The Ralph Becker Shark Tank 

Pin It

This week, you can sign up for a 10- minute meeting with Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker to pitch him on the minimal investment of at least hearing your view of any matter of city business that you feel needs to be a priority for his office. This weekend, take part in the largest clean air rally in the state and demand action be taken against gunk-spitting polluters like cars, diesels, refineries and wood burners. Later, don’t miss the first day of the 2014 Legislature and learn how to keep tabs on your public servants to remind them who’s in charge.

Schedule a Meeting With SLC Mayor Ralph Becker
Scheduling from now until Jan. 29

Mayor Ralph Becker is now accepting appointments on a first-come, first-serve basis for citizens looking to set up a 10-minute window to meet with him on Jan. 29. Be sure to keep the appointment strictly to city-related issues and don’t use the time to try to appeal a decision that was made by another city board.
Salt Lake City & County Building, 451 S. State, 801-535-7704, scheduling now until Jan. 29 for meetings between 4-6 p.m.

Clean Air, No Excuses
Saturday, Jan. 25

If Utah’s red-air days make you red in the face from anger and not just smog suffocation, then you’ll want to show up at this rally, where Utahns will demand that elected leaders do more to rein in polluters and scrub the valley’s inversion.
Utah Capitol, 350 N. State, Jan. 25, noon.

First Day of the Legislature
Monday, Jan. 27

It’s up to you conscientious citizens to keep an eye on your lawmakers and make sure their sausage-grindin’ is in your best interest. Visit the Legislature’s website and follow the calendar for committee and floor times or swing by the Capitol to talk directly with lawmakers about bills coming up and how they’ll be voting. Your job is quality control, and it’s time to get to work.
