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 PressBackers.com, 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

Eight governmental e-mails and texts you won’t see if/when HB477, restricting open records to the public, goes into effect:

8. “Can we get the rights to ‘Duh. Winning!’ for next year’s campaign? Make some calls.”

7. “Of course, in South Salt Lake. Where else would you dump an old washing machine?”

6. “Re: South Salt Lake: Hey, the people of this town elected me to clean it up. Dump your trash in Murray, please.”

5.
“Since I take my orders directly from God, there’s no digital trail anyway.”

4.
“Re: South Salt Lake: Sorry, I forgot we don’t have to use ‘washing machine’ as code for ‘dead escort’ anymore.”

3.
“As long as it’s centrally located, one State Liquor Store should be enough for the sinners, uh, people. Right?”

2.
“We’ll be off-planet in our taxpayer-funded escape shuttles long before constituents find out about the Doomsday Meteor.”

1. “What’s The Salt Lake Tribune complaining about? They endorsed me for governor, for heck’s sake.”
