Letter: This is how ‘best run’ works?
First Published Jun 27 2014 03:47 pm • Last Updated Jun 27 2014 03:47 pm

Utah claims to be "the best run state" in the country. The odd thing is that there is not enough money for decent schools. We have the worst air in the country during the winter. The local government won’t spend any money to help fix either.

But Governor Herbie just said the state will continue to fight the 10th Circuit Courts decision on same-sex marriages (aka equality), and he says he doesn’t know how much money it will cost. But, full speed ahead.

Governor Herbie and the Legislature want to take the Feds to court to try to get their hands on all of the federal lands in Utah, even though the consensus is that this is a futile attempt, and they don’t know how much it will cost.

Then, there is the issue of investigating what appears to be blatant criminal activities by our former attorneys general, Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow. Both good Mormons and Republicans.

The wailing and crying from the brethren in the Legislature and the governor is that "this is too much state money to spend!"

That’s how they run "the best run state in the country." Does everyone understand now?
