Today is the last day of early voting and it is truly an exciting time of year!
Over the last week, I have traveled from Northern to Southern Utah (and all parts in between) and as always, I am encouraged by the optimism and enthusiasm exhibited by those I meet.
As Election Day nears, Utahns can be confident with the positive direction of our State. The conservative nature of our people, which is mirrored in the policies of our state government, has enabled us to weather the ‘Great Recession’ better than most every other state. Indeed, when we consider Utah’s basic economic factors (job expansion, low taxes, sound fiscal management), we are accomplishing what other states are simply striving to overcome.
As Governor, my promise to all Utahns is to continue to lead this State as I have over the past year. I will bring people together; I will build consensus; and I will find workable solutions to the challenges we face. By working together, we will ensure Utah continues to be a model for the rest of the nation.
Thank you for all of your support over the last year. Jeanette and I are humbled at the outpouring of support and could not be more honored to serve in the Governor’s office.
Gary R. Herbert
