pipsorcle says of him:
but got shut off due to the lack of openness in the Utah Democratic Party (which should be shaken up). Ashdown is a successful businessman, very knowledgeable in the IT/Tech landscape, knows Utah issues and the Utah Democratic Party but is completely an independent-minded Democrat. He is also very transparent.
