Politics Goes Local

The Senate passed the bailout bill (that they had no business voting on) and with an added 315 pages of pork they might be exposing the real reason that the House did not pass it on Monday. All that extra sugar coating is likely to make the bitter pill go down easier. This reminds me why watching Washington politics is so depressing.

On a happier note, I met with Kyle Roberts last night and really enjoyed getting to know him better. I look forward to helping him to become my representative in the Utah Legislature.

I’m sure I will have some things to rant about on the national level, but I am going to focus on state and local issues for a while (like the proposed amendments to the Utah Constitution) and quit paying attention – as much as possible – to the coming Obama administration and the continued shenanigans that will remain rampant inside the beltway.

    So, can you provide a short list of reasons why you’ve chosen Kyle as your candidate? I just started reading up on the candidates. I know, shame on me for starting so late.

    In no particular order I would give as my short list:

    Kyle is committed to open and active communication with constituents.
    I was less than impressed with the tone of Becky’s campaign in the primaries – it was shallow and bitter (politics as usual).
    Kyle and Becky have positions that are indistinguishable on almost every issue but Kyle would not give more power to our dominant party.
    Becky is likely to be marginalized by her party once elected (as Sheryl Allan has been) while Kyle will have a party that will work with him even after he’s elected.
