Governor Huntsman Welcomes New LDS Presidency
Utah Governor Jon Huntsman issued the following statement today:
"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is an important part of our Capitol city and our great State. It is good to know that after the death of its tremendous long-time leader, President Gordon B. Hinckley, the LDS Church will continue in the capable hands of President Thomas S. Monson and his able counselors, President Henry B. Eyring and President Dieter F. Uchtdorf.
"I look forward to continuing my association with President Monson as he takes this new role. He is a compassionate leader who is committed to bettering his community, our nation and the world.
"As home to the LDS Church headquarters, the State of Utah has the good fortune of working with an organization so uniquely focused on service and humanitarian efforts and we will continue this association with this next generation of leadership."
