To the editor:
Until a few months ago, we were leaning toward Joe Cannon for Senate. One day, our 15-year-old daughter read to us a brochure for Brent Ward. We had been frustrated with Joe Cannon's extravagant spending and, after attending two of his lecture series, felt that he lacked straightforwardness in addressing the issues.We found that Ward, however, as U.S. attorney, had been actively involved for years in fighting issues such as pornography, X-rated movie houses, child abuse and many other family issues.
We also learned that he has devised a welfare reform package that, if implemented, would restore dignity to the individual as well as give excellent incentives to all welfare recipients who begin to work and provide for their own.
Ward feels that he must represent the people of Utah, not his own conscience. He may not have the money to buy his way into power, but he has proven, as a public servant, that he can and will represent Utah's family values with strength and integrity.
