Mayor's Corner 11/18/15

Dear Friends: 

Tomorrow I am speaking to several classes of seventh graders about Utah history. My mother’s father and his progenitors were not members of the predominant L.D.S. religion. His father came here as a U.S. Marshal in the late 1800’s.

I have a dream.  I know, you have heard that before. But I believe this dream really can come true. As I’ve shared my dream, many have responded, “wait, that’s been my dream for years.” Along the way, my dream has become more focused, and ideas presented by others have taken shape and improved my dream.
I believe we need a Legacy Park to remember and celebrate those who came to this valley and dozens like it throughout the Great Basin and beyond.  Mormon pioneers came because they were called.
