After a great deal of turmoil in the Utah Attorney General’s Office, Democratic candidate Charles Stormont said he is committed to restoring public service and principles of the office. Stormont was in Logan Saturday for the annual Democratic Party’s Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner and auction.
Stormont also held a “meet and greet” with local residents at the Cache Chamber of Commerce Saturday before the dinner.
On <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/324/2014_05_30_324_22692_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>KVNU’s For the People program Thursday</a>, Stormont said he has been an attorney in the AG’s office for six years and he knows how to bring integrity back to the office.
Stormont said the office needs to have more eyes on the cases.
“When you have more eyes on more cases you increase the opportunity for the public servants here to speak up when something isn’t being done correctly,” said Stormont, “rather than facilitating individual attorneys being isolated. That subjects them to intimidation and the kind of abuse that we’ve seen.”
He said this can be done without increasing the number of attorneys. Stormont is an experienced trial lawyer and has also had extensive business experience.
