Read it all. It seems that Mayor Becker is still stinging from the boycott of Utah and all things possibly Mormon after California's Proposition 8.Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker and city council members have rejected the idea of boycotting the state of Arizona. "The mayor never wanted to go down that road," said chief of staff David Everett.
Council Chairman J.T. Martin said the notion was raised in the council meeting last week but quickly dropped as members didn't even want to discuss the issue. With Utah spending about $21 million per year doing business with Arizona companies, an economic boycott would have a significant effect on the state's economy.
I phoned them and they said they were getting quite a few calls and alot of emails. Let them know you support them!
