SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The battle of the bumper stickers is being turned into a Salt Lake City fund-raiser.

Mayor Rocky Anderson spent just over 1-thousand dollars from his city budget to create 1-thousand bumper stickers with the message "I Love Salt Lake City."

The stickers come after Davis County commissioners handed out "I Love Davis County" bumper stickers to counter Anderson's State of the City speech.

The mayor's comments blasting automobile commuting and the proposed Legacy Highway have riled Davis County residents, who believe Anderson was picking on them.

Proceeds from the sale will benefit Salt Lake City's environmental programs. They can be purchased at City Hall.
