West Jordan - Much ado has been made lately about the divide on the city council. It’s come to a head with the “firing” (or “administrative leave” if you will) of city attorney Jeff Robinson. I have heard from some residents that the whole thing is “embarrassing” and that the council needs to “stop bickering and get on with the business of [running the] city” and that we should “vote them all out and start over.”

I can understand the above sentiments. However, I don’t think it’s a matter of incumbency that is the issue. when (and if) certain council members (the mayor is a council member in our form of government, and nothing more) act outside their scope of influence or authority, it is absolutely right for the other council members to call out the guilty parties. These matters need to be investigated, and action needs to be taken if it is warranted. The matter should not be swept under the rug, so to speak, just so residents are not embarrassed at the bickering.

I’m not accusing anyone of any wrong doing, malfeasance, misconduct or otherwise. But if such is occurring, it needs to be investigated and action needs to be taken to censure or remove the guilty party(-ies). Sometimes we need to wade through the difficult or the embarrassing in order to do the right thing.

Mr. Scott and Mr. Lewis,

I would like to thank you for your articles about our city leaders in the West Jordan City Journal.  It is important for residents to be aware of what is happening. I will be taking Mr. Scott’s advice and attending the city council meetings to see it for myself. It’s unfortunate that we have to babysit our leaders.

Please continue to keep the residents updated.

Sincerely,
Ruth Shaw
