Mayor (One Seat)
12452 S Cheval Court
Herriman, UT 84096
I moved to Herriman with my wife, Christi, in 2013. We love living here and the wonderful sense of community we have in Herriman.
I am running for mayor to ensure that as Herriman grows, our community retains the values, character, and livability that have made our city the best city to live in.
I worked closely with many neighbors in organizing Utah for Responsible Growth. We stood up for our community while neighboring projects like Olympia Hills tried to add massive congestion to our roads.
I am ready to hit the ground running and work with YOU – the residents – to ensure we keep our quality of life. It is going to take someone with experience, someone who is trusted, and someone who is invested in our community to make this happen.
My goals as Mayor of Herriman:
- Work to create more community places, trails, youth sports fields, and other desired amenities.
- Improve the quality of life for residents through improved infrastructure, citywide broadband, and a broad economic tax base.
- Advocate for all housing types to be built in the city with a focus on more single-family homes.

My mom and dad instilled in me a deep sense of duty to community. I was born and raised in Draper and learned the value of community service watching my father serve in many different ways throughout the city. My mom also served with the volunteer ambulance service, whenever the pager went off she would respond, no matter day and night. They were dedicated to being trustworthy, working hard, and helping others.
We’ve had some challenges in the Mayor’s office in recent years, and at this critical time, it is important that we restore trust and accountability.
- I am passionate about serving the citizens of Herriman in a way that restores trust and confidence. More than ever, an unwavering commitment to Reinvigorate Outreach to Citizens, Transparency and Accountability are paramount.
I began working in the Fire/EMS service in 1993 as a volunteer on a Draper City Ambulance. I’ve worked in different roles throughout the Valley, including many different leadership positions. I have been a firefighter, paramedic, and LifeFlight medic. I currently serve as the Fire Chief in Draper, where I was asked to build the department from the ground up. It’s rewarding to be where my mother served and where I started.
- I have extensive experience working with municipal government, responsible municipal budgeting, prioritizing needs, and creatively solving problems, through both good and difficult times. I understand the direct affect that City decisions can have on quality-of-life issues for people.
- To successfully resolve challenges we have to realize that, what may initially seem like an easy answer, is often much more difficult when the limitations of reality and unintended consequences are considered. There are no easy answers to housing issues, but we can employ a variety of tools to address crowding - Increased setbacks, limits to the percentage of rentals allowed, innovative landscaping are just some of those options.
My wife Tangie and I moved to 20 years ago when there were about 1,000 people here. We loved the “Herriman Feel” and it just really fit who we are.
- We must prioritize staying Family Oriented, Keeping Open Spaces, and Providing a variety of Recreational Opportunities.
- Growth has brought many challenges that must be addressed by proactively engaging with citizens in a very transparent, reasoned, conscientious way that fosters that ‘Herriman Feel.’
I served on the Planning Commission for eight years; elected as Chair for the last five. In August 2013 I was appointed and served 5 months as Interim Mayor and worked hard re-establishing the City’s vision and priorities following the resignation of the Mayor. I was later elected to the City Council in 2018.
- Economic growth will continue to be priority of mine, working on the Anthem Commercial Center with Winco as anchor; Herriman Corners, including VASA Fitness and Ace Hardware; Lee’s Market under construction near The Real Complex; and the Automall property with surrounding commercial, including The Garage Grill.

City Council District 2 (One Seat)
5503 W Bilston Lane
Herriman, UT 84096
Our family started in Herriman, and before our second child was born we were ready to build our dream home, and like you we picked Herriman. I love our community, my neighbors, and all the wonderful amenities that make Herriman great. However, I am also aware of the many challenges that face our City and the residents.
I am uniquely qualified to understand, and more importantly how to address these challenges by serving on the City Council. Not only do I have my experience as a resident of Herriman, I was previously employed with Herriman City, and have met many of you. I have worked with residents on understanding and solving their critical issues. My experience with the City has given me incredible insight on how I can make a difference. I understand the role of government, and I know from the inside what it takes to maintain our quality of life.
I attended the University of Utah and received a BS in Political Science with a minor in psychology. My internship was with the Hinckley Institute working with the Utah legislation for the Utah Department of Higher Education. This experience impressed upon me the importance of making sure our voices are heard at every level of government.
My two most important titles were earned while living in Herriman — wife and mother. My husband Mynor Escobar, and my two wonderful sons, Sebastian and Oliver are my number one motivation to make a difference in the community. I want my family to enjoy the parks, trails, Herriman Hills and all the wonderful events provided by the City.
As a member of the City Council I will be dedicated to making sure the City is fiscally sound, and supporting economic development as a key to provide a secure financial future.
My platform includes:
- Economic Development, making Herriman City a center of opportunity
- Public Safety - Herriman Police Department & Unified Fire Authority
- Preserve open space
- Address transportation and infrastructure needs
- Manage growth
- Inclusive city
