The City of Vineyard is the fastest-growing city in Utah. This great accomplishment presents itself with a lot of new and exciting challenges on how we grow; both in the economic and housing market. A couple of things I want to accomplish as your City Councilwoman:
- I want to be an advocate for smart housing growth across our city. Vineyard needs to be a City where we can work and play without the hassle of traffic, congestion, and the concerns of crime.
- I want to make sure we ramp up the construction of our town center and bring in the right businesses that will serve the community best.
- I want to make sure our growth does not affect our quality of life. Our families need the necessary recreational amenities that make Vineyard an attractive place for years to come.
I am a huge advocate and supporter of our first responders: police and fire. Vineyard is a growing city and I want to look at ways to continue making our community safe by adding more full-time officers to promote the safety and welfare of all residents in Vineyard.
Many families enjoy taking their families on bike rides, the splash pad, a local soccer park, a swimming pool, etc. I want to improve upon our successes by looking at ways to add a library, a recreational facility, more pickleball courts, and more parks for our families to play. I also think that we need to be water conscious as we build some of these facilities taking into account our statewide water usage.
When the pandemic forced my husband out of the job last year and my work was only part-time, it was imperative that I stood by a budget and lived within my means. I also had to get creative on how I made money, so I became a successful entrepreneur serving many families in Vineyard. I’m going to bring that same fiscal conservatism and innovative thinking if elected to office. Taxpayer dollars should be handled with care, and I want to make sure that I look out for not only the financial wellbeing of Vineyard, but especially its residents.
