Winder touts track record in mayoral campaign

West Valley City mayor hopes issues will overcome fallout from Burwash incident.

A look around the city, he said, reveals the new TRAX line that will serve Fairbourne Station, an expanding Valley Fair Mall soon to add a Larry H. Miller Megaplex of movie screens, construction of an eight-story Embassy Suites hotel financed through the city Redevelopment Agency, the growth of Lake Park Corporate Center on the city’s northern border and Winder Farms’ transition from "Utah’s oldest milkman into the nation’s fastest growing online grocer."

"This is precisely what we need in Salt Lake County as we head out of this economic slump," Winder said. "My performance shows a competence and skill set that will be beneficial for Salt Lake County."
