Commissioner Hatch said, "It has been my pleasure to serve the citizens of this great county. We have the best dedicated employees working for Emery County. It has been a pleasure to serve with the other elected officials. We don't always agree but that is the basis for good government. We have been able to accomplish a lot of great and good things. There have been challenges throughout the years.
"I appreciate the people and the citizens. It has been a privilege to serve," said Commissioner Hatch.
