A new way to make your voice heard


People always want to know if their elected officials are using tax money wisely. They want to know how they vote on the issues. That stuff is nice.

Every week, we'll present you with a new two-week poll. Vote for your favorite, and we'll reveal the winner in two weeks.

Watch your favorites advance to the finals!

And for all of you haters out there, don't be jerks.

Most people view their politicians just like their sprinkler system: Set it and forget it. Or in this case, elect them and forget them. Here are four mayors who will urge you, by their sheer good looks, to not forget about them. You don't want to forget about them. You can't forget about them.

You elected them. And you should be glad, because they're hot. Here they are: Your hottest male mayors. Can I get a motion?

Centerville Mayor
Ron Russell

Spanish Fork Mayor
Joe Thomas

Salt Lake City Mayor

Mark: I can't wait!

Elected Hotties: Neither can we, Mark. Neither can we.

Mark Madsen
Another legislative victory!

Dayton's day

Welcome back from the weekend. Sorry we weren't here for your Elected Hotties fix on Friday. You'll survive, probably.

But what we really need to document is the fact that the venerable senator from Orem, Margaret Dayton, pulled off a sneak-attack win over her younger counterpart from Salt Lake City, Jennifer Seelig.

Best of luck, Margaret. You'll represent the Utah Legislature's women in our poll of Utah's hottest elected officials in a few weeks.

Margaret Dayton, R-Orem
Actually, can we call you Maggie?

Poll results:
Margaret Dayton: 58 percent
Jennifer Seelig: 41 percent

Poll No. 17

Here's another quick and dirty poll.

Sen. Mark Madsen, R-Lehi, took home the hottest title in the Utah Senate.

Now, it's up to you, America.

Which one of these hotties is going to represent the Utah Legislature in our final Utah poll in a few weeks?

Greg Hughes, R-Draper

Mark Madsen, R-Lehi

Remember, vote early.

A true senate majority

Not only is this Utah senator in the majority party, but he won the our most recent poll with more votes than anyone ever. He didn't get 100 votes or 110 or 120. Mark Madsen got 127 votes!

There's something going on here, something that can be explained by the following statements:

When the Boogeyman goes to bed at night, he checks his closet for Senator Madsen.
Senator Madsen does not sleep. He waits.
Superman owns a pair of Senator Madsen pajamas.
Senator Madsen doesn't wear a watch. He decides what time it is.
Senator Madsen can slam a revolving door.
Senator Madsen knows the wrong way to eat a Reese's.

The rest of the list can be found at The Senate Site.

Mark's been a fan of trying to help out the homeschooled kids get out more, but his bill to let them join public school's extracurricular activities, like sports teams, failed to make it to the head of the class.

Marky Mark and his Funky Bunch of Homeschoolers, boyyyyyyy!
Starring Mark Madsen, R-Lehi

Watch Mark take on Rep. Greg Hughes on Monday for the title of hottest guy in the Utah Legislature!

Poll results:
Mark Madsen: 49 percent
Sheldon Killpack: 34 percent
Scott McCoy: 13 percent
Darin Peterson: 2 percent
Ross Romero: .7 percent

Leg. semifinal, the ladies

Poll No. 16

Short and sweet here.
You voted for Rep. Jennifer Seelig, D-Salt Lake City, and she won.
You voted for Sen. Margaret Dayton, R-Orem, and she won.

So now you have to decide which of these fine ladies will represent the Utah Legislature in the contest for hottest female elected official in Utah.

Who's it gonna be? Just remember not to let this become a partisan race.

Jennifer Seelig, D-Salt Lake City

Margaret Dayton, R-Orem

Madame Senator, you're hot

Education in Utah is so hot right now. But it wouldn't be hot without Margaret Dayton. The senator from Orem is the Senate Education Committee chairwoman. That rocks!

The Utah System of Higher Education thinks this homemaker is so hot that it awarded her an honorary doctorate. So that makes Margaret a veritable Dr. Hot.

You know what else makes Margaret hot? This. See, she's not afraid to stand by a "testicle festival" sign.

Margaret Dayton, R-Orem
Utah County's finest

She's as comfortable expounding on her concerns about an international baccalaureate program, whatever that is, as she is appropriating stuff for natural resources. She advocates for local and state control of Utah education. That's why we're pleased to say, Madame Senator, you're hot.

Poll results:
Margaret Dayton: 49 percent
Pat Jones: 42 percent
Carlene Walker: 8 percent

Sen. men

Poll No. 15

This is the Senate, Son. These are the few, the proud, the elite. At any given time, only 29 people hold the title of senator in Utah. As you would expect here in the reddest of red states, 21 of the senators are Republicans.

But when it comes to which senators are elected hotties, we bring you three Repubs and two Dems.

May the hottest man win.

Darin Peterson, R-Nephi

Mark Madsen, R-Lehi

Sheldon Killpack, R-Syracuse

Ross Romero, D-Salt Lake

Scott McCoy, D-Salt Lake
