As a husband and a father of two, I understand the daily struggle of the working families in West Valley City. I know the challenges facing people in our community.
Like most of you, I am an ordinary citizen with a mortgage, children, and a job I go to every day. Many of you have sacrificed so much to build the families, homes, and businesses that make our community strong. My home is in the community in which I live, and the broader community to whom I owe so much.
I have lived on the west side for over 20 years. I graduated from the Job Corp Program and went on to attend Salt Lake Community College and the University of Utah.
I am the first in my family to have earned my Associate's Degree, Bachelor's Degree, and a Master's Degree in Public Administration. I truly understand the power of education when it comes to transforming lives. I believe all of our children have the right to quality education and all that will bring them.
