Today I helped launch the new effort to elect pet representatives and raise money for a good cause. Salt Lake County Animal Services calls it the PAWlitical Pet Election with positions available for pet mayor, pet deputy mayor, and nine pet council members. Pet candidates must be good citizens, fully licensed county residents with a passion for public service. The price will be $1 per vote. It’s the only election where candidates are encouraged to buy votes, and voters can cast their ballot as many times as they want. It’s for a good cause, with every dollar going to the Injured Animal Fund.
Salt Lake County Animal Services is a first class organization with a no-kill animal shelter. Candidates should reflect the values of Animal Services and be hard working, ethical, with a love for all animal citizens and their human owners.
More details and pet candidate registration can be found on the Animal Services website.
