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.

    I just want to give my condolenses to Karen Mayne and her family.
    Ed Mayne was a great man and he did alot for many people and the west side. My Dad, William Copenhaver often talked about Ed and said what a great guy he was and how he really cared about the middle class and those in need. He would often praise him and he thought alot of him. They were both from Bingham. Ed Mayne and Karen attended my Dad’s funeral, I thought that was so thoughtful of them. My Mom, Bonnie Copenhaver was best friends with Karen’s Mom Carol Hibler. They worked at Zions Bank together for years. Karen, My thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time. May God Bless.
