Dave Checketts Is DEAD Wrong

Dave Checketts called the Salt Lake County Government "dysfunctional" because they rejected the Sandy mega- development. He couldn't be more wrong. The actions of Salt Lake County has relieved and inspired citizens across the valley who for decades have felt they could not trust their government. A member of the Council told me that if we still had the 3 comissioner system, the stadium would have been built by now, the terms would have been bad for the County, and no one would have known how or why it was built. And no one would have been held accountable. Dave Checketts does not live here. He doesn't know the relief we feel at finally seeing the sun set on the tragically corrupt days of Horiuchi/Workman/Dolan.

Exactamundo. If there is something we can point to in demonstrating that the Council/Mayor system is superior to the old Commission, it is the whole stadium saga. And it is not a coincidence that one of the holdovers from the old Commission style of Government (Horiuchi) was the top player in all the insider horse trading. He was simply acting within the acceptable ethical confines of the old Commish.

The reason SL County government works is because of Mayor Corroon. It's Corroon's leadership and ethics that allow this form of governmnet to work. Other major counties should consider changing to this form of government. It's more transparent, and community minded.

I heard the same thing about Workman. If she were still in office the stadium would have been erected with no questions asked. Thankfully the only stadium hard ons we're gonna get will come from Randy and Joe.
