This is such a busy time for all of us. In the Tooele County Clerk/Auditor’s office, we are winding down the 2015 elections — and beginning the 2016 elections.
We’re also meeting with the Tooele County Commissioners to work on the 2016 budget and finalize adjustments to the 2015 budget. There’s also the Board of Equalization process, marrying couples, and making sure citizens have their passports for vacations.
In an effort to keep perspective on what’s truly important at this time of year, we asked visitors to our office to fill out a form indicating what they are thankful for this Thanksgiving. Here are their responses:
• Everything — even when
things aren’t going well
• Soda pop
• Nice ladies in the clerk’s
• Good husbands
• Cell phone service is down
• Snow and chocolate
• Our Savior
• Family, Gospel and knowing
families are forever
• My job, work and a great
boss, groovy boss
• Good people that I see each day at work, great coworkers, my dear, sweet friends and nice ladies in the office.
There’s a slim chance some of those last ones came from my office. But that’s OK, I’m thankful for them too. In fact, I’m thankful for all of the things listed above. I’m also thankful for the opportunity to serve the citizens of Tooele County! Perhaps most of all, I’m grateful I know who to thank for all of these blessings!
May each of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and may you have much to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving!
