John Adams famously said once that "Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence."

 

The recent Legal Analysis of the Transfer of Public Lands Movement by professor Robert Keiter and his research associate John C. Ruple, of the Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources and the Environment,…

We have not been well represented. You see, your elected representative, David Lifferth, has forgotten his Oath of Office, has voted us into deep bondage by taking us deeper into debt. He has forgotten who put him there. He thinks that he does not have to be accountable to the people.

Prison Relocation Update #5

Posted by David Lifferth on November 1, 2014 at 7:31pm 0 Comments

Before I could do my own lookups, Colby Curtis was able to send me this message with a list of media reports: (Thanks Colby!)

Saw your email. Great news about the lobbyist.

Here is the ABC4 story which was very well done: http://www.good4utah.com/story/d/story/prison-relocation-planning-bears-setback/34008/eqlsUtgVfk2cso06dAkDGw

The KSL story is here:
http://www.ksl.com/index.php?sid=32166386&nid=1070

Both have videos as the media really wanted to talk to citizens. We coordinated and made sure everyone tried to make logical, not NIMBY arguments.

Thanks for everything!

 

Blog: Ride Along with Highway Patrol for Halloween DUI Blitz

Posted by David Lifferth on November 1, 2014 at 10:00am 1 Comment

I was invited to do a Ride Along with the Utah Highway Patrol. I rode with Officer Clanton. I gained a lot of respect for what these public servants do to keep our roads safe. I have always been a strong supporter of Law Enforcement, but seeing fist hand the way that they do their jobs and the daily risks that they face, I am grateful for the work they do.

My endorsement of my Chevrolet Volt

Posted by David Lifferth on October 30, 2014 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

I was recently asked to share how I feel about my 2014 Chevrolet Volt. This is what I wrote:

I am very pleased with my Chevrolet Volt. It gets phenomenal gas mileage. I regularly get 1,000 to 3,000 miles per gallon over a month's period of time.  Since I leased the car almost a year ago, I am averaging around 300 miles per gallon.  It is a very modern car with all of the latest bells and whistles.

 

It is a hybrid and so it does use a 4-cylinder gas engine when the battery is depleted. When the battery and gas tank are full, my Volt has a 400-mile range, so there is no range anxiety as there are in pure electric vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf.  I am leasing the car and leased it solely on its low cost of use use. I spend about 20% on electricity that I…

Photos from SR73&Pioneer Crossing traffic flow meeting with UDOT

Posted by David Lifferth on October 30, 2014 at 6:25pm 0 Comments

On Thursday I, along with Mayor Chris Pengra and Councilman Adam Bradley and staff from Eagle Mountain met with Terry Newell who is the Region 3 director for UDOT. 

The purpose of the emergency meeting was to address the traffic flow reduction caused by the new alignment of SR73 (Wride Memorial Highway) and Pioneer Crossing at approximately 800 West in Saratoga Springs.The new alignment had dropped the former 5 lane 'highway' to a single lane east and west. This caused failure at rush hour with traffic backing up on Redwood Road to north of Harvest Hills and on Lehi Main Street to I-15.

It does need to be noted that city officials from Eagle Mountain have warned UDOT and opposed the new alignment until there was additional north bound traffic capacity. Eagle…
