  1. While I have been privileged being a constituent of both gentlemen running for Salt Lake City mayor, I am disturbed by recent developments characterized as chaotic and organizational atrophy by some observations. Is Ralph Becker overwhelmed by his yearlong responsibility as a candidate for Salt Lake City Mayor? Or, is this a final swagger symptomatic of presumed victory and the real cause for his lethargic campaign performance?

    Mr. Becker missed one debate and arrived late at another campaign appearance because of an unraveling office and an organizational nightmare. Curiously, he snubbed an event sponsored by his peers in the legal profession and expressed more irritation over the inconvenience of interrupting his schedule than support for the issue of affordable housing in Salt Lake City.

    In over two decades of community service, Dave Buhler exemplifies conscientious and tireless service as Cabinet member for the Governor, state senator, city councilman, professor, and commissioner of higher education. By his actions of enthusiastic advocacy, he reveals the sacred obligation he has for his fellow citizens as students, constituents, or colleagues in working above and beyond his duty to honor the trust bestowed on him by us.

    Mr. Becker has many fine qualities and a legacy of principled commitment throughout his career as statesman and environmental advocate. Unfortunately, his election as mayor will very likely hazard his sterling reputation and his record of achievement for the public good. While Mr. Becker is a worthy adversary and competent legislator, these attributes are not acceptable substitutes for executive skills and administrative mastery. In government, creative inertia is the animating agent and guiding principle for all bureaucratic activity. If he cannot tame his own campaign apparatus, then how could he possibly hope to master the serpentine layers of city hall?
