I’ve been fairly active in local politics, even to the point of visiting some of the rural county political events because I enjoy grass-roots politics so much. Other than the Iron County Commission races for seat A and C there isn’t much going on other than the governor’s race, so I’ve been observing things there too.

The big difference this time is that Herbert seems content to send subordinates in his place to many of the rural county events and even some along the Wasatch Front. The governor also spent an enormous amount of money to get his face plastered on billboards up and down the state. Both are big mistakes. I tire of Herbert and any other politicians taking credit for the hard working industrious people of Utah that makes our economy one of the best in the nation.

First of all, many rural counties are disappointed with Herbert’s service over his past two terms. Their economies are suffering, and the outlook in another Herbert term is for more talk and less action. For him to no-show their most important political events and refuse to debate in rural Utah is a slap in the face.

Secondly, people are pretty much done with scenery-obscuring billboards, their tired messages, and their low-energy pictures of Governor Herbert. If the governor is serious about winning a third term, he needs to lose the billboards, be as available as his opponent (Jonathan Johnson), and show the respect we deserve and debate in rural Utah.
