To the editor:

The response to record-breaking snowstorms, high winds and frigid temperatures serves as a testament to the dedication and commitment of Utah's public employees.Maintenance crews from the Utah Department of Transportation and members of the Utah Highway Patrol deserve special recognition for the jobs they have done under extreme conditions. Working long hours under potentially life-threatening conditions, these men and women continually perform beyond the call of duty.

I want to express my thanks and gratitude for their outstanding efforts during the trying conditions of this winter season.
