My Vision

I will always put Kaysville first and lead by strengthening relationships within our city, with neighboring cities, and with our county and state leadership.  As an empty-nester, I have the time to focus and listen to our resident’s concerns. As a leader, I rely on the diverse expertise of everyone who wants to contribute to solutions.   As a former planning commissioner and current city council member, I reach out to our community to engage in conversations and share information. I make informed decisions based upon the needs of our community and the ordinances that govern Kaysville.

Good Governance:

I’m committed to conducting myself as a professional at all times while representing the city and in my personal life, a I have as a current member of the Kaysville City Council

One of my top priorities is being accessible to and engaged with residents. If elected, I promise to make the council accountable. If we agree to do anything, I will vote that we honor our words.

I promise to explain my reasoning for each vote I cast.

I promise to vote according to Kaysville principles.

Additionally, I promise to be responsive to emails or voicemails  so residents can easily share their thoughts on city issues that are important to them.

As a business owner, I fully understand the balance of ‘putting the cart before the horse’ as one evaluates needs versus wants and strategically plans for future growth. I’ve learned the hard way how essential it is to have a solid, sound infrastructure in place to support Kaysville’s inevitable growth.

Economic Development:

My husband and I have built several very successful companies from the ground up. I’m actively involved in the daily operations of each company. I’ve worn many hats during our early years.   We have employees working in multiple states from Washington DC to Hawaii. I understand how business works I know what it takes to create a viable and sustainable economic environment.  It’s important to attract the right businesses in the right areas here in Kaysville.

Infrastructure:

Kaysville is an outstanding place to live. To maintain our vibrant quality of living, we must invest in the infrastructure to keep our children safe, respond to emergencies, and deliver essential city services such as power and water.

Fire / Emergency Response:

Average response time for West Kaysville residents 8-9 min (due to proximity and road options).  Only 3 out of 10 who call from West Kaysville will receive the timely help they need (this is not just FIRE, this includes EMT/Paramedic services). Although we have 35,000 residents. I support a west side fire station and dedicated paramedics.

Public Works:

While roads are the hot visible issue, the biggest problem is WATER!  The city pipes are ductile or iron (brittle and corroded).  Our entire water system will destruct if/when we have an earthquake. We need to budget money to replace piping with durable, flexible options.
