Big Talker

Picked this up at KCPW To emphasize the importance of Pioneer Park's renovation, Mayor Rocky Anderson said: "if I have to run again for mayor to make Pioneer Park happen, I will do it." Whatever. 1) You'll lose anyway, so big deal 2) Even if you win, you'll just have a couple more years enjoying your travelling bully pulpit, go through a few dozen more staff, and then when Pioneer Park still is unfinished, you'll loudly blame whoever is most convenient and be on your way. Don't waste our time.

I still remember fondly when Didi Corleone shut down Pioneer Park to keep out the drug enthusiasts.

I will say that things have improved in said park since the Rockster took over. That might be the Gateway fiasco's fault, however, not our angry mayor's efforts.

I wish Rocky would lose if he ran again. I'm not so sure about that. I didn't think anyone should have re-elected him to a second term, but they did. If you count his accomplishments as mayor, you'll come up with almost nothing. Orange flags don't count as an accomplishment.

While I think Pioneer Park needs to be revamped so that non-homeless people/drug users can utilize the park more, I don't know that his way is the best.

Moreover, even liberal Democrats are tired of Rocky, so I don't see how he is going to win reelection.

The best thing for Pionner park...sell it to a private developer...then the city can make some money, the homeless will move on...and deomcrats won't have a place to gather on Saturday mornings, they can shop at Smith's like the rest of the world

I love that Rocky is "threatening" to run for mayor. Like that is going to change how people view the renovations at pioneer park. "Oh no...I am going to support the pioneer renovations or else Rocky will run."

I'll vote for Rocky if he runs again. I love the way every time he says anything, another wingnut's forehead vein bursts.

Go, Rocky! Irritate the Right! (Most of them don't live in Salt Lake City anyway.)
