Washington County's newest commissioner doesn't have to worry about making a name for himself.
Salt Lake County Commissioner Dave Watson has done that for him.That name may be the new commissioner's biggest headache. David Leon Watson was sworn in as a county commissioner in St. George after the resignation of Garth Last.
That gives Utah two commissioner Dave Watsons at a time when the state is still talking about the antics of the first one.
Salt Lake County Commissioner Dave Watson recently pleaded guilty to a drunken driving and two misdemeanor drug charges.
Washington's Watson is quick to put distance between himself and Salt Lake's Watson. Shortly after being appointed, he asked to be remembered as the Watson from Washington County, not Salt Lake County.
If the 300 miles don't help, there's always his name. He introduces himself as David Leon Watson.
Now what was it Shakespeare said was in a name?
