Salt Lake County Democrat News and Info...

   I finally found the Salt Lake County Democrats Precinct information, most of the residents in Daybreak and the surrounding areas are part of Legislative District #50, and the Chair person for the district is:

Frank Cordova

Che2005@aol.com 

.

   I am sorry I didn’t have this information until today; there was some confusion on my part as I was looking on the Utah Democrat Website and not the Salt Lake County Democrat website. So eventhough I am a Republican, I always try to be “fair and balanced” ;-) so I am encouraging all Democrats to reach out to their legislative district chair person and get involved.

.

   More importantly, we all are different and may have different opinions and ideas, which makes us great, YET first and foremost we are ALL Americans; and never forget hundreds of thousands of Americans before us gave their lives for our freedom and liberty. And one of our most cherished freedoms is our right to VOTE, so please whether you are Republican or Democrat get involved and at the minimum get out and VOTE, it is more than a freedom or a right, it is your duty as an American.

.

   I also want to thank Christian Burridge (a Daybreak Resident) who is running for the Salt Lake County Council at large seat this year for getting involved an being part of the political process, he is a good American. If anyone wants to find out information on Christian or wants to help support Christian please visit his website at: http://www.christianburridge.com/christianburridge/Welcome.html

JSD Numbers and GOP Representation News…

   As I was talking to some friends at the GOP Caucus last night and was floored when I realized that Barry Newbold (The JSD Superintendant) has a higher salary ($213k per year) than any elected Congress person, Senator, or Governor in the ENTIRE United States, the only elected officials at that level or higher who make more are the President of the United States ($400k per year) and the Vice President of the United States ($221k per year). In my opinion that is beyond ridiculous, why and how could this happen? The Superintendant in the Canyons School District makes $175k per year, if Newbold took a pay cut to $175k per year, to be inline with that or to be "competitive", that would save $38k per year which could pay for another teacher and perhaps a part time aid, the little things do add up...

.

   This is unacceptable, especially when the children of the Jordan School District are going to be having to adjust to the changes of the current budgets issues by losing programs and teacher’s aides, etc.  Do you feel okay with this? Not me, and this is just the tip of the iceberg, more info to come of the fiscal abuse at play in the JSD leadership.

.

   Rumor has it that Superintendant Newbold gets a $250 per month clothing budget, wow (NOT sure this is a fact or not...I am getting the expanded budget for the JSD to see if this is in fact accurate or false, there are many things that could be hidden in the main budget which is vauge in many areas).

.

   Moving on, as most of you know the GOP and Democratic Parties had their Caucus meeting last night and the turnout was huge. My precinct 3524 (link to precinct map) has some new GOP leadership and Delegates (see below):

Some Teacher Jobs Saved

By www.oursouthvalley.com, on 12-03-2010 10:23

   Rep. Jim Bird of West Jordan announced that Senate Bill 295, the bill that would allow the Jordan School District to use building money to pay teachers, has passed.

.

   As many of you know, the Jordan School District has a $30 million deficit and had announced they would be forced to lay off 500 employees including 250 teachers.  The passage of this bill will allow the district to use around $10 million dollars for teacher salaries, potentially saving some jobs.  The governor does have to sign the bill, but he is expected to do so.

.

   The school board will have the ultimate say in exactly how those funds will be spent, but Superintendent Newbold told the Trib he thinks retaining teachers will be a priority.

.

(thanks goes out to the www.oursouthvalley.com team for the article)
