I would just offer a friendly rebuttal to those who would criticize our State Legislature. As a long-time observer, I am encouraged at the caliber of the men and women who, in my opinion, give selflessly of their time making difficult decisions that are often unpopular but are generally in our best interest. For the most part they give anonymously, without recognition or reward, sacrificing 45 days of their life during the general session and then countless hours during the remainder of the year.
I sincerely applaud those who serve in the Legislature. I am particularly grateful for those who represent my community, Sandy City.
