what an example


My dad is pretty amazing! He is the Mayor of Santaquin and was up for re election.The Opposition has been campaigning very dirty. There have been some horrible things said about him. There were vicious lies spread about his character. But my dad never played their game. He never stooped to their level. There were times when I wanted him to because I thought what they were doing was so unfair. However, the fact that he continued to be the bigger person has reminded me that he is a great guy and his way was definitely the better way. With my dad what you see is what you get. He is very honest and stands by his decisions, even when it doesn't seem to be the popular thing to do.


In the end, he did pull out another victory. I am very happy he won. But even more happy he didn't lose.(yes, I did mean that in more than one way) It was a win for the good guy.

That's so great! Congrats to him! I love it when the right person wins, cuz in our unfair life, that doesn't always happen. Good job. :)

Phew. Now what is your family going to do without a campaign to run or softball games to win? Maybe you can start quilting together....

So glad someone with integrity won. I would have voted for him if I could. Instead I voted for someone with integrity to run our own small town. Good for you all you voters. Congrats to Uncle Jim!
