Mayor Corroon

Mayor Peter Corroon was on KCPW's Midday Metro talking about the RSL stadium. He clarified that although the stadium money would be paid in the form of a 20 year bond. I think it was significant that he had no real answers. The whole gist of the conversation was that there were no hard numbers, but the County "supports" RSL. I think Mayor Corroon is really kind of being led along in this. He insists that if the deal isn't sweet enough for the County, he'll refuse to hand over the cash. But in doing that, he upsets the Utah Legislature and severely upsets Sandy Mayor Tom Dolan. And who's one of Mayor Dolan's major allies? The powerful County Councilman Randy Horiuchi. It would be bad for Mayor Corroon to make enemies within his own government and party. So I'm not holding my breath that Mayor Corroon is going to be able to hold his ground. His criteria for an acceptable project is weak anyway, most likely we'll see Mayor Corroon sign off on the project no matter what the form.
