Mayors And City Councils

The Deseret News has an editorial up today condemning legislation that would force cities to hire managers to take over many duties now performed by the Mayor. The editorial's most profound point, however, was only loosely tied to the original topic: "Utah's many cities have a lot of problems. But the political tug-of-war many mayors and city councils experience is a part of good, representative government." NO Mayor should EVER be allowed to stack the deck in the City Council. No matter how much you may like the Mayor, it's poor and dangerous politics.

Right. Only the LDS Church should be allowed to stack the deck.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. If you won't join 'em then get out.

"NO Mayor should EVER be allowed to stack the deck in the City Council."

NO Voting Population should EVER be allowed to stack the deck in the elected office of City Council.

I think it's important that we elect Eric Jergensen so the Lord will watch over District 3. Janneke House doesn't even hold the priesthood!

Funny that the legislators like to pry into city issues so much.

what's interesting about that is the way the legislature hates when the feds pry into their business.
