If not me, then who?
I’ve always known I would enter the political scene. I’ve been active with Kaysville City for most of my life and my husband and I looked forward to the day I could run for city office. This year as I evaluated all that is at stake for our city, all the changes that I believe need to happen, the unity that needs to resolve our division, I was very interested in our candidates and their plans for leadership.
I’ve been privileged to get to know Katie for Kaysville, one of the four mayoral candidates. Katie has been instrumental in helping citizens like me become educated about what’s going on in the city through her Kaysville Condensed with Katie Witt recaps of city council meetings and city issues. One won’t need to spend long with her communications to realize there is much work to be done in Kaysville and that Katie is incredibly passionate and qualified for the role of our Mayor.
Upon talking to Katie at the final hour of the filing window I realized with the two open City Council positions there were only two declared candidates. That’s it! I was frustrated to realize they may run unopposed. In a city of our size, with the potential we have, this shouldn’t happen. I recognized the feeling I’ve had burning inside of me. I believe we’ve all felt the call to do more, to stand up, to be informed and to BE THE CHANGE. And at that final moment, I knew the time was right for me to throw my hat into the arena.And so I invite you to join me on this journey as I campaign for Kaysville City Council. I feel honored for the opportunity. Stay tuned as I will share more about myself, my plans on City Council and how I look forward to working together! See my Facebook page here.
