The article titled "Anti-bureaucrat jumps into Human Services post" (April 16), left me disturbed and angry. The description of Rod Betit, executive director of the Department of Human Services and director of the Department of Health, was the problem.

The description of his management style is one of arrogance and rudeness to the public he is hired to serve. He apparently feels that he knows all the answers, when he may not even know the questions. A public servant should be civil, open-minded and fair. Taking pride in a "know-it-all attitude" is contrary to effective public service.The governor should have selected a person to run these critical departments who is better suited to meet Utah's needs. Surely, there is an educated, competent and compassionate Utah person who could have been chosen.
