Since the early days of my youth I have always loved living in Herriman. This is my home. This is where I have learned many character attributes which has served me personally and professionally. It is from these rich and fulfilling experiences living in Herriman and my desire for its continued success that I have decided to run for Mayor.
To ensure the continued success of Herriman I will focus much of my attention in three major categories. First, economic development. As mayor I will work vigorously to attract and bring new businesses into the city. Second, residential development. As mayor I will ensure that new development enhances the image of the city. Third, engagement. As mayor I will work full-time to attend to the numerous duties required of the mayor and to be readily accessible.
I married the love of my life, Madeline in 1976. We are the proud parents and grandparents of five children and ten grandchildren.
I graduated from Bingham High School in 1972. I continued my studies at BYU and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management with a minor in Accounting and Economics in 1980.
I have worked for over 33 years in such capacities as accountant, business administrator and paralegal.
I was elected to the Board of Education for Jordan School District during a season of extreme fiscal and political difficulty. I served on the Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation Board assisting in the planning and developing of property for public use. I also served in ecclesiastical leadership capacities during a time of unprecedented growth.
I enjoy running, hiking and spending time with my family. I have lived in Herriman for 55 years of the almost 60 years I have been alive.

Jared loves living in Herriman along with his wife of 17 years and 3 wonderful children. Since moving to Herriman, Jared has volunteered his time, energy and resources to change the direction of Herriman’s growth. Jared was taught the values of hard work, respect for others, and honoring commitments.
Some of Jared’s qualifications include:
- Degree in Finance, University of Utah
- CFP, Certified Financial Planner
- Vision of Herriman’s future reflecting “Responsible Growth”
- Proven Leadership
- Passionate about planning for the future!
Jared answered the call for leadership when he realized he was one of only 9 homeowners who received a notice regarding a proposed 300 acre high density development. He quickly spread the information to other homeowners through email, meetings, and door to door visits/flyers. He also organized homeowners and worked directly with the City and developer to find solutions that would work for everyone.
The result was a 22% reduction in building units, zoning safe guards for the existing homeowners, design guidelines and a fundamental shift in the direction of Herriman’s growth.
Jared continues to lead this group who remain committed to working for “Responsible Growth” in Herriman.
We can make a difference!

Prepared to successfully navigate Herriman’s future
With a wealth of government, communications and economic development experience, I have the knowledge to elevate our community by being your advocate for limited, but responsive government, fiscal responsibility and smart development for high quality of life.
Extensive Government Knowledge
I worked for Herriman City for nearly four years, as both their first economic development director and their first public information officer (PIO). In short, I know Herriman – its unique issues, the city council, the mayor and the staff.
Having worked in local government for more than five years, I also have an in-depth understanding of government, ensuring I can “hit the ground running”, with Herriman benefitting from my established relationships with agencies, legislators, elected officials and with governments at the city, county and state levels.
Responsive Resident Communications
As the PIO for Herriman City, I handled multiple crisis situations, most notably, the Machine Gun Fire in 2010. My goal was and continues to be open, frequent communication with residents to empower them in governing of their city.
With that in mind, I launched the city’s social media outreach, earning Herriman the reputation for being the leader in innovative communications to residents.
Actual Economic Development Experience
As the Economic Development Director for Herriman City, I focused on building the foundation necessary to create a sustainable economic future that would ensure we would have a strong sales tax base and not unduly burden our citizens with high taxes.
Successful activities include:
- Worked with Salt Lake Community College to find a suitable location for their campus and was part of the working group to create the Herriman Campus Master Plan
- Rebranded Herriman City to better reflect the young demographic and appeal to businesses
- Created a marketing packet and represented Herriman at the largest convention for the shopping center industry, The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC)
- Established and led the Economic Development Committee, comprised of residents, businesses, developers and city staff
- Secured a $150,000 legislative appropriation to start the Herriman Innovative Center, with the intent of creating a small businesses incubator program
- Mountain West Small Business Finance
- Marketing committee for the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah)
My participation in both of these boards is highly beneficial to Herriman during our current high-growth phase.
My husband, Dave and I have three children: two daughters and one son. Like many families in Herriman, my family lives and breathes soccer, enjoying hours upon hours at the beautiful parks in our city.
I am currently the communications director for Sandy City, responsible for all citizen outreach, social media innovation, legislative work and media relations.
When not working or watching soccer, Dave and I like to escape on our Harley-Davidson with 80s music on and cell phone off.
