On Friday, November 5th, RQ&N General Counsel Paul C. Burke spoke at the groundbreaking for the Salt Lake Regional Athletic Complex. RQ&N has provided pro bono support for this project since its inception in 2003. Mr. Burke, a former president of the Utah Youth Soccer Association and the current Chairman of the Rules Committee for the U.S. Soccer Federation, served as the Co-Chairman of the Proposition 5 Bond campaign in 2003. The successful passage of Proposition 5 paved the way for the development of this facility.
Burke joined Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker, Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon, Salt Lake City Councilman Carlton Christensen, and Real Salt Lake owner David Checketts in speaking at the groundbreaking event. He also participated in the ceremonial “First Kick.”
