Jared and with his wife of 25 years and 3 children have lived in Herriman since 2009. He is asking for your vote and support to continue working for common sense solutions in our city. 

Jared became a leader in the community by organizing his friends and neighbors when the city failed to listen to its residents regarding development. This became the grassroots effort for Responsible Growth. He has since volunteered his time, energy and resources to change the way the city operates from the inside out. Those efforts include leading the way for many other concerned citizens to become involved, changes in city management and the separation from UPD and UFSA saving Herriman taxpayers millions of dollars while increasing the level of service. Jared has a proven record of voting against high density housing, preserving and encouraging commercially viable zoning, holding developers and the city accountable by truly representing his neighbors. 

Jared has a degree in Finance, is a Certified Financial Planner with over 20yrs of experience. He loves coaching youth soccer and helping his family, friends and neighbors enjoy living in Herriman.

Chris Roberts portrait

As my family started to build our home in Herriman over three years ago, we fell in love with the community. I am honored to be running for Herriman City Council District 1. I look forward to serving in this capacity and want to focus on influencing the right growth to ensure Herriman keeps its charm while we continue to evolve.

My priorities for Herriman are:

  • Working together to ensure responsible growth
  • Safety and wellness
  • Mountain View Corridor

The rapid growth we are experiencing in the southwest corner of Salt Lake County is record-setting. As we grow, we must make decisions and work together ensuring we maintain our quality of life by empowering business, economic development, and community growth that keeps Herriman an outstanding place to live.

In my professional life, I have served the public in Law Enforcement for over 15 years. I am a leader in training peace officers in crisis intervention and de-escalation across our state. My experience working in government has taught me how important elected leadership and representation is in every community. I look forward to serving on the Herriman City Council.
