Primer Logo

Welcome to The Primer!

For this episode, Curtis is joined by UPC writer Alex Cragun.

So, you have probably heard of Governor Gary Herbert, perhaps Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox (possibly), you may have even heard of Attorney General Sean Reyes – but can you name the Utah State Auditor (John Dougall) or Treasurer (Richard Ellis)? Can you tell us what they do? Do you know what it takes to be elected to one of these five offices (or did you even know you could be elected to these offices)? Find out all this and more in this episode of The Primer.

Enjoy!
