THE CHOICE BETWEEN MAYOR LEWIS AND KENDALYN HARRIS
Both have served the same 8 years in the city government. Both are good people, and they have been endorsed by some of the same folks.
They have been on the same side of nearly every policy issue in Bountiful for the past 8 years. They’re both good listeners and easy to talk to. However, for all the similarities, they are not interchangeable. There are significant differences. The differences are among the reasons the majority of the City Council are voting for Mayor Lewis’s re-election.
LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE AND PREPARATION
The Mayor doesn't have a vote on City policies; he is the chief lobbyist for the City on regional boards and councils that adopt policies and provide funding for issues with the cities in Davis County. Bountiful’s success depends on the mayor’s ability to be a tough negotiator. Successful negotiation is an art form. Randy has negotiation skills have been gained through years of experience. . There is no comparison between Randy Lewis's leadership skills and negotiating background and that of his opponent.

BUT THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE IS OWNING WHAT HE SUPPORTS:
Effective leadership is more than talk. It’s doing the right thing for the right reason. . Randy's opponent voted YES on every park project for the past 8 years. Maintaining those parks costs money. When the Council proposed a tax increase last summer to fund park maintenance (among other things), his opponent voted NO. Randy's opponent says she WANTED to support the extra money for parks, but that’s NOT how she voted. She voted NO, period, and didn’t even TRY to save the park maintenance money. That’s not effective leadership. It’s grandstanding. And it underscores the choice between Lewis and Harris. A vote for Lewis will ensure Bountiful has a trusted leader who gets the job done right.
Randy is the right person at the right time for the right reason.
