SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah Gov. Gary Herbert says he will do his civic duty and show up for jury duty next week.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1d9FGXl ) that the Republican leader has been summoned to 4th District Court in Provo on Tuesday.

Herbert’s Deputy Chief of Staff Marty Carpenter says there was never of whether the governor would attend.

Carpenter says Herbert is scheduled to fly to Nevada late Tuesday afternoon for the Western Governors’ Association Annual Meeting but will adjust his plans if necessary.

The Utah State Courts website says judges can excuse potential jurors from service for public necessity or extreme inconvenience, but notes that everyone is inconvenienced by jury duty to some degree.

For the system to work, according the site, people from all walks of life must be willing to serve.
