LDS Bishop Won't Be Fooled Again

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Bishop Kevin Harsh of the Murray 25th Ward says he won't be fooled again. He was recently asked to announce the time and place of a neighborhood crime watch meeting, but when he attended the meeting with members of his ward, he discovered it was a campaign promotion for a Murray mayor candidate. The candidate, Chad Soffe, a Salt Lake County deputy sheriff, talked about how he could protect the city better than the current mayor. Harsh says he wasn't aware that the meeting would be partisan, and because of the Church's neutrality in elections, he apologized to his ward, "I'd like to publicly apologize for the incident," Harsh said. "I've learned a valuable lesson."
