Question from constituent about emails about effectiveness of emailing legislators in other districts

I got a very good question about how effective an email to a State Senator or Representative in another district really is. Since many of the voters in my district are emailing members of the Prison Relocation Committee (PRC) and other State Senators and Representatives, he wanted to know how effective these emails are in persuading them on this issue that is very important to us.

A campaign contribution from one of John Walden's companies to me in 2005

Wendy Pendleton brought to my attention that I did accept a campaign contribution from one of John Walden's companies in 2005. I have previously denied that because I intentionally did not accept contributions from some developers. I don't remember accepting this contribution. I have been adamant about this because I intentionally did not accept some specific donations.

This is from my campaign disclosure when I ran for Eagle Mountain city council in 2005.  This shows that I…

After fielding many question from constituents I am sharing many of those answers in this blog.

Prison Relocation Update #10 - "I was against the prison relocation before it was cool"

Prison Relocation Update #10

This prison update is actually a “Prequel” with relevant information, but dating back 10 months ago.  My opposition to putting the state prison in my district is nothing new as you will see from the following blogs and news reports. I readily admit that this is a complex and dynamic issue, but if you followed me on social media or my blog site and participate in my frequent surveys then you would be better informed on this issue than if you don’t…
