County Councilman Randy Horiuchi
Give the man credit for publicly explaining his side of what happened at the (terrifyingly named) Fort Union Family Center. According to Councilman Horiuchi, the Salt Lake County Commission was correct on their zoning and RDA, but wrong in not ensuring the development was carried out according to law. I particularly liked this line: "I accept the economic kudos the project brought the county, but I must accept the regulatory responsibility for the outcome." That seems fair. This whole issue has brought up a common complaint about the Councilman: He's too chummy with developers and is too willing to tread into "grey area". I think the fact that Sandy Mayor Tom Dolan broke Republican ranks to endorse Councilman Horiuchi speaks volumes. We all know how Mayor Dolan operates.
