Commentary: Eagle Mtn. Mayor Jackson's Victory

Eagle Mountain Mayor Heather Jackson recently told the Daily Herald the following (see previous post for the story): "Less than 2,000 of the city's registered 7,500 voters turned out, which Jackson said probably shows that many residents are comfortable with the status quo."

To quote the song, "Sorry Ms. Jackson", this in no way shows residents are satisfied with the status quo. Mayor Jackson said it herself, "And with the flu going around, I can't tell you how many people were saying they were too sick,"(Daily Herald).

Mayor Jackson, if anything, this shows that with those that did vote, Eagle Mountain is a divided city. So enjoy your 33 vote victory and feel free to make sure Coop's Market gets built before the end of your new term.
