Rocky Anderson on the 2008 election listen08/15/08 SeÃ¡n Kinane
WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
Former Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson was known as one of the most progressive mayors in the country. His second term ended early this year and he opted to not seek a third term. Anderson is currently president of the advocacy group High Road for Human Rights.
WMNF spoke with Anderson yesterday at the Florida Conference of Cities meeting in Tampa. We asked Anderson his opinions about the 2008 Presidential election.
â€œâ€¦Those [Democratic and Republican presidential nominees] who are in a position to be talking about [important] things, increasing awareness, raising consciousness and hopefully if elected doing something about it, are remaining, basically, mute.â€
