Dear Citizens of Clearfield,


I LOVE CLEARFIELD! I have lived here for the past 15 years (longer than I have lived anywhere else), and this is my home. When I moved my family back to Utah, I had the opportunity to move anywhere along the Wasatch Front. I chose Clearfield because of what it had to offer – Safe neighborhoods, beautiful parks, a high quality of life and, most important, some of the friendliest people I had ever met. To put it simply, Clearfield just felt like HOME! After 15 years, I still love it here. While we face typical struggles for a city of our size, we have weathered the economic storms better than most cities could imagine and continue to improve on what we have.


I have spent most of the last 15 years serving the city. I spent over 8 years on the Planning Commission and have spent the past 6 years serving you on the City Council. I believe we have put the city on a solid path to the future. There are great things coming, and I want to ensure that we stay on that path and continue to improve. Above all, I fully understand that I report to you. I look forward to your input and your feedback. I want to hear your concerns, and I want to work together to resolve them.


I have the skills, knowledge and above all, the commitment to make Clearfield the best it can be. I am proud to call Clearfield my home, and I want you to feel the same. I ask for your support this election year so that, together, we can show Utah why we say “In Clearfield, We’ve Got It Made!”
