Greg Hughes wears two hats as a public servant. He is the majority whip in the Utah Legislature, and he is also the chairman of the board of the Utah Transit Authority. That makes his comments Wednesday about UTA’s recent audit particularly interesting. On the Tribune’s TribTalk web interview, Rep. Hughes was asked if the fact that UTA has faced three legislative audits since 2008 is a sign of mismanagement at the agency. He said “there’s a political component” to audits and legislators c...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

But UTA officials received some key support, too, including from Sen. John Valentine, R-Orem, who requested the audit. Valentine said Wednesday that he blames problems flagged by auditors on past UTA leaders and believes the agency has taken steps to resolve issues. Rep.

It also can generate coalitions from former enemy camps, depending on the needs of the players involved. Just two years ago, House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, recruited a fellow Utah County legislator, Rep. Francis Gibson, to bump off one of the members of her leadership team, Rep. Greg Hughes, R-Draper, from his position as House Majority Whip. Lockhart campaigned hard for Gibson, R-Mapleton, who she believed would be a more loyal member of ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

That way workers could still enjoy their game break, yet also get a little on-the-job training.
