Speaker Hughes statement about Commissioner Squires retirement
SALT LAKE CITY – Speaker Greg Hughes issued this statement following Commissioner Keith D. Squires’ retirement from public service.
“While Commissioner Keith Squires retirement is well deserved, his departure from public service will be felt across the state. I have never had a better relationship with our Department of Public Safety, and it is all due to his dedication and collaboration. His leadership has made our state safer, and without him, Operation Rio Grande would not have been possible.
Just recently my district felt the impact of his leadership when he did not hesitate to provide resources and support in search of a missing Draper Boy Scout and the honoring of Draper Fire Battalion Chief Matt Burchett. Utah has greatly benefited from Squires’ dedication to making positive impacts throughout the state, and I consider him a close friend.”
