However, it gives the wrong message regarding the homeless issues under the poor management of Mayor Ralph Becker. My wife and I have lived and worked in downtown Salt Lake City for 15-plus years.

What study suggests that these are needed? Was it the same study that justified spending millions on a tunnel under 1300 East? Or was it the study that led to 1,000 new residential units and a plaza in Sugar House, a “streetcar” to nowhere, beautified alleys downtown, bike lanes that even cyclists don’t like, parks closed to dogs,...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Becker, mayor of Salt Lake City and soon to be president of the National League of Cities, has no intention of leading a crusade against what he sees as too-lax firearms laws. The Democrat supports what he considers common-sense gun control and, in the days after the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., he signed onto the U.S. Conference of Mayors letter advocating a ban on assault weapons and h...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
