Default Re: UN Plaza: Public Diplomacy Edition

Jim Murphy mentions the Mayor of Salt Lake City's strong interest in environmental issues. I don't know if he was referring to the previous one or the one who took office on Jan, '08 but it looks like they are both of the same mind.

I was surprised to find out a couple of years ago that although Utah votes overwhelmingly Republican in general elections, Salt Lake City is primarily Democratic. For those interested in their very colorful previous mayor, Rocky Anderson and all that he did, check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Anderson.

There is also a shorter but interesting sketch of his successor, Ralph Becker, on the same site. Seems as though before his political career, he served as a garbage man, firefighter, and ranger for the park service.

I guess that you could say Salt Lake City is the Austin of Utah.
