Since we managed to have an election this past year — and our new mayor faced his first snowfall crisis within twenty-four hours of being sworn in — I give you this lovely, funny piece from Lowering the Bar, which begins:
Still no democracy in Wallsburg, Utah. Not because anyone’s opposed to it (as far as we know), they apparently just forgot about it.
Wallburg’s city recorder, described by the Salt Lake Tribune as “the employee responsible for oversight of elections,” not only failed to oversee this year’s elections, he or she forgot to have any.
Oh well. It’s Utah. (Is some Wallsburgian going to sue?)
