As your Mayor, my focus will be economic development. We need to attract a variety of businesses for our community to thrive in the future. My professional background is in marketing and business development. I spent nearly three decades persuading Fortune 500-level companies to purchase millions of dollars of goods and services from the O.C. Tanner Company. I wrote thousands of proposals and made hundreds of presentations. I know how to communicate with business decision makers. After I moved to Utah in 1985, I was elected to the community council where I worked to moderate development and provide for a stable neighborhood. Mayor Tim Dolan appointed me as chair of the Sandy City Personnel Commission. I moved to Herriman two years ago and helped several neighbors who were negatively impacted by a Planning Commission decision. That case is under review by the Third District Court. I have no ties to any developers or advocacy groups that will influence my decisions and actions. Though the Mayor is a part-time position, I will have no competing priorities. My goal is to serve the needs and interests of my fellow residents. I will focus my full-time efforts to benefit Herriman City.

Primary Campaign Finance Report

David Watts has lived in Herriman for over 6 years. He became involved with the city after organizing his community to fight against the proposed increase in the density of homes in his neighborhood. David organized several hundred homeowners to stand against the proposed changes, resulting in the reduction of the total number of homes as well as the addition of 2 parks and two Tot Lots in his community.

During this process, David discovered that the best way to be effective was to be informed and began attending every City Council and Planning Commission meeting for two years. He learned how the City worked and how the City could work better. He discovered misleading and deceptive practices that were being used against the City and informed the public to ensure these practices stopped. David has also spent his time helping residents navigate through the City’s policies and procedures to ensure that every resident has an effective voice.

David is currently a member of the Salt Lake County Republican Party Executive Board where he has pushed for small government and local control.

David plans to change the way that the City looks at residential development by setting a clear vision and holding developers to their promises. He will ensure that developers work with the community and will stand beside residents to ensure they are given the voice they have been denied in the past.

David has a proven record of fiscal discipline, community focus, and transparency. He is ready and willing to continue to serve the residents of Herriman as your next Mayor.

Over 18 years ago, my wife and I chose Herriman as the place to build our lives together and raise our children. It was a small community of under 1000 residents with that charming country feel that has drawn so many to want to live 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 if we want them to exist in the future, for our children and the generations to come. A family focused community, with continued preservation of open space and development of parks and trails, coupled with smart and managed development, are key during this phase of rapid growth if we are to uphold our identity moving forward.

From my father, I learned early in my life the importance of community involvement. It takes action in order to move a community in a positive direction. He was never one to stand idly by hoping that everyone else would fight for what is right and what is meaningful. Putting what I learned into action, I began my involvement in Herriman City over 7 years ago when I applied and was appointed to be an alternate on the Planning Commission. Land Use issues are some of the most important and challenging issues a community can face. I wanted to become familiar with these processes and work to see that they were appropriately carried out. The Planning Commission’s job is to ensure that all applications for development within the city conform to the adopted General Plan and meet the ordinances set by the City Council. After 7 years as a member of the Planning Commission, the last 2 years serving as Chair, I have the knowledge and experience to serve this community on the City Council and put in place the ordinances that will guide our development and protect our core values in the future.

My preparation to represent your voice on the City Council is not limited to planning. Just four (4) years ago, my involvement was expanded when I had the unique opportunity to serve 5 months as Herriman’s Interim Mayor after the former Mayor unexpectedly resigned prior to the end of his term. I was appointed to the position based off of my unique insight to the current status of the city due to my involvement and position on the Planning Commission. I was honored to be selected by the members of the City Council to lead the city during an essential time as the possibility of annexation and development threatened to change the landscape of development in our community forever. A steadfastness to our core values, hard work, and open communication between myself, members of the City Council, the Community and City Administration secured us the opportunity to control oversight of that development moving forward.

As your representative on the Herriman City Council for District 2, I will listen to you and advocate for those things that will preserve the core values this community was built on. I will manage growth and encourage smart economic development with the fiscal responsibility the residents deserve. I am well prepared and stand ready to serve.

Please vote for Clint Smith for Herriman City Council District 2

My wife and I have been married for 16 years. We have 4 kids, ages 15, 14, 9 and 5. We moved to Herriman in 2003. We loved the feeling of family and community Herriman City provided with their city events, and their open spaces. We have lived in 3 homes with two of them being built. Our kids are actively involved in sports and activities within Herriman, (baseball, soccer and acting).

I have been a little league baseball coach for a number of years with 2 of my boys. I have been involved with the youth in Herriman in a number of roles. Ranging from interactions with the youth through my profession or as a Boy Scout and Cub Scout leader through my church.

I have over 20 years in law enforcement and have been fortunate to work in a number of specialties during my career. I have been a patrol officer, SWAT officer, K9 handler, K9 Instructor and K9 Judge (certifying dogs to work the road), detective (investigating property crimes, narcotics, homicides, sex offenses) and a Community Oriented Policing Officer. Currently I work in the media services unit as a media specialist where I produce social media content, videos and photographs for the office while filling in as the public information officer when needed.

Over the years I have seen this city grow and expand. As it has grown, Herriman has not kept up with the infrastructure and emergency resources needed to support the growth.

As your city councilman I will have no problem standing up and saying NO to any development or ordinance that I feel the city has not taken the appropriate steps to prepare for; or the residents have clearly stated they do not want it in their city. I will be there to listen to you whether you live in District 2 or not. It is important that all of the elected officials remember the people of this great city elect us and that we work for them.

I will be there for you and I ask you to please vote for Jared Richardson for Herriman City Council District 2.

My name is Melissa John, and I’m excited to announce my candidacy for Herriman City Council District 2.

My husband and I fell in love with Herriman instantly and knew that it was where we wanted to raise our family; we currently have two young children. We love how our community has that tight-knit, small town feeling and yet is so close to all the shopping and recreational areas we could ever need. That balance between residential and commercial development is something that I will fight to preserve as Herriman continues to grow.

As a senior business analyst for, I have developed a number of skills that I would put to use as a member of the City Council: financial planning, balancing the budget, city development, and economic analysis. With that business acumen, I will ensure that the city continues to develop and run smoothly.

I want to bring a fresh perspective to the City Council. I’m not a politician, but I am passionate about civic engagement. I will seek out diverse voices and opinions to find the best solutions to the challenges and problems that face our growing city, and I will represent everyone in District 2 with integrity and compassion.

I look forward to meeting and speaking with all of you. Please reach out to me and share your concerns and/or ideas on how to improve our city. I will be your voice and ensure that your concerns and needs are represented at all times. Let’s work together to improve Herriman.

Vote Melissa John for Herriman City Council District 2.

This past week my daughters and their friends participated in celebrating Herriman Days. Seeing the next  generation’s pride and excitement reminded me of why I’m campaigning too. The best way to celebrate our city is to come together, participate and build something beautiful.

We love Herriman. The welcoming nature of our residents, our beautiful views,  and our diverse people and landscape.

Sometimes I feel like that herd of deer standing where the old farm used to be, wondering what just happened.  Rapid growth can be disorienting and sometimes it might feel like our voices can’t be heard over all of the change, but that’s what I hope to help with as a member of City Council.

Watching and aiding a father who also served as  mayor of the town i grew up in for over a decade has taught me how  important  listening, serving, and  working together with our citizens is to the livelihood of one’s beloved city.

If elected to City Council,  my main focus will be on responsible growth, supporting our diverse community, and accountability. 

I want to help bridge the gap between our citizens  and City Officials. Stand up and be heard.  Your voice counts.

My family and I made Herriman our home over a decade ago.  Living in such a fast-growing community presents some unique challenges but also a wealth of opportunity.  As we grow, we cannot neglect those values and principles that made Herriman what it is.  From roads and parks to schools and public safety, local government has the greatest impact on our daily lives.  We need purpose-driven development focused on those values that build a Community, not just a city.  High growth does not have to mean high density!  A major part of building a Community is giving back.  I have spent years volunteering at City events, with the Arts Council, the School Community Council and PTA.  I am a dedicated coach of youth athletics and volunteer as a football coach at Herriman High School.  I take pride in helping the youth recognize they can achieve their goals through effort and teamwork.  I have spent years working with public safety professionals and am the only candidate in District 3 who truly understands how these issues affect the Community we serve.  I have been attending meetings and paying attention to the issues for many years.  I have served our Community for years and am the best candidate to help shape Herriman’s bright future.
