economic Development Corporation of Utah and currently sits on the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) Board.
Snow served as the Utah State Bar President from 2007-2008 and as a Bar Commissioner from 2000-2009. He currently chairs the Judicial Performance and Evaluation Commission for the State of Utah, which was established by the legislature in 2008 and charged with the responsibility of evaluating and reporting the performance of all judges in the state.
