Past Event: 8th Annual Judge Joseph Story Dinner


The Republican Party of Story County is excited to host former Utah Congressman and Fox News Contributor Jason Chaffetz as keynote speaker for the eighth annual Judge Joseph Story Dinner. This special dinner will take place at Gateway Hotel and Conference Center on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 with doors opening at 5:30 p.m.

Jason Chaffetz was elected to Congress in 2008 and served until 2017.  He was selected by his peers to be a Chairman of the powerful Oversight & Government Reform Committee, where he led investigations into the United States Secret Service, the Department of Education I.T. vulnerabilities, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) data breach, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Benghazi terrorist attack, Fast & Furious and the IRS scandal.

“This is a unique opportunity for Iowa Republicans to hear directly from Congressman Chaffetz about his insight from behind the curtain in Washington, DC.,” said Brett Barker, Story County GOP Chairman. “We are excited to host Congressman Chaffetz for his first visit to Iowa since leaving Congress.”

The dinner is an annual tradition to celebrate Judge Joseph Story. Judge Story served on the United States Supreme Court from 1811-1845 and is the namesake of Story County.
