InfoHarmer, born in Salt Lake City, is a former California senator and lieutenant governor.

Harmer served as a full-time legislator from 1967 through fall 1974, when then-Gov. Ronald Reagan appointed him to serve a four-month stint as lieutenant governor. Also while in California, Harmer was a regent of the University of California, a trustee of the California State University System and chairman of the Legislature Select Committee on Large Urban School Districts.

In 1980, he and his wife, Carolyn, along with their 10 children, returned to Utah. They settled in Bountiful, then moved to Lindon earlier this summer.

Since returning to Utah, Harmer has served as chairman of the National Center for Constitutional Studies, as a private attorney and as organizer of several national conferences. Harmer, 56, worked during the 1980s to clean up cable television in Utah. He helped draft legislation, later amended by the Legislature, to limit indecency on cable TV.

In 1988, Harmer became chairman of Eyring Inc., a Provo-based aerospace, communications and high-technology computer company. He has written two books - one on education and public welfare and the other on drug abuse.
