 I would like to take just a moment to thank all who participated and voted in the recent election for section manager.  For those who voted for me I thank you for your endorsement of my performance.  For those who did not vote for me, I would appreciate a favor.  I have learned a lot form various feed back received during the election process!  I would appreciate your input to help make things better in our section, I am open to suggestions and will respond to all email and phone call suggestions.  I have set up my home phone number to email all messages to my cell phone.  My cell phone doesn't get great reception at my office but it will let me know of a text message waiting to be read. 

I plan to visit as many clubs in our section before the end of the calendar year and many of the ARES and emergency groups.  Let me know if you have something on your mind.  I will be at field day and try to visit a few clubs at field day.  I would like to encourage everyone in our section to attend the Rocky Mountain Division Convention to be held at Ruby's Inn ion 31 Jul, 1 & 2 August.  Many clubs will have BBQ's and picnics this summer.  Let me know if you would like me to attend and I will try and work it into my schedule.  If you have some ideas or want to see some changes made in our Utah Section lets talk!  I would love to heard about ideas and how you would recommend the changes being accomplished.

Tell me what you would like to see posted on this site in the future and I will make an effort to make it happen.
