Utah Republican Representative Rob Bishop says he has learned through the years that things go much better when people work together even when they have different interests and belong to different organizations.
Rep. Bishop says he plan to retire two years from now and he is hoping to have more accomplishments between now and then.
“Sometimes though, in the (Public Lands Initiative), I have attempted to do that on a grander scale and it fails,” Rep. Bishop says. “It depends.
“If people on both sides have good will, then we can actually work those things out. If somebody is not serious about coming up with compromise, there are some groups out there that are really not serious about compromise, then it’s obviously a difficult thing ever to accomplish.”
Bishop says he has learned that if people have good will there is very little that can’t be worked out. Bishop is being challenged to represent Utah’s 1st Congressional District by Democrat Lee Castillo and United Utah Party’s Eric Eliason.
