Official Vote Tally

The official Bountiful primary vote tally is in (includes absentee ballots post-marked on time, but not received by the election day, provisional ballots, and such), and we claimed 530 votes, putting us in 5th place over-all (instead of 6th), and only 90 votes shy of making it onto the November Ballot.
Thank you everyone who encouraged and supported me through this process - I look forward to continuing to work on solutions to issues in our community and serving in other ways.

John Pitt                 1389
Kendalyn Harris     1341
Fred Moss             1237
Richard Watson       621
Meagan Becker       530

Mueller Park Canyon

Thanks for visiting
Please check out the tabs at the top to learn more about who Meagan Becker is, what she stands for, and how to get involved.

Our family loves Mueller Park Canyon. My husband, Benj Becker, has fond memories of long summer days spent exploring the canyon. The night before we were married, we went up Mueller Park Canyon to talk about our future, fears, dreams, and expectations. 

Recently, Benj and I took advantage of family staying with us (and early-morning free babysitting), to hike to Elephant Rock. We woke up at 5:30 am, and were back right as the kids were waking up - a breathtaking and invigorating way to start the day! 

But Mueller Park Canyon has changed over the years. Prices to enter have risen, and the intended gift from the Mueller family to the city of Bountiful has been sold, and is now part of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest Service. 

I spoke with Iris Young, a Bountiful resident for over 40 years who also loves Mueller Park Canyon, about her more recent negative experience. You can read her editorial in the Davis County Clipper here:

Here's my question, what roll do you think the city of Bountiful has in keeping Mueller Park Canyon an accessible, and friendly local venue? 
Should the city push to lower entrance fees to Mueller Park Canyon, or perhaps subsidize them all together? 
If the cost was less, would you use Mueller Park Canyon more?
