Who will replace Rocky Andersen as mayor of Salt Lake City?
That, perhaps, is the most burning question to be partially addressed during tomorrow's primary election in the capitol city. There are also vital contests in dozens of other municipalities throughout Utah.
The man's been a lightening rod! You love him or you hate him! Question is for residents of Salt Lake: has the way Rocky has been running city hall - for good or for bad - got you sufficiently energized that you'll go to the polls tomorrow to help choose his successor?
The list of potential Rocky replacements will be narrowed from nine to two. Then the battle will really begin.
Don't sit on the sidelines. If you do - if you don't take the time to cast your vote - you'll have no right to complain with any credibility later on about who got in and how the city is being run.
Same goes for every municipality in Utah!
These are the elected officials closest to the people. They deal directly with potholes and zoning issues and emergency services. They raise taxes, authorize developments and set the tone for their community's ambiance.
Tomorrow's the day to have a direct say in who those officials will be. Let actual votes, not apathy be the deciding factor.
