Mayor Bill Wright, Mayor of Payson Utah
Citizens of Payson, it is an honor for me to support Brian Hulet for a second term as a Payson City Council member.
During my almost 2 years as your Mayor, I have had the privilege of working very closely with Brian. I can say without any reservation that he is dedicated to the city of Payson.
Brian has worked extremely hard to ensure that Payson’s future is bright. Brian has devoted his time and substantial talents to attract quality businesses to Payson. It is critical that we have a larger retail tax base to ensure that we as a city can provide the services to our citizens that we want and need.
Brian’s experience in the financial world has allowed him to gain valuable skills and contacts that will continue to benefit our city.
Brian has recently been appointed by Governor Gary Herbert to be on the Mountainland Technical College Board (MTECH.) Mountainland Technical College has announced that they are coming to Payson. They are planning to build two buildings on 13 ½ acres. Brian will be extremely important to the city and MTECH as that process continues to evolve.
I am proud to support Brian as he asks you for a second term to serve you. I am positive that his skills will be an asset to the city as we grow.

With this money we have built pickleball courts, helped the Payson Community Theater, Payson Chorale, Peteetneet, and Band in the Park, and commissioned a beautiful mural downtown.
Some PARC items budgeted for this year include a shade structure over the play ground equipment in Memorial Park and the engineering of the dry creek trail by SR 198.)
Currently organizing a working group to ensure the earliest entry possible of UVU (Utah Valley University) and METCH (Mountainland Technical College) in Payson.
To make this happen we will need the new north interchange built, Frontrunner reaching Payson and state funding for the UVU and METCH buildings.
