Governor needs to do what is right

Editor,

On the governor's decision to defend Utah voters (against same-sex marriage): In short, my political philosophy is that leaders are elected by the electorate. They should not do things based solely on the will of the people (or voters) or what the majority thinks or states what they want done. 

If Herbert really believes this, why didn't he defend John Swallow or at the least after he resigned, push for the appointment of Mr. Dee Smith as attorney general? An elected official's first responsibility should be to do what's right. Governor, please reconsider this decision.

John H. Thompson
