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.…

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…Continue

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. These allegations are complicated and no doubt Jake is in damage control and trying to minimize the fallout from these issues. I would hate to be in his situation. That is just one of the reasons that I…Continue

I got into politics because of corrupt politicians that were lining their own pockets instead of doing what they were elected to do.
The lobbyist that paid for Rep. Anderegg's wife and Sen. Madsen's wife to fly to Europe and vactaion with them in Rome, Italy called me and told me how they paid for that vacation in Europe. The online reporting by Rep. Andregg and Sen. Madsen of that trip last fall does not match what the lobbyist told me. Rep. Anderegg has already been fined for…

One of the State Delegates recently said that they know and like both Rep. Anderegg and me, but they will vote for whichever is the most conservative. I present this comparison of both Rep. Anderegg and my rankings by the Conservative Advocacy Groups. There are still a few that have not been released yet, so I will update this when they are published.…

[At a cottage meeting at Jan Preece's house tonight, I was asked about my email newsletters and surveys. I suggested that I re-send one that I used during the past legislative session so that State Delegates could see what types of information I send out and how my surveys work. This is the exact email that I sent out, with the addition of this text added to the top. All of the links should work except for the survey link. I will try out a sample survey and ask about County and State…Continue
