BREAKING: Brigham City Approves New UTOPIA Bonds by 4-1 Vote

Less than 2 hours ago, Brigham City voted in favor of the new UTOPIA bonds with Ruth Jensen casting the lone dissenting vote. They made their vote conditional upon approval by the remaining two pledging member cities, Orem and Murray, in a move similar to Centerville. With this vote, UTOPIA moves one step closer to securing the new financing and being able to move forward with its plans to continue construction in the RUS cities.

    I’m proud that these self-described conservative Republicans are going to ride this socialist ship all the way to the bottom.

  2. Paul says:

    Two questions for Andrea, 1) are you familiar with these folks enough to know that they are in fact “self-described conservative Republicans”, and 2) how do you define socialism? The easy way out is to brand UTOPIA as socialism and therefore by some apparently unstated but understood standard, it becomes bad and wrong. Is my police department a socialist agency? How about my fire department? Parks? Water? Sewer? Streets maintenance? Pray tell, because they are also a function of my city government.

  3. Jesse says:

    Paul: Andrea is one of those types that can’t accept that the question of being in the business was resolved when the cities approved the original bonds. The question now is how to make the project work so that the cities either have a valuable network asset to sell or have a network that pays for itself. Trying to revisit the original question at this time by voting no is cutting off your nose to spite your face.
