SALT LAKE CITY — Restoring public trust in The Utah Attorney’s Generals Office: Sean Reyes says he’s up for the challenge, but so does his democratic challenger, Charles Stormont.
The two were at the Hinckley Institute of politics Friday, discussing ways to improve transparency in the public position.
“We want to make sure, not only do we not step over that line, but that there’s no perception even that there’s a conflict between the political side and the policy side,” said Utah’s acting A.G., Sean Reyes, to a crowd of students at the University of Utah.
In the world of politics, sometimes perception is what ultimately leads to your demise. John Swallow stepped down from his embattled position as Utah’s A.G. amid allegations of bribery and after allegedly violating campaign finance laws.
