    Fran, is and was the best!!!

    I worked with her on various events with her for all of her years in the Governor's office.

    My daughter Kari was an intern in the office of Governor Huntsman's office. Fran, was great with her, and she learned a lot under her direction. She encouraged her and wrote a letter for her the next year when she successfully became a White House intern.

    Fran, will be greatly missed in the Governor's office. I wish her and her family well!

    This was a great story, and well deserved.

    I worked with Fran when she worked at West HS. She was an amazing office assistant, it was no surprise she ended up doing what she was doing and doing an incredible job.

    Thanks for sharing this well-written account of one of the hard working people behind the scenes who make government work, and work well, but never get recognized for their contributions.

    She is a role model for all government employees ( and elected officials) even if some are mired in the "bureaucrat" ways which result in government having a bad reputation.

    Well done. Enjoy your retirement!

    Happy Trails, Ms. Stultz, you've earned it! I'm a Democrat but I have to say I think Utah's been fortunate with our governors. I appreciate articles showing the hard work that government employees put in that are rarely visible to the public. Thank you, DN, for publishing this.

    This is the kind of article I love to read..homey things about the people in charge. I'm sure she and her people skills will be missed. There are so many behind-the-scenes people we never know much about.. One of the most appreciated feedback comments I ever got while working was, "I don't know what or how you do it, but things just go better when you're around!"

    I enjoyed reading this interesting article online. Now I'm going out to buy a paper so my 94 year old mother can enjoy it too.
