I love this state and its history. Announcing my candidacy on January 4th is significant because it is Utah Statehood Day. I will run for Mayor of Salt Lake City with the same heart and passion as those who in our City's beginnings worked as a community and were united as citizens.
I love this city and know it well having lived on 9th Avenue as an Intern and Resident, in Sugarhouse on 21st South, on University and 11th East as a medical student and in our restored home on West Temple. I have practiced medicine here for 32 years and served patients from almost every neighborhood and economical background in Salt Lake City and the Valley.
The Mayor's seat is not one of power, but of service. One of my greatest friends, David M. Kennedy, taught me that to be successful in politics you must "Avoid confrontation. Never take credit. Treat everyone the same." I do this in my Medical practice, in my community service and will continue to do this as Mayor of Salt Lake City.
The issues do not have to divide us. In 2007, we can work together on behalf of this city and the State just as the citizens did in 1897. Salt Lake City is a place where everyone is welcome. Let's make it a kinder place. A place where there is great success in business and greater civility among people. I will listen and we will work together as a community. The power lies with the voters and together we can make a difference.
Thank you, JP

Dear JP, I visited your blog page today. Nice. Good luck to you. Here's hoping that SLC recognizes the treasure in their midst and elects you for mayor-first step tomorrow. The Mayor on the Big Isle won against all odds and is now a fixture in that community. Of course you already know about our Samoan mayor in Honolulu. Can do. Hugs to all. My love to you and your family. Aloha, JoanneI am not currently living in SLC but still follow some of the local news.
