HUDSON: How Do The District 66 Candidates Stack Up On St. George?

I came across an interesting post on the St. George Facebook Page:

“The special election for House District 66 is this Saturday, Feb 21 and is incredibly important for our movement as this individual will represent the vast majority of St. George in the legislature.

Susan Nelson sent this mailer out detailing that she is “against a vote on incorporation” of St. George. Not just against St. George, but against a vote…

Buddy Amoroso for House of Representatives has been a huge supporter of St. George both in the public and on the metro-council since day one. He has gone above and beyond for this effort.

We believe Darrell Ourso for State Representative is in favor of the effort based on recent comments.

We do not know if Rick Bond for State Representative is in favor of our effort or not. We believe he was in favor in the beginning but have heard him say recently that he “didn’t know” anymore.

We are fighting as hard as we can to ensure you have the right to vote on this issue. Regardless of which candidate you support, exercise that right this Saturday, February 21 and vote in this very important election.”

Rick bond commented on the photo post:

He was then confronted more on the issue in that facebook thread

04 Feb. 19

but up to this point he has yet to reply to any of the claims that his position on the issue is different than he states based on this audio clip:

Buddy Amoroso also commented on the thread:
