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.

Let's examine this "evidence" you have presented that supports the incumbent's record.

"Equality Utah has in the past praised Councilman Eric Jergensen..."
You linked to a document about the founding of a Human Rights Commission, I see no praise, nor even mention of Equality Utah.

"SL Metro...included Councilman Jergensen in an article..."
You have mistaken journalistic objectivity for support.

"Councilman Jergensen has co- sponsored a plan..."
Again, I see promises, not quantifiable support.

It seems to me that you, Ethan, are out of touch with Jergensen's record in regard to Equality Utah. Please convince me otherwise by revising your evidence.

Are you honestly saying that Eric is better than Janneke on gay rights issues? Puh-leez....

Yes, and he has a record to back him up. Janneke just showed up out of nowhere and promised to do what the Mayor says and is backed up by HIS ardent supporters.

Why am I supposed to be impressed by that?

I'd rather see a person stand by their record and be supported by a diverse group of people from the grassroots community.

Perhaps Janneke isn't a learned politico like Eric Jergensen... she seems to be a fresh breath of air however... and smarter. Eric has show his sincerity like that of what he used to be ... a used car salesman.

Hi, I've enjoyed visiting your blog. I am trying to get my zen mp3 players site up and running. At the moment I am concentrating on the Zen Touch and Zen Sleek. Sadly, the Zen micro does not appear to still be available from Creative.

I've certainly got some way to go before that site meets the standards of your blog.
