WSU to Host Governor’s Commission on Strengthening Utah’s Democracy
Newly sworn-in Lt. Gov. Greg Bell will be a guest presenter at the Governor’s Commission on Strengthening Utah’s Democracy event, scheduled to be held on WSU’s Ogden campus Sept. 24.
Campaign finance will be the primary topic of the commission meeting at WSU.
Bell, who graduated from Weber State College in 1971, will deliver brief remarks on “Ethics in Politics” at the start of the commission meeting, which is scheduled to run from 3 to 6 p.m. in the Dumke Legacy Hall of the Hurst Center for Lifelong Learning. The event is free and the public is strongly encouraged to attend and share their concerns.
The 19-member, bi-partisan commission was created in January 2009 by then Gov. Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. to research ways to increase participation in the electoral process and restore citizens’ confidence in state and local government. The commission regularly meets in locations around the state where citizens can interact with the group and share their perspectives and concerns.
