Mayor To Residents: Save Or Shave 18-Inch Mustache

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah mayor has put all 18 inches of his handlebar mustache up for a vote.

Residents of the Salt Lake City suburb of Murray will vote Wednesday on whether Mayor Dan Snarr saves it or shaves it by giving a thumbs-up or thumbs-down sign during the annual Fourth of July parade.

His wife is campaigning to shave it by carrying a giant pair of wooden scissors during the parade to convince voters.

City officials are reviewing videotape to determine the number of votes along the 2½-mile route.

Snarr has been growing the facial hair for the past 31 months and fine-tuning it by firming and freezing the white strands. His wife says she’s tired of being poked in the eye and living with a “freak.”
