Thank you to Salt Lake County Councilwoman Jani Iwamoto, the rest of the Democratic-led Salt Lake County Council and Mayor Peter Corroon. The county is no place for storage of high-level radioactive waste. We don't want it, and now the county is on record saying so.
Councilman David Wilde, a Murray Republican, doesn't want to waste our county, either. Councilman Wilde joined with others on the Council in supporting the resolution to keep waste from landing within our borders.
Turning Utah into a dumping ground for toxic radioactive waste is the third-rail of politics, folks. Poll after poll has shown that Utahns of all political stripes oppose storing radioactive waste in our state. I feel sure that candidates who fail to take a firm stand against dumping the stuff in our state will do so at their own peril.
