Utah Mayor Goes Vegan to Set Example for Citizens

Park City Mayor Andy Beerman will not consume animal products for 10 days—and possibly beyond—to show city residents that plant-based eating is easy.

Last week, Park City, UT Mayor Andrew “Andy” Beerman announced he would follow a plant-based diet for 10 days. Local animal-rights advocate Kent Maur asked the newly elected mayor to follow a plant-based diet to set an example for Park City residents. “Friends, I've agreed to try a 10-day plant-based (vegan) diet,” the mayor posted on Facebook. “I encourage anyone curious to join me for a try.” Beerman—who is slowly transitioning to a vegan lifestyle with his wife—hosted a vegan lunch last Monday at the Park City Municipal Athletic & Recreation Center to promote plant-based eating to his constituents. Several politicians have used their platforms to promote plant-based living, including vegan Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams who helped transition several local elementary schools to offer an all-vegetarian menu last year.
