    Who am I to tell someone in a community that isn't my own how to vote? I live in Willow Canyon, not Millcreek, so I don't speak for Millcreek residents. However, let me just say what a pleasure it is to have to answer to one less bureaucracy than my Sandy City neighbors. Our federal government in Washington DC has totally an completely overstepped its Constitutional bounds; that is the biggest enemy to our freedom, first and foremost. However, state governments and even municipal governments are totally out of control with their own power hungry agendas. I will fight any future effort to incorporate my own community, so another level of bureaucrats can tell me what to do. I encourage other unincorporated neighborhoods, Millcreek or whoever, to do the same. Do let these power mongers convince you that you need them to tell you what to do. You already pay for plenty of regulators at the state and federal levels.

    I'm so glad that East Millcreek incorporation was defeated. The overwhelming voice of the people was heard and the plans, which would benefit a select few, were defeated.

    I agree - Millcreek is a great area.

    Just because the incorporation vote failed and Millcreek only has one directly elected representative doesn't mean WAY more involvement couldn't happen.

    Attend county council mtgs. (especially at budget time). Be seen and heard at county council mtgs.

    I've attended more than a few county (and city)council mtgs. and I can say that those who bother to show up and voice some interest in county government make a difference.
