Mayor Anderson Email

This email was distributed by Mayor Anderson using his city issued mayoral business email account. We all know the Mayor loves to toe this line. Did he cross it? He doesn't think so. But we could expect that. Hello! Is anything being planned for Bush's visit next week? There should be a major demonstration - with compelling speakers. There should be a collaboration of health-care-provision advocates, seniors, the GLBT community, anti-Patriot Act advocates and other civil libertarians, anti-War folks, pro-Social Security advocates, environmental advocates, anti-nuclear-testing advocates, and anti-nuclear-waste-shipment-and-storage advocates. Don't let him come to Utah and not see huge opposition, even in the reddest state! This would send such an important message. A tepid response will just send a message of apathy and resignation. Let the Bush Administration - and the world -- hear from Salt Lake City!!! The advocacy community should be organizing the biggest demonstration this state has ever seen! Please let me know what's being planned. Thanks - Rocky There will no doubt be something on this in the papers over the weekend.

Wow. I don't know if there's anything illegal anout using his official email like that but it is very interesting nonetheless. Where did you get the email?

It's somewhat amusing his knee-jerk reaction is to have a competing protest with a lauundry list of special-interest groups.

Rocky is a politician in the wrong state and a few decades too late.

Any normal person would be glad to protest Bush. This war is terrible.

I don't normally like Rocky, but he is right about Bush.

No fair, I only get crap-mail for Viagra and fake Rolexes.

If in fact Rocky used his official email for political purposes he should be impeached for misappropriating city funds.

If Anderson used his city address to support Bush … there wouldn’t be such an out cry.

Rocky is not running for reelection and Bush is never running for political office ever again.

Rocky and Bush disagree widely about policy and Rocky has cooperative responsibility to set policy for the city.

City dwellers often express their opinions in public gatherings.

Say what you like about Bush or Rocky or the war, but this is not a use of public funds for political ends. It is an expression of policy disagreement.
