Statement from Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker on President Hinckley's passing
I extend my deepest sympathy to the family of President Hinckley and the millions of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I appreciate the great care and concern President Hinckley had for our city. He has guided an unprecedented investment in downtown Salt Lake City that will be an example and catalyst for our future. He was truly one of Salt Lake City's greatest ambassadors. His compassion, sense of humor and wisdom will be deeply missed by our community. As the Mayor of Salt Lake City, I hope all of us will follow President Hinckley’s example of reaching out as individuals to serve our neighbors.
