MY PLEDGE

 CANDIDATE DEBATE

     GUEST COMMENTARY             ON TAX INCREASE            WRITTEN BY MR. COUTS

From speaking out against the tax increase in Weber County GOP meetings and both public hearings to updating Weber County Republican delegates, I am the only candidate to have actively opposed the tax increase since the news of it's planned implementation first broke.  My words have not always been popular, but I have remained constant in my opposition, and my stance that there is waste to be cut.  Weber County Residents do not need to be paying for our elected officials mismanagement of the county funds - especially funds generated by some of the highest tax rates in the state. 

My support of the Constitution isn't some politically convenient position taken to win votes.  My background as a surveyor, following in the footsteps of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln, along with my strong conservative outlook has given me a deep love and appreciation for our founding fathers and our foundational documents.  The Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights have been hanging on my wall at work since I had an office in which I could hang pictures.  I proudly fly the American Flag 365 days a year at my house, lighted appropriately at night, removed during severe weather, and lowered in times of national mourning.
