Governor's Race

Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Peter Cooke criticizes Governor Herbert on Public Lands policy, Salt Lake County decides to help fund the new downtown theater, and KUER’s Dan Bammes takes a tour of the new LDS temple in Brigham City.

Cooke for Governor

Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Peter Cooke says he’ll limit individual contributions to his campaign, if Governor Gary Herbert will join him. Cooke and his running mate Vince Ramptom stood with Utahn’s for Ethical Government Tuesday at the State Capitol to propose a series of ethics reforms, including an overhaul of Utah’s campaign finance laws.

Cooke says declining voter participation in Utah is a testament to a lack of confidence in state government.
