Former Salt Lake County recorder has stage 4 Alzheimer's, attorney says
Julie Dole ran the best and busiest county Recorders Office in Utah.She did an outstanding job plus gave Gary Ott dignity and kindness.For her good work she is vilified for being a good worker and kind.Judges, Congressmen, Doctors, Football players have dementia.It's past time to stop the Jule Dole bashing party.Where's all the news coverage and outcry for the Juab County
This story illustrates the important role of the media. If it weren't for
certain reporters who investigated and broke this story, Mr. Ott would still be
collecting paychecks at his and the tax payers' expense. For all the
criticism of the media, some of it being warranted, this shows the good that can
come when journalists do their job well.
anyone else tired of government corruption? gary ott situation just seems to one
of many scandals. if his office could function without him, doesnt this suggest
the office is overstaffed and overpaid.
In the early stages of this developing story, long before the official
diagnosis, I wrote at least 3 comments that his disease was acting a lot like
dementia (of which Alzheimer's is one type). Nothing was ever
disrespectful - just observation from one who knows something about dementia.
All of the comments were denied. No explanation provided by moderator.
Possibly others suggested dementia as well and were also denied, as I don't
ever remember reading this word on the comment boards, despite anyone who is
remotely familiar with the disease being able to discern the common elements in
this case. This was despite all kinds of approved comments that were much less
relevant and simply political ranting. It is frustrating when
knowledgeable and accurate comments are denied for unknown reasons, especially
with the vitriol that routinely makes it past the moderator.
I feel sorry for Gary Ott and nothing but contempt for those that used him when
they should have been taking care of him.
