We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

The "No Donations to Campaigns" Campaign



Farley Anderson of the Independence Party is taking a bold approach in running for Governor. He asks you don’t donate to his campaign.---

Farley Anderson's Independence Party runs a shoestring campaign based on limited government and states rights. Not necessarily a unique platform these days, but hey it’s popular at least. And if the platform isn’t unique Anderson’s new pitch is. Anderson and Independence Party candidate for Lt. Gov. Steve Maxfield are asking voters not to donate to their campaign, but instead donate to charity.

It’s a pretty simple message that could really resonate with many Utahns sick of the corrupting influence of money in politics and would rather see that money help the less fortunate. A fine message indeed—if only they had enough money to really broadcast the message to the voting public…

The video slideshow is pretty amusing and not just because of the bow tie shots of Gov. Herbert and Lt. Gov. Bell--there’s also a cameo shot of Herbert and Rick “The Free Capitalist” Koerber in there.

If you need a little more context on Anderson as a candidate check the video out below. If he can govern as well as he can blast Pepto Bismol bottles with a six-shooter, then he’ll make a damn fine governor.
