Greg Neft, KSL NewsradioA year-long power struggle between Bluffdale's mayor and city council goes before residents today.
Some we spoke with had choice words for Mayor Claudia Anderson.
One Bluffdale resident said Anderson was too much of a dictator. Another resident said, "The mayor has handled things in a very high-handed manner." A third resident said she was not impressed with what Mayor Anderson has done.
In fact, everyone KSL Newsradio spoke to at the polling site backed a Bluffdale City Council plan to have a city manager run things.
Both parties have fought, and Lenisse Andreson wants that to end. She says, "They both need to grow up, the city council and Claudia, and start running this like a city."
The mayor's position is that she actually would be more accountable to voters because she's elected. The mayor's camp has run radio ads on KSL.
