The Salt Lake Tribune is looking for an experienced reporter (minimum of five years) to work as part of a close-knit team covering state government and politics. Team responsibilities span a wide range of offices and activities.

Also, the team covers federal and state elections, which may include initiatives and referenda (but not county or municipal elections.)
