The Duckworths (Sue and Carl) have represented this district for 12 years and we have nothing to show for it. Time for a fresh voice.

Mr. Fields will do a great job at making noise, and representing his tea party backers. But that is not Magna. Magna has changed a lot but it is still filled with hard working families, that will be better represented by Sue Duckworth. Sue is not interested in gaining the spotlight and making a name for herself, she is a humble representative of her district. More of our legislators she be that way.

Susan Duckworth has been a great defender of th schools on the Westside. We need her in the legislature to make sure our schools aren't harmed any further.

I watched Noel Fields speak at Matheson, he was very negative. Things are bad enough already, we need a leader who has a positive outlook on how to help move us forward.

Magna needs Noel Fields, not the other way around.

There is no "tea party" candidate in Magna as some represent. Just a dynasty candidate who has done nothing in her tenure (check her voting record) and a hard working small business owner who wants to bring the ENTIRE DISTRICT (not just Magna) into the 21st century. GO NOEL!

How is Noel not a tea party candidate? He started the Magna tea party. He has many views that just do not represent the vast majority of his district.

Sue Duckworth supports bigger government. She would like to see more social programs in place. She doesn't believe in a tobacco tax but is for a tax on soda pop? During her tenure, what has she done? My vote is for Noel.

Noel Fields is a small business man in Magna, and will do all he can to bring businesses here to create jobs. He opposes things like the UPD fee, and has formed a civic minded group called "Magna Concerned Citizens" to solve problems like these.

Sue Duckworth is political insider who has been very invisible in Magna. She hid the fact that UPD fees were coming. She protected the Government from the people, and will continue to do so. Do we want higher fees coming from the County and supported by Sue?

I spent just 15 minutes with Noel and learned more about the issues faceing Magna residents than I ever did listening to Sue. In fact, the only time I ever see her is right before an election. Noel is more accessible and listens better then any other politician I've ever meant.

Leonard - I saw Mr. Fields speak at Matheson as well. Just WHAT do you call negative? Talking about how the voters should vote for the BEST CANDIDATE? Or by laying out his resume (former Chamber of Commerce President, member of the planning council etc)?

Meanwhile the only thing that the current office holder could say made her qualified was that she has lived her for 53 years? People want real solutions to real problems - I agree....but just because you have lived in one place your whole life does not make you instantly qualified......

I am wondering what Noel Fields even does for a living. He says he is a businessman, but I can't figure out what kind of business he has or if he is ever even working there? The Duckworths have been around and are good people. I think they represent our district well. Maybe Mr. Fields just needs a few more years to get to know the area and show us what he can do.

Well, I see that a couple of people think that this statement is nuts, but she told me that she supports more social programs. She told me that she does not support a tobacco tax, but she does support a tax on soda pop. My question about what she has done during her tenure is a valid question. Look up her record. What legislation has she written and/or cosponsored? I'm not aware of anything significant. I'm not sure what about any of these is nutty. Please inform me where the nuttiness came in.

It sounds more like you need to do some more research. I bet that if you talked to Noel at one of the many events he has been attending, he would answer your questions.

You are right, the Duckworth's are good people, but just being a good person does not give them the expertise necessary to carry out the functions of a legislator. This is evident in what Sue has done for Magna. How much better off is Magna now that she has served that area? Not much better than it was before she took office. What legislation has she written? Do you homework and you will see my point.

I am trying to see both sides here. What has Noel Fields done? He seems to enjoy going to a lot of meetings and talking. He has been on things like a chamber of commerce, or tea party, but what has he actually worked to accomplish in those groups? I haven't heard one actual accomplishment, he just seems to acquire a lot of titles. I bet if he was a Democrat he would be facing these same "do nothing" attacks I hear being said about Mrs. Duckworth.

I personally am glad Sue Duckworth hasn't been passing a bunch of laws with her name on it. We have enough laws, it seems like every year the legislature passes a couple hundred more laws. We need less bills and government, not more.

What EXACTLY did Noel say that was negative? He has been speaking about oppertunities and challanges, not attacking. Also, show me, in the VOTING RECORD and LEGISLATIVE PROCESS what Ms. Duckworth has done to improve District 22. Why didn't she inform her voters about the UPD fees? THAT would have been helpful.

Ned, Have you met and actually spoken with Noel? He is not a Tea Party candidate. He is for taking responsibility and making sure we only spend funds we have. He is for business, for working folks who want to choose how to spend and save their money, and has a ballanced approach to the role of government. Which part of that is not helpful to District 22?

Noel works. He owns his business. He lives in Magna, pays the same taxes and fees as everybody else. A qualified and useful Represenative would be informing the people in the district of impending legislation and fees,(sneeky UPD ring any bells?) Sending out communication to ask what the community (ALL of District 22, not JUST Magna) wants and needs done, and be VISIBLE so people can go for help and clarification. That is not at all the situation now. Humility is not a lack of action, planned legislative initives, and speaking, TRUE humility is doing the work and not having a swelled head. District 22 needs to hire a WORKER not someone who warms a seat.

I still don't get how people keep saying Mr. Fields is not a tea party candidate, unless maybe they are just ashamed of the tea party. Go to www.magnaconcernedcitizens.org to see for your self. From the website:
"Magna Concerned Citizens: A Tea Party -
This grass roots movement was organized in 2010 by two business owners in Magna (Noel Fields and Donnie Sweazey)
