Rep. Lifferth only elected official in North West Utah County to vote against Tax Break for Facebook

In the end, Facebook chose to build their data center in New Mexico which had given even larger incentives to Facebook which is one of the biggest companies in the…

@Political_Jake, egregious Influence Salesman, taunts Gov. Herbert on influence peddling

I laughed out loud when @Political_Jake posted the "Available Jones" article that called out Governor Herbert on influence peddling.  I found the hypocrisy over the top, even by Jake's standards.



I responded on Facebook by posting the campaign donations that Jake has received. The entire post was promptly deleted by someone that support's Jake's double standard.…

May 18th Special Sesson and Interim Legislative day

Transportation Interim Committee Meeting

One of the main topics in Transportation Interim Committee was Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or Drones. Since there were a number of Drone Bills in the 2016 session, this provided an opportunity to have representatives from the drone industry to discuss many aspects of drones.

There was also a brief discussion of Utah's Open Meeting Laws which in turn brought up the recent Closed UTA meeting. I have asked a number of…

Jake has already admitted guilt and paid a fine for the allegations that he claims are false

For the record, Jake has already admitted guilt and already paid a fine as a result of these allegations, which he claims, are false.  If these allegations are false as he claims, then Jake should get a refund for the fine that he paid for not disclosing who paid for his trip to Europe.

That is just one of the reasons that I…
