Governor Gary R. Herbert

Leading the Way

Tom Haraldsen

March 1, 2011

“I’m never surprised by our people,” says Governor Herbert, “because I believe in Utah and our culture—its pioneer heritage, its spirit, its belief in ‘an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.’ It’s not surprising, for example, that we have more SBA loans here than in any other state.”

What he is happiest about is outsiders are seeing Utah “as a great place to live and raise a family, and we’re known as a great place to do business.” Governors sometimes get uncomfortable questions, but being asked for the secret to Utah’s success is never one of them for Governor Herbert.      

From the time that the Golden Spike was driven into Utah soil, creating the nation’s transcontinental railroad system, the state has been called the “Crossroads of the West.” Now, more than ever, it’s becoming the crossroads to many regions and nations. Utah is positioned to continue its growth far into the future.

“You don’t really appreciate a great skier on the bunny hill. The fundamental strength of our state has been tested in this downturn and not only did we not get buried, we’re at the top of the podium.”

Herbert says that with a smile. He is a man who knows that Utah is indeed leading the way.
