Westside = Home
If you are reading this, you likely call the Westside of Salt Lake City home. Whether you are a life-long resident or a recent move-in, all of us have made the choice to join this welcoming community.
When we choose to call the Westside home, we choose to take responsibility to care for, protect, and improve it. By making this choice, we can also define what “Westside” means. Though we cannot control the opinions of others we can inform them. We can call out misinformation or outdated perceptions and let people know what it means to live, work, and play on the Westside. Sometimes this choice is not easy, but in my experience, the most meaningful parts ofour lives more often require the most work.
In this context, Council Member James Rogers and I have embarked on a campaign to help show others what it means to call the Westside home. We have distributed hundreds of WESTSIDE t-shirts and bike lights. I have more and am willing to share while supplies last. Send me an emailwith the subject line “WESTSIDE” and tell me what you love about the Westside (don’t forget to include your shirt size).
I invite you show your Westside pride. Wear the shirts, share your neighborhood’s beauty and strengths on social media – #myWESTSIDE. Send photos of you and your neighbors wearing your WESTSIDE shirts to include on the District 2 website. Additionally, show your pride by doing one thing to improve your block. If all of us are willing to take this challenge, we can define for ourselves and others what it means to be from the Westside. And, we will live up to the promise of Westside=Home.
District 2, what do you love about the WESTSIDE?
