The late Mayor Brent Taylor of North Ogden gave a life of service to his community before he was tragically killed in November 2018 while serving a second tour to Afghanistan with the Utah Army National Guard. Major Taylor had just been reelected to a second term as mayor when he accepted his deployment.
Mayor Taylor and his wife, Jennie, committed early in their lives to give their all to protect and promote the ideals we value as Americans. As mayor, Brent Taylor also served on ULCT's Board of Directors and Jennie served as president of the former ULCT Auxiliary organization. The Utah League of Cities and Towns has proudly created an award in their honor.
In 2019, ULCT bestowed the first-ever "Taylor Service Award" to former Sandy City Council Member Steve Fairbanks for his years of selfless service. It's time, once again, to nominate elected officials in Utah municipal government who go beyond their duties as they serve their communities. The ULCT Board of Directors will review the nominations.
Do you know someone who consistently exhibits an extraordinary commitment to service in our cities and towns? We invite you nominate that individual for consideration of the 2020 "Brent and Jennie Taylor Service Award," and continue the legacy!
