Subject: Prison Relocation

Respectfully request that each of you do some soul searching. Take a serious look at the possibility of rebuilding the prison on site in Draper. This seems to meet all the criteria of the PRC's charter, except that an ill conceived law was passed saying that the prison couldn't stay in Draper. That ill conceived law should be rescinded, if Draper is indeed the best location for the prison. There are several factors that weigh into any decision on the future of the prison. Public acceptance, water availability, geothermal heating, proximity to employees and volunteers, power availability, and cost. It seems that Draper would be the number one choice on every one of these criteria. Finally, the language used by Mr Stevenson and Mr Wilson to citizens and voters was very disrespectful and condescending. They owe a public apology to the citizens of Utah.Of course the citizens are emotional. Of course the citizens of Utah believe that their elected leadership should listen to their thoughts and desires. If these two gentlemen think that this has been an open and above board process, they have strangely different definitions that I. Thank you for your time and attention.
