Check out our Blog Top 5 Reasons to live in Herriman


Herriman City will continue to be a place to establish roots, create opportunity, embrace our heritage, protect diversity, and promote economic development. And while preserving the “Feel” provide a safe and inviting place to live, work, and play.

The second-fastest growing city on our list, growth was 19% between 2010 and 2012, and residents like its family-friendly atmosphere and safe neighborhoods. The 1,000 acres of open space, parks and trails, a community garden, a skate park and the largest recreational center in Salt Lake County offer a rural atmosphere with plenty to do. Strong consumer demographics – a median age of 24.7 and median household income of $76,509 – predict continued economic growth, making it a great place to start a business. It’s also a great place to seek an education – the University of Utah in nearby Salt Lake City is among the top 100universities in the world.

A message from the Mayor

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.
