South Jordan Mayor Dave Alvord said the vast majority of feedback he's heard from South Jordan residents has been anti-split. Alvord has come out publicly against a split.
That's not to say, of course, that everyone is against such a move. Newton said it seems to him that many South Jordan residents are unhappy with the district, and he believes they may be in favor of a split if they had more information. Newton had been in favor of putting the question on the ballot, but said Friday he's now torn. He said he's now willing to stick with the district for another year to see if it can improve.
