Mayor's Corner 01/28/14

 

Dear Friends:

Last week I received some truly amazing letters from a second grade class here in Richfield. They were so heartwarming and inspirational that I struggled to think of words to respond.  I did reply to express my appreciation for the letters and to accept the challenges issued.

These second grade youngsters are studying how city government is run.  I have mentioned before that city government is the most intrusive level of government.  It should be, and is also, the most responsive to those who are governed.  Why are we the most responsive? We are here with you.  We are neighbors and friends and share the same roads and water system. We have the same concerns and are also subject to the voters and realize that if we make mistakes we are accountable to the citizenry.

Mayor's Corner 01/21/14

 

Dear Friends:

I love reading the Reaper and particularly enjoyed last week’s articles that discussed volunteerism.  There are many types of volunteers.  Sometimes, volunteerism can be a “spur of the moment” thing.  Carl Holmes was being a volunteer when he helped rescue a fellow ice fisherman who went through a thin spot in the ice.  If this ever happened to me, having a volunteer like Carl would be a very good thing.  Carl grew up on a farm where he learned about ropes and leverage and using whatever is at hand to accomplish the task.  Great job, Carl!  You are a great example of a community, church and Sons of Utah Pioneers volunteer.

Mayor's Corner 01/07/15

Dear Friends:

We’re one week into the new year and I have once again been reminded that I don’t know everything!  Two people can look at the very same situation and interpret it very differently. They view it through their own lenses of knowledge, experience, beliefs, attitudes, and intentions.

I mistakenly believed that all forward-looking, sincere people in our area would see post-high school education challenges and opportunities here in Richfield largely the way that I did. Of all the lessons I have learned while being a first-year mayor, the lesson of how much we see problems and their solutions through our own lenses has been the most revealing. We all do it.  We mistakenly believe that most people see things the way we do. They don't. I'm not complaining, just learning.  And I look forward to continuing that learning process.
