Governor Olene Walker

I love Governor Olene Walker. She and I don't see eye to eye on some hot-button issues, but I think she's a class act. I admire leaders that have the courage of their convictions and aren't afraid to face the political consequences of acting on them. Unfortunately, not a lot of Utahns agree with me. Governor Walker was shut out of the Republican gubernatorial primary.

It's too bad she's leaving office. Fortunately for us, instead of vindictively throwing up her hands and spending her last days in office twiddling her thumbs, she's kept on working at a tax plan that sounds like it will be a good thing for Utah. I hope she runs for governor again. I'd vote for her.
