My Story: Why Im Running for City of Highland City Council
My family moved to Highland in 2000 from Santa Ana, CA. I became interested in local politics during a political struggle over the ownership of our water in 2004. I observed how the political process works, such as city council, planning commission, budgets, taxes and zoning. I became informed about petitions, initiatives and referendums and what a valuable tool they are for citizens. I learned from many incredible leaders in our community.
Service makes a community function and thrive. I have been a den mother, Brownie leader, PTA volunteer and School Community Council Chair. Recently, I have become a Utah Water Watch volunteer in AF canyon, and a member of the State of Utah Courtroom Observation Program. I have served on the Highland City Arts Council, and the 2007 History Committee which produced “Highland City 1[phone redacted]: a brief history.“
Representation through reciprocal communication is the most important function of government. I will utilize every tool available to ensure issues are communicated to the most people possible and that all views are heard. I will implement data driven analysis to determine developmental impacts to our community.

I am trying to raise $1500 for mailing post cards and $1000 for signs and fliers. I am also seeking personal endorsements especially if you live in the City of Highland. Thanks so much for your support!
