    you guys pretty much just need to be better at everything, and have more voters. One of the good things is that in recent years SLC seems to have developed a really good reputation nationally as having a high quality of life, so I think it will continue to draw more and more people who aren't conservatives or Mormons.

    ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936

      A lot of people work in SLC and live in the conservative suburb cities (because it's expensive to live in SLC). That's a problem, because living in a conservative suburb tends to reinforce conservatism. So SLC alone can't draw enough people to do anything of importance in state politics.
