Day at the Capitol for Leadership Class XIX
Leadership Park City Class 19 spent the first day of the 2013 legislative session visiting our State Capitol and meeting with political and thought leaders. Our day started in a meeting with Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker. He stressed the great working relationship that has developed between Salt Lake City and Park City. We then traveled to the State Capitol and heard from many of our state leaders, including Governor Gary Herbert and Attorney General John Swallow.
As always, Leadership Park City's Day at the Capitol was one of the highlights of our yearlong leadership program. The access to political leaders and the depth and breadth of their commitment and ideas is gratifying and deeply appreciated.
