    There is no organization in Utah that is unaccountable for huge sums of money than UTA.

    I managed finances for a van pool at one time and UTA could never even track our expenses correctly. It was simply amazing how bad their accounting systems are.

    Something must change, but political appointments is not the way to go. UTA has a long history of completely disregarding the needs of its riders. UTA routinely ignores the comments and concerns of people who actually ride the bus. UTA continues to cut service to Davis County because they apparently believe that only Salt Lake County deserves bus service.

    Rep. Gregory Hughes needs to step down, from the board all so. There needs to be citizens from the community, that use the bus, trax. UTA has Good Bus Service in Down Town Salt Lake, in the Avenues and the University of Utah. UTA has Destroyed the Bus System in the rest of Salt Lake County.

    Individuals that are real estate development, construction/property management, needs to step down also. What Taxpayer paying for.

    The decision to remove elected officials and replace them with political appointees will ensure that the existing corruption can continue with less oversight. It would appear to be more of the same.

    As a huge proponent of mass transit, it is sad to see that it has become overrun with self serving individuals. Someone explain how more appointees given seats for political favors will benefit the organization more than elected officials who must answer to the public for their decisions.
