Letter: Tired of the same old Utah politics? Time to vote for change

Oct 7, 2023

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." (quote attributed to Einstein)

If you don't like subsidizing (via the taxes we pay to the state) the decline of the Great Salt Lake as well as subsidizing our dirty air with rapidly approved open gravel pits and the ever expanding inland port, then stop voting for the same legislators who ignore our health and the health of our planet. If you don't like subsidizing the proposed billion dollar gondola in Little Cottonwood Canyon, which will probably be used more by out of staters than our own populace, then why keep voting for the same people who make up a super-majority and thus really can do anything they want. Our crop of legislators are confident they won't be voted out.

Well, let's change that dialogue. And thank you, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for stating publicly not to vote straight party, but look closely at the candidates. We need action now and legislators who listen to the public. We are tired of sound bites and photo opportunities and then business as usual. Our ability to be realistically optimistic about our children's future depends on our action at the polls this Fall. Be the difference.
