    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.

    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.

    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.
