CENTERVILLE - Bret Millburn is seeking a third four-term term to the Davis County Commission.
"I'll go another round," the Davis County native told the Clipper Friday morning.
"The last few years have been as challenging economically as in quite some time. But the county has been able to weather the storm. We haven't had to diminish services," he said, adding, "We're not completely out of the woods."
He expressed "pride in my stewardship," which along with other county commissioners has included using "conservative governance and prudence" to continue providing necessary services without increasing property taxes.
"It's a team effort," Millburn emphasized. "I give a lot of credit to our dedicated, professional employees and the great relationship we have with our 15 cities in the county. We're all in it together," he said.
"We're known as a bedroom community but we're not sleepwalking toward the future," he said. The combined efforts of many are having a positive impact, and people want to live and work in the county, the commissioner said.
He and his wife Michelle live in Centerville and are the parents of two sons and three daughters.
Information from the Commissioners' Home Page indicates he received his B.S. in psychology with a minor in political science from Weber State University and Associates of Arts and Sciences from Ricks College (now Brigham Young University Idaho).
Prior to being elected a commissioner, Millburn served as Director of Planning & Development with United Way of Northern Utah (UWNU).
Additional professional experience includes: Numerous positions with the Salt Lake Bid and Organizing Committees for the Olympic Winter Games and Paralympic Winter Games of 2002, including community outreach, planning and budget, and federal government relations. His final assignment was that of General Manager of Athlete Transportation.
He also served as Assistant to the Speaker of the Utah House of Representatives.
