With all the goings on in West Jordan, I find it ironic that the former mayor is scrambling around with the current city manager, doing all they can to try to justify the absence of competitive bidding on the city's soccer complex. It's unfortunate that they're spending so much time (and in the case of the city manager, money) covering their backsides. If only the two of them had spent half as much time making good decisions while the former mayor was in office.

I am sure that the soccer fields are a tremendous asset to the community. I also understand that there were many donations that helped put this project over the top. Still, does that allow those who are in charge to circumvent the law? That is a question that the citizens of West Jordan must answer.Ron Holgreen
