Civility and Politics

From today's Tribune: The two candidates for West Valley City Mayor are neighbors. So there will be no campaign signs within a designated area. It's nice to see civility in politics, especially campaigns. I'm glad they're preserving peace in their neighborhood. The Mr. Hyde side of me saw the other side of this coin during the Huntsman/Matheson gubernatorial love- in last year: Civil politics is boring politics.

I propose a cage match - just to make thing interesting.

I happen to live in that same neighborhood (i.e., Stake), and I know both of the candidates. After having spoken with the one about his candidacy. The other passed by us. Wow, I needed a knife to cut through the tensions. But they talked to each other pleasantly as I left.

Oh, just as a note. I am supporting Adam Leffler for Mayor.
