Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson waffles on UTOPIA

Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson's 2003 State of the City address:
"In the realm of economic development and business promotion, several new projects are on the horizon. First, we propose joining UTOPIA, a state-wide effort to build a fiber-optic network that will make available broadband Internet, data, and video services to every house and business in Salt Lake City.  While the project is just getting off the ground, the prospects are very promising that Salt Lake City can enhance its reputation for being the most wired city in the nation, at very little cost to taxpayers.  We look forward to bringing more details to you about this project as the UTOPIA inter-governmental organization moves into the implementation phase of its work."

April 2004 (from the Salt Lake Tribune:
"'There is no reason to think this is the right time for Salt Lake City to undertake a project like UTOPIA,' he said. 'You've had some very talented people lose billions of dollars in the telecommunications industry the past few years, and I'm not sure taxpayer money should be put at risk.'"
