Councilman Dale Lambert To Retire
I met Councilman Dale Lambert when he was still Candidate Lambert. He's a good guy. It's too bad that so often the people we need most in politics are the ones most able to set it aside. He promised one term, he delivered one term, and now he's gone. From the Tribune's interview with him: Tribune: Can council members who are LDS be unbiased when they vote on things that deal with the LDS Church? Councilman Lambert: "Do I think a member of the LDS Church on the City Council can act independently? I think my colleagues did, and I know that I did. I suppose you could reverse that question, given the seriousness of the religious divide: Can a non-LDS person serve on the council and, if a so-called church issue arises, can they be objective? I think for the most part the answer is yes as well."
