There is no longer any need to worry about infrastructure improvements, clean air, clean water, water supply, affordable housing, nightly rentals, public lands, the transient room tax, the tailings clean-up, the Book Cliffs highway, a “boom or bust” economy or a new Utah State University campus. Just leave it to Mr. Wells and his five pals selflessly “fixing” Grand County government for the rest of us. Anyone thinking otherwise, like the citizens unwittingly voting three times to retain our current non-partisan form of government, deserves a good whacking and should probably be deported.
Since Grand County is on the road to redemption, maybe Mr. Wells can be loaned out to work his magic in San Juan County so that the horror of two non-Republicans being elected as county commissioners due to redistricting can be avoided. There can be no doubt that silver-tongued environmentalists are already colluding with Native Americans to rig the vote to make sure the county’s saintly seventh-generation settlers will be disenfranchised.
We are so incredibly lucky that Mr. Wells and his Republican cronies will go to any lengths to regain or maintain power for us. I can think of no other time where the phrase “the ends justify the means” ever rang truer. How shameless were we for thinking that how we vote matters when obviously Curtis knows best.
