Do you believe in a strong local economy? Join me in growing Logan's economic development to promote sustainable city growth. Aside from my experience as part of USU's Conduct Review Board and a Woodruff Neighborhood Council Representative, I have enjoyed working with some of the most innovative universities and largest corporations in the nation. Such experience has provided a multifaceted viewpoint that will be beneficial to solving many of the issues Logan will confront.
I Promise to:
1) Improve Communication
Many residents have expressed gratitude for projects the city implements. However, residents have also expressed a desire to be better informed of projects before they begin, and to be updated as projects are implemented. Furthermore, improved communication will ensure government and residents work together to address difficult issues such as roads, traffic and air quality.
2) Retain Local Talent
Business and employment are critical issues for most Logan residents. Too many of our children and USU graduates cannot find careers in Logan, which forces them to leave the valley. If we want our families to have the opportunity to stay in Logan, we need more industry. Furthermore, more business opportunity and economic growth will help offset the costs associated with city projects, lowering the tax burden on residents.
3) Promote Economic Growth
We are competing with hundreds of other cities for businesses. If we honestly believe that business is the lifeblood of the community, and we want to recruit and retain businesses, we need to be willing to admit that we can do better. Then we can assess the needs of our local businesses and develop incentives that will make Logan a destination for businesses that can support families and prosperity.
Together we can make it happen.
