Maryann Martindale, executive director of the Alliance for a Better Utah, has released the following statement.
“It would be naïve to believe that this is the extent of bad behavior in Utah politics. Robust ethics laws, campaign finance reform and voter election reform, including independent redistricting and competitive elections, are all crucial to curbing corruption in Utah politics and for restoring the public trust. These arrests are the beginning. The legislature must also do its part and pass reasonable legislation to further discourage this type of behavior.”
