Local Politics

I've spend much of the day, working through, categorizing and listing local political web sites for my group of community directories. These are the local campaigns in the Salt Lake City Metro area. The Salt Lake County mayor's race is quite interesting. The incumbant had been caught with her fingers in the cookie jar, and the race is going through a rather nasty episode with write in candidates and last minute efforts to change the ballot.

I am really sad to see that local politicians are not using web sites and blogs all that heavily. I guess they see more to fear in putting their ideas in bits than there is to gain from appearing hip and modern.

Sadly, the anger and hatreds about the president race is drowning out the local races.
