"Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity."
--W. Clement Stone

I have always reminded myself that in my position as the Utah County Clerk/ Auditor I have a responsibility to use the funds and resources that have been placed in my care wisely. Here are some ways I personally do that:

I am careful to avoid even the appearance of personal gain through the office or take unfair advantage due to my position, for myself, my family, friends, and associates. .
I have purchased and pay for own laptop, iPad, and cell phone for County business instead of requiring the county to purchase those tools for me. I do this so I don’t ever use county property for my personal needs.
I always avoided unnecessary travel on the County funds and I don’t take the full travel per diem offered. I only ask the county to cover required actual expenses.
I have personally reimbursed the County for travel costs that were pre-paid when my plans have changed.

I only seek mileage reimbursement when my travel goes beyond the local area. I do not “nickel and dime” the county for every little trip. 

When presented with matters that could present a personal or professional conflict of interest I remain neutral, recused myself, or ask for additional oversight/sign off from others.
If my actions have caused any problems for the county or the public; I have strived to accept responsibility, then work with everyone involved to find the best solutions.
I always make the effort to be fair and open to everyone that I come in contact with.
I do not see the office of the Utah County Clerk/Auditor as an opportunity to further a political career. My focus every day is on doing this job to the best of my abilities and serving you as Citizens..
In today's charged political environment men and women of integrity and honor are needed more than ever.
Personal Integrity is one of the most important character traits  one can exhibit.
