Vote for Erin

by

comment

There are countless great candidates running for municipal office this year. Among them is Erin Mendenhall, who is pursuing a bid for Salt Lake City Council District 5.

If elected, Erin would be a great asset to the council. There are grave problems with wide-reaching ramifications facing us in this day and age, chief among them our ever-declining air quality. Erin’s experience as executive director of Breathe Utah, a local nonprofit dedicated to solving Utah’s air-quality problem, uniquely qualifies her to face this environmental crisis head-on. Erin will also be an unrelenting advocate for public transportation, local businesses and equality.

We need a leader who will be magnanimous and pragmatic with regard to problem-solving, while at the same time being a pertinacious advocate for the residents of District 5. I believe that Erin Mendenhall is that leader, and urge the voters of District 5 to cast their ballots in support of her candidacy.

A vote for Erin Mendenhall is a vote for informed and zealous representation.
