JUST LET PINGREE PERFORM HIS JOB

SHARE JUST LET PINGREE PERFORM HIS JOB

Look what's in the news - mutiny at UTA. Allegations are flaring. Secret meetings behind closed doors. Who do you think is involved? Our UTA board members. We also have our county commissioners playing games with the target being John Pingree, UTA's general manager.

Whatever happened to the rules of the game? Did our board members and commissioners forget about the Sunshine Law? That little law that was put into place to protect us from exactly what is going on. UTA issues should be discussed among board members at scheduled meetings. Board members having secret meetings to oust their boss are indeed breaking the rule.The problems that UTA is having are no different than other companies of UTA's size. No company goes without problems. For every complaint given there is always a positive. John was hired 19 years ago to do a job. Let him do it with a board that works together rather than against him.

In my opinion this is only about control. Control over taxes, money, power and light rail.
