    If education doesn’t get you there on WED, your pocket book should. Take another look at your property taxes, the number one item (about half) on real estate taxes is for the schools. Isn’t it time for the very best value for your tax dollars?

      Really? Maybe you need to compare what Utah spends on education compared to the rest of the country. Then look at the state’s test scores. No state or county does so well with so little money. You are getting a bargain and the best value than any other county or state in the nation. Are you going there to complain that we spend the least per pupil in the country? Do you want to be more dead last than we already are?
