Jim Dunnigan and the Prison



Concerns about the prison relocation began as far back as 2013. City Weekly reported fears of conflicts of interest regarding unlocking land for development and connections to Sen. Niederhauser, who stood to profit from the prison relocation.

As discussions continued over the following years, public comment was not considered during prison meetings, and a 2015 poll showed most Utahns did not support the prison’s relocation.

What does this mean?

Jim Dunnigan voted in favor of prison relocation and said no to the majority of his constituents who did not support its relocation. It’s time to say no to Jim Dunnigan.
