“Thank you everybody for your support here today,” Hancock said to the people in attendance after he took his seat on the dais. “I’m just really grateful for the opportunity to serve Riverton.”

‘Access’

Since being elected, Hancock said many residents have contacted him to share their thoughts and concerns about various topics, and he encouraged them to continue to do so, sharing his personal cell phone number (840-1206) and email address ([email protected]) publicly during the meeting.

“I want to express just how serious I take it to be serving the community in this position – and that part of that is access,” he said. “If you have idea, if you have thoughts, if you have something you want to throw your effort behind, let us know. Reach out to us. We’ll put you to work, I guarantee it.”
