SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Someone went to a lot of trouble to take a jab at Mike Winder, who is running for the Salt Lake County Mayor's office.
Winder is currently serving as West Valley City Mayor.
In 2011, Winder took a lot of heat for publishing positive stories about WVC in local news websites under the pen name 'Richard Burwash.' Winder also used a picture of a 'Peter Burwash' to register with the news agency as a freelance writer.
Winder was reprimanded by the WVC Council and resigned from his position at a public relations firm following the controversy.
On Wednesday, Winder saw and snapped a photo of a campaign sign next to his own sign that promoted another candidate for SL County mayor: Richard Burwash.
The sign was seen on the corner of Bangerter Highway and 104th South, and Winder himself saw the humor in it, posting a photo of it on his own Facebook account.
Through Facebook, Winder said he does not know who posted the sign.
The 'real' Peter Burwash lives in California, and neither he nor any Richard Burwash is listed as a candidate for the Salt Lake County Mayor's office.
Noticeably absent from the 'Burwash' sign is the GOP 'elephant' symbol.
Winder faces fellow GOP challenger Mark Crockett in the June 26 Utah Primary. The winner will face democrat Ben McAdams in November.
