Demo makes ethics point

SHARE Demo makes ethics point

Kudos to Richard Watson, chairman of the Davis County Democratic Party, for his piece on government ethics ("My View," Jan 12). And I'm saying this as a longtime Republican voter.

When Jon Huntsman Jr. was just beginning his campaign for governor, I was impressed with his proposals for ethics reform. Since then I have heard very little of them. Is this because he has changed his mind, or has he succumbed to pressure from others to back off? Either scenario disturbs me.

While in my opinion Mr. Watson may have used an overly partisan approach to make his point, it is still a valid point: "The best remedy is to elect more public officials with integrity who are dedicated to ethics reform."
