Hi. It’s been a minute. There have been some life and work changes keeping me busy the last several months but the Rural Towns Project Podcast is back! I’ll be sharing this episode and one more focused on Richmond, Utah that were recorded earlier this year before moving on (and back) to Bear Lake (Idaho AND Utah sides) in the new year. So please stay tuned for even more episodes of the podcast and be on the lookout for updates on a slightly different approach I’m taking.
In this episode, I chat with Paul Erickson, Mayor of Richmond, Utah and Chief Credit Officer of Cache Valley Bank. Paul comes from a family with a history of public service and we talk about the importance of getting involved in our local communities. Given Paul’s dual roles, he also has a unique and thoughtful perspective on growth, taxes, small businesses, the labor market, and shopping locally in rural communities. We talk about all those things and more and we end, as always, with the Road Trip Music Question.
