Email from Constituent about Prison Relocation

Posted by David Lifferth on November 28, 2014 at 10:05am 0 Comments

I have received hundreds, if not a thousand or more, emails about the proposed relocation of the state prison to Saratoga Springs or Eagle Mountain.

This email is representative of the emails and has very clear and concise logical arguments. I have received permission from the sender to post it online.

Dear Representative Lifferth:



Thank you for your support in opposing the potential relocation of the Draper prison to the Saratoga Springs/Eagle Mountain area.  Some points that I feel emphasize why relocating the prison to our area is not a good idea include:



·         The potential site is bounded by Camp Williams to the north, Saratoga Springs to the east and south and Eagle Mountain to the south and west.  This area is presently unincorporated, but is prime area for either Saratoga Springs or Eagle Mountain to annex into their city boundaries.  In fact, Saratoga Springs’ General Plan indicates the intention to annex this…

Results of Constitutents survey of Proposed Legislation

Posted by David Lifferth on November 25, 2014 at 9:00pm 0 Comments

I try to stay ahead of proposed legislation by letting my constitutions share their thoughts and raise issues. I frequently turn these comments into questions in committee meetings. This is a valuable service for me as a representative.

  1. Legalizing Marijuana
  2. Firing Squad a a form of Death Penalty
  3. Global Warming
  4. Daylight Savings Time

Do you think that Utah should tax and regulate Marijuana the same way that we regulate and tax Alcohol?

Some Other Responses:

P: How can you ask this when one is prohibited and the other is allowed? Shouldn't we be talking first whether or not there is value to society in having Marijuana allowed for medical purposes or just open it up like Colorado. Are you asking if we should become like Colorado?…

Results of Constitutents survey of Prison Relocation

Posted by David Lifferth on November 25, 2014 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

Would you support the State Prison to be located in Saratoga Springs or Eagle Mountain?

Some Other Responses:

M: A prison belongs in the middle of nowhere and we have a lot of land like that in Utah!

D: Neither, I am not convinced we need to relocate. Seems like a waste of money to enrich a few. We should be working on solutions to lower our prison population. If the State could even begin to show that they can build a building without going overboard, i would be more amenable to new buildings.

R: We don't need a prison in an area of so many people

J: it is fiscal irresponsible to move the prison. The cost of keeping it at the Draper site is a fraction of the cost to move it to a site that the land would have to be purchased, along with putting in gas water sewer power storm drains new sub station and more. What about the wetland that is there? A BIG MISTAKE TO MOVE!!!!

A: I do not think…

Posted by David Lifferth on November 25, 2014 at 7:30am 0 Comments

I conducted a survey of the actively engaged voters in my district as to where they get their news and information. The results are in line with what I expected and very similar to how I consume News and Information.

  1. News Source & Type
  2. National News
  3. Newspapers
  4. Local TV
  5. Radio News

Which of these sources of news and information to you consider to be the most reliable and accurate?

Some Other Responses:

W: This is a tough question. I would rather have answered on a lichert scale, such as "I trust this news source to give me accurate and reliable information ... all of the time, more than 50% of the…

My opponent's campaign in the House District 2 Race sent the following email to voters:


Dear Voters of District 2,

Charles Christensen is a candidate for State Representative District 2, Utah. He is a constitutionally principled conservative. His platform is simple: limited government and maximum freedom!

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.

  1. 1.     David Lifferth failed the Vote Smart Political Courage test by refusing to provide voters with…
