Mayor David Watts

Service Term 2018-2022

Email: mayorwatts@herriman.org

My wife and I have lived in Herriman for over 6 years, creating a home for our three children. I became involved in the City after examining the increased density of homes in neighborhoods. Through my involvement, I discovered that the best way to be effective is to be informed, so I started attending City Council and Planning Commission meetings. Over the years I have become more familiar with how the city works, and areas where there is room for improvement. I plan to put time and effort into assisting our residents with navigating through the City’s policies and procedures to ensure they have an effective voice.

My goal is to set a clear vision for Herriman City and hold developers to their agreements, bringing them together with the residents to work through issues and build better communities. I have a proven record of fiscal discipline, community focus and transparency. I am willing and ready to continue to serve the residents of Herriman.

Jared hopes to keep Herriman an attractive place to live, while encouraging economic growth that is fiscally responsible. His biggest goal is to make a difference in the community that he loves. He plans to achieve that goal through the following:

  • Continue to influence the growth of the City with a balanced, objective approach.
  • Keep the community informed so that they can be involved in the process.
  • Encourage economic development through means other than increased housing density.

Jared meets with city staff to stay updated on the current status of the City. He is determined to acquire as much information as possible on the issues before making decisions that impact our residents.

Over 18 years ago, my wife and I chose Herriman as the place to build our lives together and raise our children. At the time, Herriman was a small community of just under 1000 residents, and a charming country feel. That country feel is what has led so many to choose to reside here. As Herriman continues to grow and mature, it is essential to protect the core values that have drawn so many people to this beautiful community which is heavily focused on family, preservation of open space, and development of parks and trails. Smart and managed development are key during this phase of rapid growth if we want to uphold our identity.

As a Councilmember, I will listen to the community and work to preserve the core values we were built on. I support managed growth and encourage smart economic development. Open communication between myself, members of the City Council, the community, and the city administration are essential to our vitality and sustainability. I look forward to my opportunity to serve this great community.

I am appreciative of the vote of confidence and look forward to serving the residents of Herriman.

As a rapidly growing city, we need leadership willing to make wise decisions that ensure our sustainability, while not sacrificing the quality of life that brought us all here. A city council best serves its citizens when each member brings their unique strengths, as well as a willingness and a commitment to work effectively together. I have every confidence our city council will be well-functioning and dedicated to achieving that goal with the help of our city employees.

I ran because I felt my knowledge of economic development, city government and communications would be of great benefit to our growing city. As such, my initial goals are as follows:

  • Encourage business investment that will increase our sales tax base and avoid future increased taxes and unnecessary debt
  • Seek out unique opportunities to establish our niche as a city
  • Hold developers to the high standards we want reflected in our community and develop a process whereby residents can be more involved and informed
  • Improve city transparency with frequent communication and encourage feedback

Most importantly, I know that I am “your voice” on the City Council and I take that commitment seriously. As I begin my service to District 4 and Herriman City, as a whole, I want to encourage residents to reach out to me at any time with questions, concerns or ideas. I invite you to like my Facebook page, as I will be posting regular updates and city information.
