I have been honored to be able to serve the people of Wasatch County and it’s just a desire I have to continue to do that and to help the citizens to be able to vote to be able to see all the things that go on in the office. The transparency in our financials if anyone has questions, we’ve always been here to show people or explain what’s going on with budgets and whatever it might be. I feel that I enjoy what I do, I like coming to work and I want to continue to do that.”
