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

The Way It Is

The Red & the Blue

Chris Brozek, co-owner of the 300 South record store Slowtrain, is new to Salt Lake City, so he’s a bit more optimistic about local politics than many of Utah’s longtime liberals. He is not, however, alone in his excitement about the shift in power on a national level. In a sea of red, the blue is beginning to pop through.

I’m disappointed Pete Ashdown didn’t make it. I thought it was a long shot until Election Night when it looked like he was up 15 percent. As far as the presidential election is concerned, it depends on who the Democrats support. If it’s Hillary, the country might not be ready for a female president. I would enjoy that [having her in office]. I think we’re looking for change, and that’s a drastic change. Of course, I’d have to look at her policies.
