My Priorities As Your Representative

As you all know West Jordan City has made some great strides over the last several years, with such things as economic growth through job creation and developing industry, new and improved roads, public safety and so much more. We are heading in the right direction and I want to help keep us moving that way. This is why I want to be your City Council representative. As your West Jordan City Council representative, I will continue to work for transportation funding, fight to bring new industry to our city and help create new and higher paying jobs.

  • COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP
  • SUPPORTING OUR WAY OF LIFE
  • ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
  • SMART GROWTH

I have a natural talent for connecting people to each other and helping them find community support. I truly enjoy building relationships with individuals and organizations to help them succeed. My strengths are attention to detail, organization, compassion for others, listening to learning, finding compromise, extracting ideas and asking questions that lead to action and understanding, elevating other, finding the positive, high energy and a bit goofy at times.
