To the editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the citizens of Salt Lake City for making the United States Conference of Mayors annual meeting held June 10-15 a great success. Due to the generosity of financial sponsors, volunteers, in-kind donations, and helpful residents, we were able to showcase our city to over 170 mayors from around the county.Many mayors who attended the meeting have sent letters to me which are full of praise for our city. They commented on the warmth of our people and the cleanliness of our downtown and neighborhoods. The mayors were also in awe of our beautiful Rocky Mountain location.

Salt Lake City could not have hosted such a successful conference without the cooperative spirit used by the community. This conference positively enhanced the image of Salt Lake City and Utah as a great place to live and work. We should all be proud of our city and its wonderful people.
