Editor: In the past several weeks, there have been quite a few comments on Facebook, and other social media, about the college coming to town. There will never be a college in Payson — at least not during my lifetime. There are several reasons why I make this statement.
The storm clouds have gathered. The water’s on the rise all around. And the Pine Water board needs to find something that floats.
Editor: Recently this paper and our community leaders were discussing what Payson needed first, educated workers or quality jobs. The Payson Area Economic Development Strategic Plan indicated we must attract both. I believe that thinking is a little premature. If we want to attract quality jobs and trained workers, we must first get our Payson house in order.
This is getting crazy. We’ve got to do something about dark money.

The number one reason is that I care about Payson. When I first ran for council in 2008, it was because the current administration at the time was decidedly "anti growth" and I saw the negative impact it was having on the local economy. My wife and I almost moved. But then I decided that this is my home, my children's home, and my grand children's home so I decided to get involved. Right after I was elected the Great Recession hit and we as the council had to make some very hard decisions in the best interests of the town. There were some very tough years financially but with out of the box solutions to issues and the sacrifices the employees made we have been able to weather the storm better than many others. Now we are in recovery mode. Things are getting better but the job is not finished yet.
I’m a part of this community and want to help make it flourish.
I am running for Town Council because I feel I can make a very positive impact on the way our Town operates. I know that I would bring a great deal of experience to the Town Council, through the different Boards, Organization and Commissions that I have held. I bring a great deal of expertise in finance, community development and handling personnel issues to the table.
Because I believe I can make a positive difference in our community.
To see that we as a council continue to keep Payson financially solvent. Help promote sound growth and development. Seeking a solution to covering the event center and completion of water delivery from the Cragin Reservoir. Seek and follow the wishes of the majority of Payson voters.
I am running for Town Council because I love Payson and I want to represent the people. I feel that every citizen should be given a voice in local government.
