In his words, "I am humbled that the citizens of Layton have elected me and trusted me
with the responsibility to serve on the Layton City Council. I have the time necessary
to do the work I have been elected to do and will work tirelessly to measure up to the
expectations of the residents of Layton".
"We have the challenge and obligation for future generations to see that the growth of
Layton is planned for and completed in a responsible way to provide for the health, safety
and welfare as well as the opportunities for all citizens in our community. I feel a
huge responsibility to do my small but potentially large and important part in providing
those opportunities for the people of Layton to be able to make their careers and raise
their families in Layton rather than commute to neighboring communities. I feel that I
have a responsibility to represent the people of our community in any and all aspects of
business opportunities, recreation, and public safety."
"I am aware that so many of the very important decisions in life, that effect so many, are
made by elected officials, and I do not take that lightly. It is so very important for the
voice of the people to be heard so that the majority is represented. Please contact me
with any concerns you have or issues you would like to discuss with me."
