REFLECTIONS–My First Year
I committed to serve with four principles of focus.
Listening – This year has required extra effort for citizens to be heard. Thank you for persisting.
Study/Hard Work – This commitment has been intense and reminiscent of medical school. Research, including speaking with residents and experts from many professions, has been educational, enlightening, rewarding, and well worth it.
Fiscally Conservative – Roy staff work from financially conservative principles and a strong commitment to protect and serve our citizens. Thank you!
Representation – There are two basic styles. Principal/CEO style: what the elected official feels is best, or Agent: acting on behalf of the collective citizenry. Although some of both are needed, as an elected official, I am your agent. So I can best serve you, please let your voice be heard. Lack of involvement will result in decisions being made by the opinion of a few.
Citizen Action Plan: A new General Plan is proposed and will be a driving force for the next 20+ years. Please review and let your opinions be heard. Find it at www.royutah.org/162/community-development and click on “2019 General Plan Update”.
Thank you for this opportunity to serve. Thank you to our city staff, and a big thanks to you for your continued proactive involvement!
