In 2015, the Libertas Institute named Heber the freest city in Utah. The recognition was based on a study that evaluated the degree to which local governments respect individual liberty, private property, and free enterprise. Heber had very high scores in all three categories.
Our city has always valued individual liberty, and this value has been an underlying theme of my years in public service. Because I value the freedom of property owners, I opposed the recent effort to rezone parts of Heber. Because I value individual liberty, I have opposed needless regulations and taxes. From low taxes, to strong property rights–I will always protect the individual liberty of our residents.
