As the Centerville City Public Works director for the past 35 years, I have enjoyed working closely with eight mayors and more than 40 different city council members. This has given me an extensive and practical understanding of the issues facing our city.
As Centerville has grown, I have played an instrumental role in developing our infrastructure, always using public funds with wisdom and integrity. I've consistently used my ability to identify and analyze problems and find creative solutions to save taxpayer dollars and have been honored with 14 county, state and national awards for efficiency and innovation in our community.
Centerville is a big part of me. It is a wonderful place to live and raise a family and is full of good people. It also has its share of challenges. As mayor, I will continue to work diligently to find creative solutions to our challenges and implement innovative and efficient strategies in all city functions. I will draw upon my experience, good judgment and personal integrity to ensure that our city will remain a wonderful place for our children to raise their families.
If elected, I will suspend my employment according to state law.
The role of mayor is more than just familiarity of issues, but requires a particular skill-set as it is, quite literally, CEO of the city.
As a CPA with an MBA, Clark is experienced in governmental auditing, specifically city audits, is PFS and CGMA certified, and has experience in managing multi-million dollar business’ issues. As the owner of a local CPA firm, he is also cognizant of the challenges facing small businesses. Centerville is dealing with several fiscal concerns, and Clark Wilkinson is the only candidate with the education and expertise to navigate those issues.
A mayor must have the disposition and ability to lead.
Clark serves as the UACPA Key Person Committee Chairman, is on the Board of Advisors for the School of Accountancy at USU, and is Finance Committee Chair for Davis Behavioral Health. He was named the Outstanding CPA in Public Practice in 2009, the Outstanding Alumnus for USU School of Accountancy, 2010, and received the 2016 UACPA Distinguished Service Award. He has experience leading with integrity and creating unity, and has received the endorsement of several previous city mayors and council members.
Clark, and his wife, Janie, have raised their family in Centerville since 2000.
