Governor’s Inaugural Address Shines Light on Utah’s Unique Spirit

With his reelection, Utah Governor Gary Herbert gave his inaugural address on Wednesday. “Today I would like to talk about what I see as the unique spirit of Utah,” shared Governor Herbert. “By almost any measure, Utah’s quality of life and economy are among the best in the nation. Of course we recognize that we have our challenges and we certainly have room for improvement. But overall and by comparison, Utah is doing exceptionally well.” The Governor goes on to explain that he believes the main reason Utah is doing well is the general goodness of the people. “You may not always see it in yourselves,” shared Herbert, “but the uncommon blend of your humanity, your hard work, and your willingness to pull together, despite differences, defines the Utah spirit.”
