If Gov. Herbert were the Governor Utah really needs, he would have told the Utah
County folks to discuss it with the Tooele folks and come to a compromise.
Maybe, one nominee from Tooele and one from Utah County. Bear in mind, that the
population of Utah County and its integration with Wasatch Front transportation
infrastructure is much greater than that of Tooele County. So, Tooele would,
theoretically, have to be more conciliatory than Utah County.But,
Gov. Herbert is not really up to the challenges we face, the future we must plan
for.So, he donned his familiar infightin' duds and jumped into
fracas opposite those hated conservative extreme Republicans. Councilman Lee
obviously didn't understand the principle of intermodalism, a sine qua non
of future=oriented planning, because Lee was against the Provo-Orem BRT
boondoggle, and likely the absurd and illegal 10-year free fare
double-boondoggle UTA sold to UVU and BYU. A fact that most folks
don't realize is that the Governor ignored the requirements of the rather
goofy HB138 that began this mess, by not doing the obvious. That would have
been to turn the nomination process back to the counties.
