Gregory A. Hudnall believes his experience analyzing problems and getting people involved in their solutions would be an asset on the Provo City Council.
Hudnall, 31, is a candidate for office in the city's southwest district. He has worked for the Provo City School District for seven years and for the past three years he has been the principal of the Provo Vocational High School.Hudnall says he is running for office because he believes in the goals Provo people have and loves the environment. He says he would work to encourage the positive changes he sees in Provo's future.
"We must work together to maintain a balance between preserving our culture and encouraging economic growth," Hudnall said. "We can fight elements of mind and health pollution while we revitalize our neighborhoods and business areas with new development."
Regarding neighborhoods, Hudnall is concerned about the status of apartments and dwellings owned by out-of-state landlords.
Hudnall said being observant, informed about trends and moving ahead with planning will help prevent the city from missing opportunities and allowing its tax base to erode.
Hudnall believes Provo's southwest district is poised to grow.
"Our district is the last frontier for growth in the city. Our district has the largest amount of land still undeveloped," he said. "This is where growth will occur. The citizens should be informed and make decisions on the nature and direction of that growth."
Hudnall supports development of clean industry that provides the city with good, solid tax revenue.
