District 45-an old face returns?

Mark Walker is the current legislator serving in District 45 is Salt Lake County. He was appointed in 2004 to finish the term of Morgan Philpot, who left Utah to attend law school in another state. Recently he has been seen haunting the halls of the Capitol and in deep conversation with conservative Republican legislators. Coincidentally, there is an election campaign beginning to elect Mark Walker the State Treasurer. That would leave an open seat in District 45. Perhaps Rep. Walker was just keeping the seat warm for Philpot until his return to Utah? Interesting thought.

I have some real concerns about Mark Walker's credentials and abilities. Utah has been fortunate to have an intelligent, dynamic state treasurer in Ed Alter, and we need to work hard to make sure that the next state treasurer knows what he's doing.

Definitely or she!

Also, I think Morgan Philpot went to that law school that accepts everyone. Some place in Lansing, MI. My sister used to live near there.
