Andrew Adams, KSL Newsradio Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson hasn't shied away from advertising his anti-war stance. He'll promote it once again at two upcoming events.

Saturday, Anderson will join the March on the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., then speak at an anti-war rally alongside Cindy Sheehan.

Anderson will already be in D.C. to speak at the George Washington University Law School at an environmental conference.

Monday he's back in Salt Lake for an anti-war march and rally.

Salt Lake City council member Eric Jergensen says that Rocky is simply gone too much to be an effective mayor.

Eric Jergensen: "There are just certain issues that have to be done with people face to face."

Mayoral candidate Nancy Saxton, who is also on the city council, says she's fine with Rocky out politicking, because the city operates more efficiently without him.

Nancy Saxton: "As a city council, I think things are working quite well, actually, in his absence. What he hasn't done in the past is allow them to do their job. He is doing that now."

Others on the council are more publicly supportive. They told KSL that it is Rocky's own time, and he can do what he wants with it.
