    As some of you have read in the first S.A.F.E. program articles (found on the 2nd or 3rd news page)  three of the local elementary schools have been in need and have been asking the City of South Jordan for crossing guards and have been consistently denied due to funding issues. Well I have read the City budget since I am a candidate for the South Jordan City Council this year and there is plenty of room to find funding for budget for the crossing guards and I expressed this with the current South Jordan City Manager, whom I suspect is more concerned with infrastructure growth and building the tax base than he is of the safety of the children of South Jordan (yes I told him that directly).  Now I do think that the growth of infrastructure and building the tax base of South Jordan are extremely important to the future of South Jordan, however I believe that safety for all of the residents of the City of South Jordan (not just the children) is the more important…

.

     So since the S.A.F.E. program was published the City of South Jordan has scrambled and found the funding to get the needed crossing guards for Daybreak Elementary, Early Light Academy, & Eastlake Academy, so now all of the schools will have 2 crossing guards total to ensure the safety of the children of South Jordan are safe going to and leaving school every day. I just spoke to the Chief of Police of South Jordan this morning and the crossing guards should be in place in about 4 weeks!

If you’re current elected officials were doing their job this should have never been an issue!!!
