The citizens of Utah have enjoyed the benefit of having a number of outstanding lawyers appointed to the federal bench. As a citizen of Utah, I applaud President Bush's recent appointment, Clark Waddoups, to the federal district bench. Clark has practiced law in Utah for many years, he knows the culture, he has been active in the Utah State Bar and he has served in our community.

Our thanks to President Bush and our two U.S. Senators for putting forth this nomination of an eminently qualified attorney.
