$1,000 and a quarter of a candidate's budget is no "small amount of
money." Seems there's some truth to the call. The unions should not be
controlling our schools. Return the money.
Hasn't the Canyons School District/Board been political and controversial
since day one?
I know mccarty personally and he's the last person who would ever knowingly
initiate calls like these. He's got the school board on the right track.
The high school looks beautiful.
Mr. McCarty asked for the endorsement of the Canyon's Education Association
and didn't get it. I think he is jealous that the teachers support Chad
Iverson. There is obviously a reason they didn't support Mr. McCarty. The
teachers in the district know best what is going on with the Superintendent and
the School Board, and they don't like it at all. They would vote Chad in
in a heartbeat. And to "bearman's" comments, who would take the
time to get a list of names, numbers, and spend the money for a robo call and
not let Mr. McCarty know about it? Hmm, makes you wonder who is behind the call
I was one of the "lucky ones" to receive this phone call with no
identifying information as to who was sponsoring this call. Because it
didn't give a "fair and balanced" view of both candidates, I can
only assume that it was to taint my view towards Mr. Iverson. Now who would want
that? To me, it appears either his opponent or someone who wants to see Mr.
Iverson's opponent win. I'm sad to see that politics in Utah, of all
places, has become slimy. The call came from a cell phone/landline number that
could not be identified. Wonder why that is... As well, prior to that I
received a "trolling" call 30 minutes before I got this one asking who I
was voting for at all different levels in Utah, but this race was particularly
mentioned. Again, the number was not identifiable. I know Mr. Iverson who is a
man of good character and principle--he has my vote!
Actually, the call speaks the truth. Iverson doesn't deny one word and
actually confirms its accuracy in an email I got yesterday. Even in this
newspaper article, he says he does indeed oppose the ethics code and admits he
got funding from the union. @lovemykids: Supt Doty is a "man of good
character and principle" but Iverson has had no problem labeling him a
"bully" for the past several months, damaging his reputation and
attacking his character. Talk about incivility. Iverson has been slinging mud
for months. No wonder he opposes an ethics code. I'm glad someone finally
called him on it and is now speaking the truth.It's too bad
that the children in the district don't have their own PAC to give money to
his opponent. But as an elementary principal, Paul McCarty is still standing for
kids every day. My vote is for McCarty. He's done a good job. Plus, @
baerman: you're right. We finally have a new high school and middle school
in Draper. We've been waiting for a long time. McCarty delivered.
