My parade float entry is in response to a popular question that I am getting now-a-days. The question is "Dave, are you running for re-election?" My answer has been "Yeah, I am leaning towards running for re-election." However, my parade float was my official announcement that I am running. My parade float title was "You can RELAX, Dave is running for re-election."
Eagle Mountain is a complex city. A lot more complex that it needs to be. And as we have seen there are people that have taken advantage of the city or tried to bully the city and the residents.
I have been told by a resident that they "sleep better at night knowing that I (Dave) am watching out for the city."
I won't spend the rest of my life on the city council. However, it is important that we have continued progress in the city. We have a good thing going on the council right now. We have a great group of people and there is a strong argument that a change in directions would be a bad thing.
Bullfrog Spas from Riverton sponsored my float and loaned me the hot tub. George Wright, my neighbor and home teacher, provided the Cadilac Escalade. James Johnson loaned me the trailer.
I had "Splish Splash", "Rubber Ducky" from Ernie on Sesame Street, and "Under the Sea" from the Little Mermaid as my theme songs. I enjoyed wathing the parade watchers dance along with me.
I had 3 bubble machines that cranked out lots of bubbles during the parade. I went through almost a gallon of bubble juice.

Lots of bubbles
Dave Valenzuela is the original party animal. Dave pulled the ski boat and me on roller blades in last year's parade.
