Candidate Profile: I’ve worked tirelessly with our council to deliver an innovative city government seeking solutions to lower your taxes and fees, fight for responsible growth, and improve transportation and the overall quality of life. During these last four years, we have:

  • Saved property taxpayers over $2.2 million, or $180/year per homeowner, while adding 9 more officers with our own Riverton Police.
  • Lowered government costs with the lowest utility fees in the region.
  • Prioritized economic development bringing centers like Mountain View Village and Costco.
  • Secured major roadway and infrastructure funding.
If elected for another four years, I would work to prioritize more economic development, innovation, improve the historic downtown, enhance water availability and quality and broadband infrastructure.
