After spending a quarter century working with all levels of government, I learned to appreciate Eddie Mayne and his ability to introduce the voice of reason into many activities and discussions. Although he lacked membership in the state's duly anointed party, and never had the requisite "R" by his name, he provided a great deal of service to all Utah citizens throughout the years. I didn't always agree with his position, but I always respected him. That's way more than I can say for most politicians.
