Citizens of Salt Lake City speak dozens of languages—their government should at least speak two.
Our neighborhood councils need to be empowered—that means funded and staffed—not only to give voice to our neighborhoods but also to provide a launchpad for a more diverse generation of politicians.
And we can heal our city by recognizing that our building and business codes are the doors to economic opportunity—and they’re too often closed for folks who lack funds to hire lawyers. Closed to people who lack the time needed to personally chase paperwork for days, weeks, or months. We need building and business codes that open doors of opportunity.
