You may know this about me already, but I am a big believer in communication. I appreciate all of the comments and feedback that I have received about the potential changes to our utilities. If you are not aware, we are looking seriously at selling our gas utility to Questar Gas and selling our electric utility assets to South Utah Valley Electric Service District (SESD) and annexing in to their service district. You probably understand this already, but this is a really big deal, and it will have a lasting impact on every one of us.
As your mayor, I want to hear what you have to say. Before we make any decisions on this I want to accomplish two things. First I want to make sure I communicate the reasons behind us suggesting such a significant change. I want to make sure you are informed. Secondly, I want to hear what you have to say about it. I want to get your feedback.
On Thursday, June 19th at Frontier Middle School, we will have a town hall meeting to accomplish exactly this. While I can write blog posts, and post on Faceboook as part of my communication efforts, I believe that looking at each other face to face is the best way to communicate. I want to share some information with you (very briefly), then give you all a chance to ask any questions you may have.
In conclusion, your representative government is about to make a big decision which will impact you. Before we do, I want to communicate with you and briefly inform you of the details, then I want to listen to you and answer your questions. I am humbly requesting your presence at Frontier Middle School at 7:00 PM on Thursday June 19th. Oh yeah, and tell your friends and neighbors too if you don’t mind.
Your public servant,
