Jon Pike Meets with SUSA
Steve Kemp, SUSA President
Danny Oritz, SUSA Executive Director
Southern Utah Soccer Association Gentlemen,
I want to thank you, your board, and other parents and coaches who were so kind to meet with me on Tuesday evening. I learned a lot about youth soccer in St. George.
I am disappointed to hear about the numerous promises on the part of the City to create or help facilitate the creation of adequate soccer facilities for the soccer-playing youth of St. George in past years. I also appreciate the offers to help and the past contributions made by SUSA.
I commit to you that as Mayor, I will elevate the discussion and planning process regarding soccer facilities in St. George. I will take immediate steps with the city council, city management and representatives from SUSA to figure out how best to meet short and long-term needs of the soccer community, including the 3,500+ young people involved with SUSA.
Thanks to SUSA for the countless volunteer hours your coaches, parents, and board members contribute to improving the youth of our community and making St. George a great place to live!
I look forward to meeting with you again soon.
