I have made clear my great esteem for and fear of Pete Ashdown. A few weeks ago, he brought up the Salt Lake City Council's resistance to Utopia as a reason to not support Councilman Eric Jergensen in the District 3 race. So obviously, I wanted to know more. Pete was right, Councilman Jergensen voted to reject UTOPIA , but... I doubt UTOPIA will be brought up by Mayor Rocky Anderson's side for one simple reason. Mayor Anderson made the recommendation that the City Council decline participation in Utopia.

Wow! A decent statement by the Utah Business Taxpayers Association. Holy Toledo!!!

Some of the cities with more established tax bases (sales tax) could afford it better. My city with a small tax base could not--it would have meant handing over almost all of our sales tax revenue. Still, it provided entertaining city council meetings for a while.
