Stuck In The Middle

I like Mayor Peter Corroon. His style of open government and fair and honest dealings is EXTREMELY rare in Utah. Utah's politicians tend to use the following definitions: Open Government = Closed Government Fair and Honest = Mormon We all know they're not the same. Mayor Corroon has some problems though. He's being trapped in a no win situation. He's about to be forced by the legislature to sign a check to RSL for a stadium. If he does it, the RSL boondoggle will come down on his head when the County has to bail out the project. If he refuses, he loses his next election. On one side, he's pinned down by the Legislature. On the other side, he's pinned down by SLCo's most powerful mayor and it's most powerful Councilman, Randy Horiuchi. It's no surprise that the Mayor known for his openness is about to have his career ended by backroom wheeling and dealing. IT'S YOUR GOVERNMENT! RESTRAIN THEM! Because they REFUSE to restrain themselves.
