    What a stark comparison in reporting - the Trib versus the DesNews. The Trib totally destroys this new appointee with their article while the DesNews doesn't offer an opinion- just information. I would have to go with the DesNews on the better reporting this time. What a smear campaign the Trib did to this woman - almost as if someone at the Trib had sour grapes they did not get the job. I bet Governor Herbert is cringing at this appointment after the Trib article.

    I guess the Gov does not believe that there is anyone in the Great State of Utah capable of leadership positions in state departments and divisions. This is the second person from outside Utah that has been hired for a leadership position in the last couple of months. The first one was the new director for the Division of Facilities Construction & Management (not only from outside Utah, but someone who has been outside of the US for a time).

    I guess the Gov thinks that Utah is a "Great State", but not so when it comes to people capable of leadership in State departments and divisions.

    I am both sad and angry. You mean to tell me, no one in the state of Utah qualified for this position? I know they applied and I know it is an appointed position. So everyone in the chain of command has hit their ceiling. This breeds angry, hurt, and employees with low morale.

    Where's the reporting on her being fired from Louisiana for incompetence & "financial irregularities"? She'll fit in perfectly with Herbert's regime.
