The Salt Lake Tribune endorsed Dr. Joe Jarvis over Senator Scott McCoy in the 2nd District. I disagreed with one of their reasons. While they noted gays were "underrepresented" at the statehouse, they said that Utah already had a "gay" legislator but no "doctor" legislator. I don't think that a representative has to share your lifestyle/ profession to politically represent you. While it's great to have a diversity of backgrounds, etc. on the hill, this is a flawed approach to democracy.
