Democrat Jay Seegmiller came out with an attack Thursday on his Republican opponent for the 2nd Congressional District Chris Stewart. Seegmiller called Stewart a hypocrite for accepting federal stimulus dollars and for refusing an invitation to debate.
Seegmiller squinted into the sun as he stood in front the State Capitol building, where he once served as Representative. He told reporters that it was here he learned that if you say something, you better mean it, or someone will call you out on it.
Some residents in Millcreek township say they lack a voice in many policy decisions and pay Salt Lake County too much for police and fire services. But others say the county is doing a good job of keeping taxes low and providing adequate representation. In the last two decades residents of Cottonwood Heights and Holladay decided to incororate. Now voters in Millcreek will decide if their community should do the same.
