From Nate Duckett

March 10, 2023

This last Saturday I announced my intention to run for Mayor of the City of Farmington for a second term at the annual Mayor’s Ball.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 9 years since the constituents of district 4 in Farmington elected me to serve as their City Councilor and 5 years since the citizens of our entire city elected me as Mayor.

It has been my honor to serve the city that I love and I have been humbled by the challenges that have faced us during this time. I don’t need to recap the hurdles that have been thrown in front of us or the amazing accomplishments that we have achieved and the initiatives we are still working on. What’s important to me right now is to tell this community THANK YOU. Thank you for maintaining your belief in who we are as a tough, resilient, hard working community that values service, innovation, and a positive outlook.

I believe our best days as a city are still in front of us. We have not reached our full potential and the city we are working on today will be better tomorrow because WE are committed to leaving this world a better place than we found it. It takes all of us to make the City of Farmington the bright and shining light that it is. Keep it up community.

Follow and share your passions and together let’s keep working and building a beautiful, vibrant, and thriving community for those of us who are here today and those who will follow us tomorrow.
