SnugZ's Mackay Running For Mayor


Brandon Mackay, president of supplier firm SnugZ USA (asi/88060), is making a run at public office, vying to become the mayor of Saratoga Springs, UT. Mackay has never sought public office before, but decided to join the ballot as he was looking for a new manufacturing site for SnugZ. "I was out pitching our plans for a new building and I got no response at all from the mayor of Saratoga Springs, in my own backyard," Mackay said. "I heard crickets and I was just scratching my head."

The focus of Mackay's campaign is jobs – he believes under his leadership Saratoga Springs would be able to provide more of them. "The growth trends out here are astronomical," Mackay said, "so it's my goal to create more long-term, legacy job opportunities for our community. We have 20,000 people in Saratoga Springs and most have to travel to work."

Mackay calls himself "a long shot" to win, but that hasn't stopped him from going door-to-door to campaign. He's also sent out mailers and used ad specialties, including banners and yard signs, to promote his message. Mackay says if he is elected, his mayoral responsibilities would not interfere with running SnugZ. "The whole experience has been eye-opening," Mackay said. "It's been fun."

The mayoral election in Saratoga Springs will be held on November 5.
