*Representative Justin Miller Resigns From Utah Legislature*

*Salt Lake City* – Representative Justin Miller released the following
statement this morning:

“I understand the charges against me, and I take full responsibility for
the mistakes I have made. My failure to communicate in a timely and
transparent manner led to the loss of trust with my friend and colleague,
Mayor McAdams. While this mistake occurred prior to my legislative service,
I believe elected officials should be held to a higher standard. It is that
standard that has led me to choose this difficult, but necessary course.
Today I resign my position as elected Representative of House District 40.
While there is no way to change my unfortunate choice, I am working to
making it right. I am actively engaged with leaders at the legislature to
ensure the positive changes I have helped to bring about for my Millcreek
constituents will endure. I am continuing to cooperate with the ongoing
federal investigation into Salt Lake County. Most of all I am taking this
time away from public service to give my family back the balance and peace
they deserve.

I am humbled by the compassion and outpouring of support from my Millcreek
community in these last months of uncertainty. To them I say I am sorry and
ask for their forgiveness. While I may no longer be in the legislature, I
will continue to fight for our community and our state.

My family and I ask that our privacy be respected through this time. We
thank all those who have and continue to support us.”
