Lynn Arave recently wrote about the success that the new Salt Lake City Library is enjoying as a tourist spot. The article reads: "Mayor Rocky Anderson's dream that the library would become a gathering place has definitely been realized."

Let us remember former Mayor Deedee Corradini was responsible for the library. Rocky was the one who nixed the plan for affordable urban housing east of the library — a plan that every economic planner knows would have enhanced the mixed-use principles of a vibrant city and enhanced the appeal of our great library Deedee built.
