Highlights from Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr.'s inauguration speech

Agent for change: "I stand before you in the spirit of pure public service — not as a protector of the status quo, but as an agent of change."

Capital: "My father, one of the great entrepreneurs and philanthropists of this state, taught me that capital — monetary or political — is to be used to benefit others. I intend to continue that tradition."

Bridge builder: "My desire is to usher in an unprecedented period of cooperation and community building. People reaching across boundaries — be they religious or race, political or geographic — a state that is truly respectful of each individual's pathway toward life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness must be our hope."
