Utah leads the nation in volunteerism and charitable giving by significant margins . Forbes awarded Utah the best state for business in 2012 for the third straight year  and the best state in the nation for debt management in 2009 ; The Pew Center in a 2008 report which graded the states indicated that they consider Utah to be the best managed state in the nation ; in January of 2011 The Milken Institute gave Utah the highest rating in the nation for Technology and Dynamism .
With all of these accolades one would think those looking at our state’s political system would be looking for what is right and working. Not the case for a Utah group who label themselves the “Count My Vote Executive Committee” (CMV). They are threatening the state’s political parties, stating that, they will run a petition to enact a law that makes significant changes to each party’s nominating process if the parties do not conform to their demands (click here to see their latest memo to the parties).
