“After 12 years of being governed by former state legislators, I believe Salt Lake City needs a mayor who knows how the city government actually works and how to deliver real results for city residents. That’s why I’m endorsing Erin Mendenhall for mayor.
“Erin and I don’t always agree, and I still think she asks too many wonky questions during Redevelopment Agency meetings, but she is willing to sit at the table and have the tough conversations. She is willing to listen, learn, compromise and work together. Through our own tough conversations we have developed a strong working relationship through truly difficult times. Erin has worked hard to build relationships in the community, with the county, and with state leaders that she will put to work for us. She would be ready to make a real difference for the city on Day One.
“If we want the city to deliver better results, we need a mayor with the right kind of experience. Erin Mendenhall has that experience and will make a terrific mayor.”
