Jeff Tuttle is running for Orangeville City Council

My name is Jeff Tuttle and I am running for a position on the Orangeville City Council. I have lived in Orangeville for the past 27 years, where my wife and I have raised our four children.

I enjoy serving on the city council and being a part of the many improvements and activities that make our city a great place to live. I would appreciate your vote on Nov. 6.

Patrick Sundstrom is running for Emery City Council

My name is Patrick Sundstrom and I am seeking re-election to the Emery Town Council. My family moved to Emery in 1975. I graduated from Emery High in 1986 and served six years in the United States Air Force. I am employed at Live Earth Products in Emery. I got out of the Military because my wife, Heather, and I knew Emery was the only place to raise our children, Mark and Jolee. It is, in my opinion the best place in the world.

I know there are some things that need to be done to improve our town, and while I have served on the Town Council we have accomplished quite a bit, particularly for the youth of Emery. While there are changes in the world and time does not stand still, I promise to do the best I can to keep Emery as close to being the same town as it was back in 1975. I would appreciate your vote of confidence in November. Thank You

Glen Dale Johnson is running for Green River City Council

I am Glen Dale Johnson. I am a candidate for Green River City council. Some of my qualifications are: experience. two years city council, six years as Green River mayor. I am retired with the time and desire to do whatever I can to make Green River a better place to live, work and play. I have no personal agenda nor am I connected to any business or special interest group. I believe very deeply that every citizen has the God given right to be heard and entitled to all the rights and privileges that are available without discrimination due to race, religion, age, or gender, rich or poor.

I am very concerned about the young people in our town especially those who are in some degree underprivileged and those who need help and guidance through these trying times. I am concerned about some older citizens who depend on getting meals delivered to them on a daily basis. I see roads that we all should be ashamed of, and a water and sewer system that is in need of a constant effort to keep safe and dependable. I see some property owners that are in danger of being flooded again. I see your children and grandchildren going to and from school where no sidewalk exists, some on a busy street where cars have to stop for them.

I know this all takes money. If elected I will do all that I can to make sure your money is spent properly and on the most important and needed projects. I will do all that I can to improve these and other challenging situations that we face. I will do my homework so that when it is time to act I will be prepared.

Your vote for Glen Dale Johnson is a vote for a Better Green River

Julie Jones is running for Huntington City Council

I have been with the city council for almost six years. In this time I have had the opportunity to learn a great deal. Working with the Community Development Block Grants and the citizens, I put in the playground equipment in the Lions Park. I am continuing with the cemetery project and would like to complete the cemetery grounds. I have been active with the Emery County Economic Council and served on the LEPC too. I have been with the Youth City Council for 10 years.

The Youth City Council has done many things and just a few are Huntington's first afghan, and we put 210 headstones on unmarked graves in the cemetery. The past two years, the Youth City Council throughout the county has made the Lamb Fry a big success and with those proceeds, we have put on some great Youth Leadership Summits that are for all youth 12-18 years.

I just enjoy working and serving for Huntington, mostly for the people. I hope to continue to serve the people and keep Huntington the place where we all can live with our children and grandchildren.

I also view public safety as a priority.

We have lived in many other states, which we enjoyed, but we seem to come back to Green River as home. I teach and coach at the high school. I love to be active, and work hard with the youth in the community. I have volunteered my time in many different activities that the community, community center, and school have put on. I have experienced several different cultures and feel blessed by all the varied experiences that I have had in my life.

One thing is common among all the places that my family and I have been and that is that family is the strength of the community. A strong family base creates, if not guarantees, a strong and successful community.

JoAnn Behling is running for Ferron City Council

I have lived in Ferron most of my life and have always loved the people of Ferron. I have been involved in the growth of Ferron assisting in its growth from a town into a city in order to be able to bond for a water system. Having served on the city council several years ago, I was able to be a part of the developing the zoning ordinance so that we became the beautiful city that we are.

I have worked with budgets and know how important it is to live within the budget and yet see that we spend our money wisely getting the most we can for our tax dollars. I'm well acquainted with people involved in State government having served as the Utah Recorder's Association president, and also on the board for the Utah Association of County Treasurers. I would love to be involved with the city as a council member and feel that because of my past experience with Ferron City and Emery County that I would make a good candidate. I would appreciate your vote this November.
