Soccer Stadium in Sandy
A Deseret News editorial today took on the proposed RSL stadium in Sandy. Ever since the stadium was announced as going to Sandy, it hasn't found any friends in Utah's press. In an online chat with RSL fans, General Manager Steve Pastorino declared the project was moving forward quietly and "any negative perceptions are being fueled by the media and not representative of what's actually happening." His comment that "We're making a lot of progress, quietly, to move this proposal forward" underscores the primary problem with Sandy's political boss Mayor Tom Dolan. He just quietly does things. Makes deals, gets things done. Beyond the public eye. Mayor Dolan is a back room man in a position of public trust. He's refusing any debate in his re- election bid which underscores his contempt for open government. Still many come to his defense by declaring him a man that gets things done. But what things? And for whom does he do them?
