EPJ - Skull Valley, UTMarch 8, 2019 7:28 a.m.Another modus operandi
charade from our Dear Leaders in the Legislation—just like the prison
move."We need to stop the influence of money in our political
process! ""Elected representatives should remember they are
public servants."How can they remember that they are public
servants when many of them believe they will be a god someday?
@ Birder, The prison move was the template for the inland port. Ignore the
taxpayers and do as you please.
Here's what smells. First the state steals a huge chunk of SLC from the
city, without compensation, while expecting it to continue to provide services.
Then it turns out this is to create a central transit hub of a port increasing
rail, road and air travel into our already polluted valley. And the appointment
of the unelected authority leadership has already had one set of scandals and
replacement of an early board member.This overblown rail head is not
needed, it's certainly not needed in this valley where it will just
contribute more and more to the pollution of the air we breathe. If it's
such a great idea put it elsewhere int he state where the rails and the freeway
run close together. Ogden and the BDO. Down in Utah County or else where.It started by theft of land and tax revenue from SLC and has gone
down-hill from there.
"" I say something is rotten in the way this whole inland port thing
came into being and is progressing." Of course. It's the
Utah GOP backroom deal way to fund their pet projects. Most other states, they
be investigated by the AG. In Utah, the AG is their partner
The Inland Port and the prison move are perfect examples of a disregard for the
will of the people and of the wanton spending of taxpayer money.
"Something's rotten with the inland port"In other
words, everything is going as planned by the good ole boys.
Here's an idea...why don't you use this forum to tell us what you
think smells bad, instead of simply saying it smells bad. Add credibility to
yourself by detailing your concerns.
Another modus operandi charade from our Dear Leaders in the
Legislation—just like the prison move.We need to stop the
influence of money in our political process! Elected representatives
should remember they are public servants.
Hear, hear!I also am generally unlikely to agree with Mayor
Biskupski, but on this issue, she is 100% percent right. We have one thing in
common - both we the people and the Mayor have clearly been left out of the
decision-making process when it comes to this corrupt inland port.
