Letter: Inland Port Authority’s no-bid contracts? That’s Utah politics at its basic level.

(Chris Samuels | The Salt Lake Tribune) A QuayChain observation trailer stands outside the Union Pacific Intermodal hub in Salt Lake City, Thursday, June 2, 2022.

It should come as no surprise that the Inland Port Authority (IPA) was issuing no-bid contracts on its development projects. From the beginning the IPA has been nothing but a vehicle for legislators to funnel public funds to their cronies. It is Utah politics functioning at its most basic level. Hopefully, Utah voters will recognize this process for what it is and vote the offending bums out!

I am so tired of this structured looting of the public treasury.

George A. Hunt, Salt Lake City
