I had lunch today with Utah County Commissioner Bill Lee after showing him my and my neighbors’ property in Utah County to clarify certain issues for him regarding subdivision improvements. He’s a great person and believes in limited, constitutional government.
He told me as a kid he operated a tractor over thousands of acres to remove weeds away from corn plants to give the corn a better chance at survival. As a BYU college student he installed swamp coolers on hundreds of people’s homes, innovated, built and up-sold conduits to channel the water off customer roofs. He also successfully managed the ground organization for Senator Mike Lee’s campaign.
Regarding government, Bill said, “I try and compromise without being compromised.” What a great quote!
