Our Endorsement for SLC Mayor Is…
In more Election 2019 news—Planned Parenthood Action Council is endorsing both Luz Escamilla and Erin Mendenhall for Salt Lake Mayor. Both candidates have pledged to stand up for reproductive rights and for Planned Parenthood… so we leave it for you to decide who to vote for. I just ask that you vote. If you aren’t able to vote, join us in getting to know Luz and Erin and support the candidate (financially or volunteer) who will represent your voice at city hall.
As the mayor of the largest city and state capitol, we must depend on the Salt Lake Mayor to speak up and set the stage. Salt Lake City is a beacon of hope (or refuge if you will) in a sea of old-school patriarchy. We depend on our mayor to move the city boldly forward and embrace diversity and ensure equal access for all of us.
There are two debates coming up where you can meet the candidates and hear more from them on their plans for the city:
- Tonight, Thursday, October 17th hosted by Impact Hub in downtown Salt Lake City.
- Next Thursday, October 24th The Westside Coalition will be hosting a debate at the Utah State Fairpark.
Check out the candidate’s websites and then join us at a debate to learn more about their plans for our city. If you aren’t registered to vote there is still time to register online here. Mail-in ballots will arrive at your home soon or you can vote in person on Election Day 2019, November 5th.
See you at the polls!
