Part Two... In a series...
Think you know where Politician Morgan Philpot
stands on the important issues?
Did you know that when Politician Morgan Philpot was in the Utah legislature …
He likened the 2002 education budget and those who benefited from it, as fat and lazy from ingesting "pork rinds and soda pop" years.
We're as fat as can be," he said in the Jan. 20, 2002 Deseret News. "The fact we're even worried (about revenue shortfalls) is ridiculous. And you as opinion leaders shouldn't be selling this garbage...it's political posturing and a joke. I'm sick of it."
And look at this voting record on behalf of Utah's Children:
Philpot said NO to funding education, he said NO to providing children the tools for financial literacy, and he said NO to school bus safety.
The proof is in his votes:
Voted against H.B. 3 Substitute, the Minimum School Program Act Amendments, which provided $24,785,000 in one-time educational appropriations.
Voted against HJR 15 to urge Utah school districts to promote financial literacy, from basic budgeting to financial investments, among school students. (49 Yes-13 No -13 Not present / not voting)
Voted against H.B. 85, requiring Utah school buses to meet federal safety standards. (41 Yes - 30 no - 4 not present/ not voting)
Voted against SB 156 to allow each local school board to adopt an emergency response plan for treatment of sports-related injuries, and provide implementation of the plan in each secondary school that has a sports program. (64 Yes -9 No -2 not present/ not voting)
Voted against HB 190 to restrict the use of cell phones by school bus drivers. (48 Yes -26 No -1 Not present / not voting)
