I wanted to thank you for the Counties CD that I was sent. I have been
looking at is this morning and I can already tell it will be a huge help.

[This is an e-mail exchange I had with administrative assistant (Cathy Christensen) of the Uintah County Commission. I was publishing a new Membership Directory and she was providing edits of their content in the Directory. I noticed that one of her edits didn’t look quite right and thankfully brought it to her attention]
In the information you submitted about Heather Hoyt in Grants, you show that her e-mail changed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Is that correct?
Doug – No, I’m glad you caught that. It should be email@example.com. Thanks!
Good—I’m glad too. Some people like being known as a “hotty” but not everyone so I wanted to make sure.
Boy, you are good – you caught that, too – I almost said somehting about the “hotty” thing in my last reply because Heather is not one that would like being known as a “hotty”, so I was especially glad you had caught that. Thanks again. And thanks for giving me a good laugh this morning. 🙂

[Just a random e-mail from Clark Davis, Box Elder County Commissioner, I received after sending out a mass e-mail one day]
Thanks for your emails. They are very helpful and I just wanted you to know I appreciate your efforts to keep us informed.

[Random e-mail from Sanpete County Commissioner following Conference in Logan]
Doug: Thanks for a great convention! Thought everything went well. Had good discussions on many topics. Really enjoyed Michael Ballam and his remarks. Thanks to you and all the UAC staff for the great job you do to support county government.

[Comment made to me in passing at a meeting from a Millard County Commissioner. Over the years I have received countless instances of verbal feedback that is very similar to this—usually five or six different individuals will make similar comments directly to me.]
“Thanks for everything you did to put this on. It was a great conference and you do a wonderful job in putting it all together. Thank you.”

[This is an e-mail I received from the Emery County Assessor, after helping her put together the assessors agenda for an upcoming convention. Helped identify and coordinate speakers and topics.
“…Again, thanks so much for helping me, you’ve made my life so much easier.”

“This newsletter that you publish is one of the best in the country among the county associations. I travel around the country and get to see most of them. It’s clean, well-layed out, has good information in it and you just do a fantastic job on it.”

“Thanks Doug and everyone else that was involved in the UAC conference. I really enjoyed it and I learned a lot, as usual! Everyone is so helpful and friendly and it’s nice to feel welcome. I look forward to the next one, (and besides, it sure beats posting taxes!).”
