Is South Salt a better place under the current Mayor and City Council?

  South Salt Lake Mayor Cherie Wood gets paid $118,497, which includes both salary and benefits. She is the 7th highest payed mayor in the entire state. By comparison, the mayor of Salt Lake City, Ralph Becker, makes $131,723 to govern a city that has over 186,000 people, seven times the population of our city. What justifies this excessive salary? Remember, this is your tax money.

      South Salt Lake City has the highest paid Police Chief ($185,295) and Fire Captain ($159,928) in the state of Utah. In fact, the eight highest paid employees of South Salt Lake are paid more than Utah's Governor Gary Herbert ($149,511). South Salt Lake's water and sewer rates went up this last spring. Part of the Mayor's salary as well as that of other employees comes from water and sewer funds. Why? Again, what justifies these excessively high salaries in our small city of 23,000 people.

      The current Mayor and City Council (including Boyd Marshall) authorized the sale of a property that was owned by current by current City Council member Casey Fitts. Why did the city need to acquire this property? Most people would call this a conflict of interest so why did the City Council and Mayor allow this? The sale price was around $400,000 - of your tax money.

     The current Mayor and City Council used $92,000 in tax money to promote the Granite High School Bond. That was illegal. Tax money cannot be used to promote any politcian or political issue such as a bond.
Reference:
1. Gorrell, Mike. "Did South Salt Lake break law pushing bond?  The Salt Lake Tribune, Nov 4, 2011

    Boyd Marshall has been on the City Council for 14 years representing District 2. Has he served long enough? I think it is time for a change.

    After the bond was voted down the Mayor and City Council continued to lease Granite High School from the Granite School District for another $500,000. Our city's lease of Granite High expired in March of 2013 and the ownership of the school was returned to the Granite School District - which means that we lost the entire $500,000. Is that being fiscally responsible?

3. Martin JM. Granite High $25 million tax obligation bond fails after recount."  South Salt Lake Journal Jan 2012.

        According to the above articles, Mayor Cherie Wood knew that the $25 million  dollar bond was not enough to buy and renovate Granite High School. A second tax increase would be necessary to complete the renovate of the school. The public was misled into believing that the $25 million bond would be enough to finish the project. Even after the bond was defeated the Mayor and City Council were still planning to buy Granite High School anyway. They did not care that the citizens had voted down a tax increase - they had their own agenda. In the end $2 million of our tax dollars were lost trying to acquire Granite High School.

       The Current city administration conducts a large portion of city business behind closed doors. Why? 
These people are representatives of the citizens of the city, why are they conducting city business in secret?
What do they have to hide? One current City Council member stated in a City Council meeting that conducting city business was much easier to do when the public was not involved. Is this proper representation?

     Mayor Cherie Wood, Boyd Marshall and the rest of the current City Council have tried desperately to significantly increase your property taxes. They have already succeeded in raising our water and sewer rates to fund salaries that we cannot afford. The citizens of South Salt Lake need new leadership. We now have the opportunity to choose a new Mayor and fill three City Council seats with new people that will listen to the public, who will be responsible with our tax dollars and will stop using deception and secrecy to further their own personal agendas. Its is important that everyone votes. The $25 million dollar bond failed by only 5    votes - your vote matters!

"South Salt Lake City needs to Elected a New Mayor"

The Residents of South Salt Lake are Wonderful. The Mayor Cherie Wood is the Worse Major the city of South Salt Lake has ever had since I have live in South Salt Lake. There no way she is Worth a Salary of $118,497. South Salt Lake City is full of Pay-Day, Title Loans, Used Car Lots, Bars and Strip Clubs.  There are not really any places to go shop in 
South Salt Lake but Reams to Grocery Store that it.


Right now she is acting like she cares about community activities before the Election August 13, 2013. She finally started the Groundbreaking for the Central Park Community Center which should been done over two year ago. 

 If Major Cherie Wood is Re-Elected do not be Surprised, that we get the State Prison. South Salt Lake City needs a Mayor and City Council members that cares and has leaderships that that will bring the Community Together.
