Our "Coming to our Census" series effectively adopts the spirit of 18th-century statesman Edmund Burke's intergenerational compact by challenging the Utahns of today to consider how to fulfill their responsibility to the Utahns of tomorrow.
“Every person deserves the freedom to prosper. As you explore in our reporting what Utah will look like in the next quarter century, carefully consider the legacy you are creating for a rising generation that yearns for little more than the pursuit of genuine happiness. It is through a culture of responsibility, established by our collective choices, that Utah will meet the challenges of its changing demographics.”
