Why Are You Running For Spanish Fork City Council?

The greatest strength of the U.S. military isnt the weapon systems, vehicles or equipment, it is the people that serve. It is the service to each other and our communities that is our greatest strength. On the battlefield it was my desire to serve my Soldiers and witness their service to others. As a military officer I believe in selfless service, integrity, personal courage and that it is my civic duty and obligation to serve my community. As a school teacher, I have taught my students about the need to be involved in our community. I consider elected office to be a sacred trust that carries with it the responsibility to lead and educate the citizenry. I have served as an effective leader and manager of both people and resources. As a company commander in Afghanistan, I managed the health, welfare and morale of 60 soldiers under my command, as well as millions of dollars of unit equipment in stressful battle conditions. As an educator I am fully invested in the future of Spanish Fork as I teach the leaders of tomorrow. As a city councilman, I have used these skills to improve our community and defend our values. I have fought against state entities that would force a heavy tax burden on our city. I have defended private property rights and worked to help keep kids safe on their way home from school. I ask for your vote that I may continue to serve and defend this great community.
