He is a distinguished and successful leader in politics and the private sector who cares deeply about the strength of our democratic institutions and who has made significant contributions to both his home state of Utah and the nation,” Hassell said. “We look forward to learning from his experiences and perspectives on civic engagement, civil discourse and much more.”
