We must expect integrity from those who serve.
We all know that Utah has been rocked recently with allegations of wrongdoing by high government officials. Utah expects and deserves much better. When people elect leaders they must be able to trust them to act in good faith, “without passion or prejudice” in the interest of their constituents.
Fortunately, by far most Utah elected leaders are people of high integrity and values. It is sad that a few could make it seem otherwise. While some campaign finance measures can be problematic, one thing we should insist upon is full transparency and disclosure. We must take steps to make sure that everything is open and aboveboard.
