Governor Huntsman Extends Condolences to Mayne Family (link)
Salt Lake City – Utah Governor Jon Huntsman issued the following statement regarding the passing of Senator Ed Mayne:

“Senator Mayne served honorably and selflessly in an effort to make Utah a better place for all Utahns. Eddie epitomized pubic service in all that he did throughout his career and community. His devotion to those who were in need of help should stand as an example to all. One could always count on Senator Mayne to stand up for those who could not defend themselves. On behalf of a grateful State, Mary Kaye and I offer our most sincere condolences to Karen and the rest of the Mayne family.”

The Governor has authorized the Flag of the United States of America and the Flag of the State of Utah to be lowered in honor of Senator Ed Mayne. The flags shall be flown at half-staff on all state-owned facilities on the day of interment.
