From six sincere individuals having impressive qualifications to serve the citizens of Payson, two were voted in as members of your town council. I felt humble and pleased to be one of them.
Many, many people deserve thanks for extraordinary efforts, advice and encouragement. For their faith in me and commitments, I send heartfelt thanks.
To my wife, Bette, I publicly express appreciation for putting most all else aside to work on the campaign, tirelessly and unconditionally, believing we, as a team, are doing the right thing at the right time for our community.
Now let's all get to work. Clearly, as measured by the voter turnout, various controversies, consensus about priorities, there is much to be done. This council member will make every reasonable effort to unite interests; promote clear, complete and truthful communications; earn trust. Thank you, voters for your confidence in me and the privilege of serving you.
Dick Reese, Payson
