Megan Risbon, Mayor Anderson, and City Politics
Also in the story by Heather May, Mayor Anderson has said he'd endorse Republican Keith Christensen as a new mayor for Salt Lake City. What about Megan Risbon? It was only a few weeks ago Megan Risbon, Chairperson of SL County Democrats, was talking about how important it was to find Democratic candidates for the city's non- affiliated races. Ms. Risbon also implied she was coordinating with Mayor Anderson in finding a Democrat for the party to support against Councilman Eric Jergensen. Now Mayor Anderson, who was supposed to be tracking down Democrats for city races (and lets not forget his lectures on diversity in city politics), is backing a Republican Mormon. Something tells me Megan Risbon is on her own in this fight. It's best she drop it.
