To the editor:
A couple of months ago, I attended a meeting in the neighborhood that allowed local residents a chance to meet with Deedee Corradini. While at the meeting, I asked Corradini how she would select individuals to serve in important government positions if she were elected mayor. She told the following story:She said that she held an important position with the Utah Symphony and that when she first became involved with the symphony, it was being very poorly managed. She said that she helped institute a national search committee to locate a new person to manage the symphony, and with pride she said that they had been able to bring in a person from the Midwest to do the job. She said that is how she would select people to serve in city government if she were elected mayor.
Personally, I don't think we need a mayor who is going to bring in people from all over the country to run our city. I have been to Chicago, Detroit and New York City, and I think those people would do well to come to Utah to get people to manage their cities. I don't think we need to go outside to get qualified people to manage our city, and I don't think we need a mayor who feels that way.
