(UNEDITED) I attended "Meet your Candidate" night at Kaysville city Hall. I was very disappointed in the way the current 3 people running for re-election was answering qurestions. I listened to Brett Garlick speak to the person in front of me and all he could do is attack the three people who subsequently have survived the primary election. He accused the 3 candidates of "going to fire all the Kaysville Recreation Employees and go to an all volentier recreation program". I found out that this is not the case! Of course his credibility with me was destroyed when he called "Granny Annie" and threatened her if he let our group sign initiatives in her establishment.
When he did this he announced that he was a "Kaysville City Councilman". I guess that makes it official that he was speaking for the City. Mark Johnson did not know how much money was paid on the "Flint Property" this year, "I think it is about $400,000.00" ( OnThe 16 of August, he approved the payment of $469,605.92 to the Flints".) Is his memory that short - or does he just automaticall vote to pay the claims presented by the city administrators? Ron Stephens was not much better. He is a very likeable personable guy and I like him a lot but when asked about any money issue he stated "I am not an Accountant, I have Dean Storey walk me through those things." Doesn't he do any research? What is the matter with this guy . . . being nice is good, but if you do not do 'due-dilligence" and find out what is happening to our tax and electrical dollars, you should not be on the city council. Because of these things I encourage everyon to call Ron Barton, Orwin Draney, and Susan Lee and ask them questions . . . I have done this and that is why I am voting Barton, Draney and Lee. Let's get rid of the current city council and return responsiblity and accountability back to the city.
