Like any work environment, the Utah Attorney General’s Office has room for improvement. Unlike other work environments, a history of corruption, largely due to unrestricted, dark money campaign contributions, makes improving the environment there much more difficult.
In a recent op-ed in the Deseret News, Isaac Holyoak, communications director for Alliance for a Better UTAH, discussed the results of a recent survey of employees in the AG’s office. The survey, part of Better UTAH’s Citizen Audit Series, presented a clearer evaluation than Attorney General Sean Reyes’ earlier, and much rosier, assessment.
The real story of the attorney general’s office is one of dedicated employees trying to serve their state and provide for their families in a world they see as increasingly controlled by the corrupting influence of money. It wasn’t unique to former AG John Swallow, and it won’t be different for Reyes unless he works with his employees to make changes.
