Congrats to the Schools in my District on their SAGE scores

The SAGE test results are out. SAGE stands for Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence. These results are controversial because of the change to the Common Core Standards and corresponding curriculum. It is expected that the scores would be low at first and then increase as teachers and students adapt to the new standards.  That is the pattern that has occurred in other states that have gone through the same steps before Utah. In my quick review of the schools in North West Alpine School…See More

"Long time friend and State School Board Candidate Joel Wright. He actually considered using the campaign slogan "Choose the Wright" but his wife vetoed that plan."

"Selfie with a real-live Democrat that lives in my district, Matt Everett. He is actually a very nice person. If all Democrats were like him, they would have greater representation in Utah State government."

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…

Prison Relocation Update #2

Posted by David Lifferth on October 30, 2014 at 6:06pm 0 Comments

[There is nothing proprietary about this content. It was sent out to my Prison Relocation Distribution List, but I wanted to post it here as well.]

I wanted to give some background on the Prison Relocation to help others understand the process. Nothing that government does is every quick or efficient. The prison relocation is just another example.

 

Here is the text of the bill that authorized the prison relocation process to begin:

Photos from tour of Utah Lake with the Utah Lake Commission

Posted by David Lifferth on October 25, 2014 at 8:26pm 0 Comments

I got to tour the northern half of Utah Lake with members of the Utah Lake Commission. The purpose was to review the progress on the Fragmites removal and other issues facing Utah Lake. Rebeca Call of both the Saratoga Springs City Council and the Utah Lake Commission was my tour guide as we rode on Air Boats.

Rep. Kay Christofferson and his wife Suzanne were on an air boat with Reed Price who is Chair of the Utah Lake Commission.

We also got to see both the toxic algae bloom and waht a beach on the north shore of Utah Lake look like.…

Photos from Eagle Mountain's Trick or Treat Village

Posted by David Lifferth on October 25, 2014 at 8:19pm 0 Comments

I gave away nearly 2,000 pieces of candy to the nearly 2,000 trick or treaters at the Eagle Mountain Trick or Treat Village today.  It was lots of fun and I met many of the young people and their parents today.

I wore my Terminator costume and explained that below my human skin is my metal skeleton.

There were lots of Elsas and Annas and Zombies and Witches. I got to sing the "Let it go" song with at least 30 Elsas.

My favorite costume were these Minions.  I told them I sure could have used them to help me during my campaign season.…
