Library signs out of place

I was startled on a recent visit to the Holladay Library to see two large postcard-size notices on the north and south doors welcoming patrons to the library on behalf of County Mayor Nancy Workman and County Council members.

What gives these officials the idea that they are our hosts at a public library? We taxpayers paid for these structures and support staff salaries with additional tax money. I have never seen Mayor Workman or any council member assisting patrons at any county facility, but I have seen plenty of signs listing the names of elected officials.

It seems to be a tradition.

It's a tradition that ought to end.
