Editor: Now that my run for Mayor is over, I would like to extend a sincere thanks to my opponent Allan McDonald and all of those that ran for office this year. It was to me ethical, courteous and without malice that impressed me the most. My run for Mayor showed me that it can be done without all the negative or degrading way which we are so familiar with in national elections.
Now is the time I would like to reflect and thank all of my supporters who voted for me as well as those who heard my message. As I became involved in this year’s election I realized just how important this year’s message of true (accountability) really is.
Our currently fast pace of rising taxes and less open space of land is becoming a stark reality of this pending future. Critical questions need to be addressed by all of us if we want a future in the hands of the people. As it becomes more and more apparent of this rising cost just to live here, do we really know why this tax expense is becoming so high?
There is no doubt that this year is a pivotal time in our community. Who is elected can determine in a big way how we will grow in our near future.
This is why I ran for Mayor I wanted answers and to you to be informed.
Accountability involving how we live here must follow disclosure and allow (us) the people to make the final adjustments. A government by the people is only achieved by demanding a voice that is heard with correct action taken in our best interest!
During this campaign I had the rare opportunity to meet and talk with many of you. I have come to know and appreciate the growing diversity and challenges we all face here in Heber City. I know many of you feel that your voice will not be heard or you might feel helpless in making any changes. This will only be true if you choose NOT to get involved in our governments decisions. We must continue to ask WHY and demand answers from those we elect if our best interests are to be served. We must demand the right to say no to those in charge or to take charge each and every time our government decides on anything involving our right to live here. This is our right as American voters and taxpayers.
Thank you again for your votes and your great support!
