● By Taylorsville Mayor Larry Johnson
Hello and Happy New Year to all! I hope everyone had a joyful holiday season and it gave you the opportunity to enjoy family and friends with a chance to rejuvenate as you begin the New Year.
Thank you for the continued public trust and support you have given to me as Mayor. I respect this position and consider it an honor and privilege to serve each one of you. I am grateful for my council colleagues, department directors, and staff. I am especially grateful for our Police Department and Fire Department, for so diligently protecting and serving our community. We are so fortunate to have outstanding city employees, and every day we see the results of their commitment to delivering excellent services to our residents.
We have accomplished many goals in our city, and there will be many more in 2015. Work is being done each day to make the right decisions and help new business choose to be here in Taylorsville.
As one of you, a resident of the city, I would encourage all of us to set goals, make the plans, get to work, stick to it, and reach those goals--Be positive, patient, and persistent. What is really important, is realizing that you are already successful as soon as you begin to pursue what it is you really want. Goals are very important so that you know where you are going and you also know when you have arrived.
My sincere personal thanks go out to you, for caring about our city. You are diligent in investing in the city by shopping and dining in Taylorsville first, and also generously giving of your time through volunteering in our community. It is not possible for a city to be its best without compassionate and committed people coming together and focusing on common goals.
As we continue on into 2015, I wish each of you a Happy and Healthy New Year!
