Being endorsed by Mayor Anderson is not the same as being Mayor Anderson. When we interviewed Keith Christensen Friday, he talked the whole time about how we should remember SLC Mayor is a non- affiliated race. I completely agree with him, and I believe the non- affiliated status should be strictly respected by candidates. But Mayor Anderson just finished a City Council battle in District 3 where his loyal base argued for months that Party affiliation DOES matter even in a non partisan race. All we heard about was party affiliation. The campaign's admitted strategy was "I'm a Democrat, I'm a Democrat, I'm a Democrat. Did I mention I'm a Democrat?"
