A performance by the One Voice Children’s Choir helped mark the inauguration of Gary Herbert to his first full term as Governor. The ceremony also included performances from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and a 19 gun salute by the Utah National Guard. In his inaugural address Herbert refrained from making any strong political statements. Instead he urged everyone to keep pressing forward while praising the “can-do” attitude of state residents both past and present.
