Remember the election a few months ago? What about those allegations of electioneering charged against both sides in the school bond election?
If you recall, the Park Record reported, “According to a press release issued late Wednesday by the county attorney’s office, there have been reports of school district representatives potentially using public funds to campaign in favor of the bond, which would violate the Political Activities of Public Entities Act. The county attorney’s office has also received reports that opponents of the bond may have violated the Utah Election Code by campaigning on school property.”
I haven’t heard anything about it since. Perhaps it was just a warning shot fired from the county attorney toward both parties. Perhaps it has all been forgotten?
I just hope the lesson learned isn’t that anything goes, even if it violates state law. If so, that could make for some ugly future elections.
