re: majmajor on May 24, 2018"Question: What does the SLC mayor

Available Jones & the ruling cabal in this state do? Besides
line their pockets through shady real estate deals, that is?
yeah cuss hey more pollution in salt lake county is what we all want right.
money over lives that's what the state is saying. salt lake is first or
second in bad air . this way we will be number one for bad air yeah. no planning
for water use or the worsening dry. spell we are in.
Once again republicans prove that 'local control' means what ever
level of control that THEY have. If they have control at the city council level
than that is where control belongs. County, state, or country...where they have
the power is exactly where power should reside. Power corrupts.Re-elect no one...ever. Politics should never be a career
I totally agree, Utah should take control. This is being developed with state
money and connections, and will affect a far greater number of residents than
just Salt Lake City.
The fact is, with the exception of those areas handled by the LDS Church--temple
square, city creek mall, conference center, effectively donating land for the
symphony, etc--Salt Lake City is a mess and has long been a mess.Decades ago it was SLC's over-reach to attack RKBA that lead the
legislature to adopt Utah's State Preemption law on firearms. Mayor
Anderson doubled the cost of the Legacy Parkway and prolonged traffic woes for
tens of thousands of Davis County residents with his lawsuits to delay that
road. The Gateway mall and gross incompetence with city parking and parking
enforcement, along with bike lanes devastated downtown businesses until the LDS
Church invested in the City Creek mall. Gateway, in turn, suffered serious
reverses as the SLC Mayor and PD allowed the mentally ill, drug addicts, drug
dealers, prostitutes, and johns, to take over the streets and sidewalks in the
area. Mayor Becker fired police chief Burbank over mishandling of complaints
from female officers. Mayor Biskupski and her Police Chief, Mike Brown grossly
mishandled the police abuse of Nurse Wubbels.SLC should have zero
say over this port. De-annex the land from SLC and be done with it.
Mayor Jackie Biskupski has been a failure for SLC. Since she has come to
office, this paper has story-after-story of people that consistently disagree
with her about simple agreements that they may-or-may-not have with her. The Speaker of the Utah House (from Draper), has more influence about
most SLC issues (new homeless shelters, law enforcement, cleaning up the old
shelter...) then the mayor thinks about. She can't agree with UTA about
light-rail to the new SLC Airport Terminal agreement. The federal government has
more influence on a bankrupt city golf course...Question: What does
the SLC mayor do? She isn't doing anything for SLC.
Seems funny that Herbert is overreaching to make the city do what he wants.
Seems familiar but I can't put my finger on it.
This is a woman who's first act as mayor was to fire every SLC employee who
didn't agree with her politically and socially. Even Rocky Anderson made
deals with people he didn't agree with if it was a benefit to the city.
And this inland port has tremendous potential to be a benefit to the city and
all of Utah, but SLC should not be the controlling body. This is a Utah wide
project and SLC only makes up 250,000 of the 3 million people in Utah. The
mayor seems willing to kill the entire deal and hurt both SLC and Utah if she
doesn't get her way. But then again, that's who she always has been.
Mayor Biskupski doesn't speak the Governor's English. Seems a pity for
Salt Lake City.
