Judi Short is the Vice Chair of the Sugar House Community Council. She says the vast majority of residents who attended the recent meeting were opposed to the new development.

Governor Gary Herbert says his challenge to create 100,000 jobs in 1,000 days was a huge success.

Utah Governor Gary Herbert says his office is exceeding expectations at the half-way point of a goal to create 100 thousand jobs in one thousand days.

Speaking at a high tech manufacturing plant that chose to expand in Utah last year, Governor Herbert announced that the private sector has created 63,600 jobs since he announced the goal during his 2012 state of the state speech. Herbert says when companies choose to expand in Utah it often creates a ripple effect that leads to even more job creation.
