Janneke House Doesn't Know Her Opponent, Doesn't Understand Her Endorsments
Quoted from Janneke House campaign website: "Eric [Jergensen] needs to be called out for not speaking out clearly on his position on gay rights" So what does this mean? Well, it means Janneke House is confused by her endorsement from Equality Utah and that she doesn't know her opponent. Equality Utah has in the past praised Councilman Eric Jergensen for his work on the council in support of their shared agenda. Specifically, he has been praised by Equality Utah for co- founding Salt Lake City's first Human Rights Commission. More recently, SL Metro: Utah's Gay and Lesbian Biweekly Newspaper included Councilman Jergensen in an article titled "Candidates Support Gay Rights, Benefits". On top of that, Councilman Jergensen has co- sponsored a plan that would guarantee benefits for domestic partners and is more likely to be in place for families long before the Mayor gets out of court. Completely ignoring (or more likely not knowing) the Councilman's record Janneke House has attacked without providing a single supporting bit of evidence. You know, evidence. Like what I just gave supporting the Councilman's record. Janneke House must be confused over the endorsement by Equality Utah. This organization is politically heavily invested in Mayor Anderson. That is why she has their endorsement. It's founder and chair, Jane Marquardt, was Mayor Anderson's first choice for this race. She has also contributed over $6,000 to the Mayor over the past few years.
