Easy Win 

Pin It

So, Michelle Facer Baguley thinks she’s breaking new ground running for office by not raising any money [“Not a Dime,” April 5, City Weekly]. Well, in just about any other race, in any other place, I’d say she was.

But in right-wing, strongly LDS and Republican Herriman, where they easily elected a guy whose most memorable piece of legislation was one giving Utah a “state gun,” I don’t think this is much of a trick. All she has to do is get out of the Republican County Convention, and she’s a shoo-in. Everyone there doesn’t spend much time thinking about who they are voting for or why—they just vote a straight Republican ticket.

I’d be surprised if she didn’t win in that part of the valley.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
