We live in a wonderful city. Many people over the years have given much time and effort to make
our city the beautiful place that it is. Our parks are second to none. We have always been the
city that others wanted to model themselves after. We were the leader in Davis County.
Many of you have shared your concerns with me that we have lost that competitive edge. No longer
are we seeing commercial growth that will help sustain our needed tax base. The Old Fort Lane
shopping area is an eye sore. We were promised high speed internet service (UTOPIA) and all we
have is a 2.5 million dollar yearly interest payment. These are wasted tax payer dollars. The
city supported a new type of commercial development on the west side which many disagreed with
and was defeated by a citizens group on the ballot. There was not even a developer backing this
concept. The huge apartment complex’s are out of control. We now are being taxed for city light
poles on our utility bills.
My campaign will be built around moving Layton forward again by taking back the leadership role
that we once had: Strengthening our economic base, Protecting our open spaces, Supporting Hill
Air Force Base, Keeping our neighborhoods and schools safe, Supporting more job-based businesses,
Expanding the Arts, the recreation, and the safety of our community.
If you wait for it to happen, it will never happen. Success comes from hard aggressive work. We
must move Layton forward again.
