Failed Image. Failed Message.
Mayor Anderson in the Tribune : "My message is simple: We can clean up our air, improve the public health, save open spaces, increase the amount of time commuters spend in social and leisure activities, and save significant amounts of money per month for households along the Wasatch Front by providing more mass-transit options and decreasing dependence on the automobile." That is simple. And reasonable. And I agree with it. But where was this "simple message" Mayor Anderson when his State of the City Speech became a moronic bumper sticker war with Davis County, his work on legislation affecting the city became petty feuding with the legislature, and replacing unfriendly council members became a bizarre new religious divide? Mayor Anderson's image and message are out of control and it's his own office's fault.
