I know Mark, respect him, think he will/would be an excellent County Mayor. I worry the Democrat will win. Salt Lake County swing voters are fickel. They insist on having a Democrat in office, almost a token in a sea of Republicans. First, it was Jan Graham as Attorney General. Currently it is Jim Matheson in Congress. With the appeal and incredible character of Mia Love, I think many will search the ballot for their new "balance" and will find Ben McAdams.

I hope Crockett wins. If not, I hope McAdams will run a tight ship. Clean, honorable race unlike that Chicago slugfest at the national level.

During a question and answer at a pro-incorporation of Millcreek held at Granite High School last summer I heard Mr. Crockett respond to a question on funding for the proposed city. He started by talking about a study done at one time to split the Granite School District and proceeded to tell the audience that we (the East side) have been subsidizing them (the West side) for too long and the same is true for the proposed city (I disagree, but not the point). I few more "us and them" and I was sickened at the elitist talk and truly embarrassed at the rhetoric. I would not have been surprised had this come from others on the panel, but a man running for the office of mayor of the whole county? I replayed the recording I made just to be sure and sadly it was. I learned that Mark was also an advocate for forming the Canyons school district, something we all pay for now. Sorry you lost my vote then and I am a registered republican.

As registered republican, I support Ben. Mark is a bright man, but, unfortunately, he allowed himself to get caught in the Millcreek incorporation issue. He and Mr. Cullimore, mayor of Cottonwood Heights have stuck their noses into our local business -- and the sponsors of incorporation sell "local control" so why bring republican so-called power players into our Millcreek neighborhood? They, together with the sponsors of incorporation made the incorporation a partisan issue. Both Mark and Cullimore advocate Millcreek to opt out of the UPD--a very bad proposal. Among other issues, we need more political balance in this state and area -- Cullimore and Crockett stay out and keep you hands off Millcreek. Vote for Ben.

By polls they aren't talking about companies calling people. they are talking about the actual vote count information that early voters are providing and can't be disputed, except as illegal voter fraud if you consider the law that make this act illegal.

Early voters who voted have had the election compromised by distribution vote count and information to the prominent of candidates for free, I think they get it free.

According to the new Utah early voting law, votes can be counted and distributed before election day and violating all federal laws that make this act criminal and compromising an election. Secrecy of voting laws are written to stop this kind of political violation of fair and equal elections. Utah law makers have gone over the top in passing and crating this early voting infromation political game playing. I wonder what the federal voting laws would do with this state if they new our state is using and releasing early voter infromation before doors are open at polling booths on Nov 6?

My thinking is all early votes should be discounted and thrown out as compromised illegal voting.
