Gary Herbert on Local Issues

 

 


State Capitol, built a century ago, was built for the future

To everyone assembled here tonight, welcome to our State Capitol. This building symbolizes the pride we have in our past and the optimism we share for Utah's future.

In 1914, when Governor William Spry cemented the cornerstone in place, some wondered why the Capitol needed to be so large when Utah's population was so small. The answer is simple. They were not building for what they were. They were building for what Utah could become.

Just as they laid a solid foundation to make Utah what it is today, it is our responsibility to continue to build upon that foundation and make Utah even stronger.

Tonight, I ask you to join with me in building upon the foundation laid by those who came before us a century ago. As elected officials, we are entrusted by the people to manage the affairs of the state, and to provide vision and leadership. Let us set aside any personal agenda and work to benefit the Utahns we serve.
