City Council Member | Murray City, District 3
Owner | Table 22
How are you involved in changing the landscape of Utah’s business community in regard to DEI?
Murray City has a rich history of cultural diversity and is a place Greek, Italian, Latino and Japanese immigrants called home in its early days. I believe this diversity in perspectives and backgrounds shaped Murray to be a place that values respect, collaboration and community. I’m proud to be continuing this legacy today and championing the voice of my residents and Latino community.
What is your favorite part of your job?
I love serving my community and building bridges between residents, stakeholders and the city. A lot of people feel disconnected from the government, and to overcome that, you need to meet people where they are. In our grassroots campaign, I was focused on meeting people at the door to hear directly from them. From there, I framed my campaign on the needs and hopes of my constituents rather than an agenda. It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s always worth it to see people engage with their community and feel proud about the direction it’s going.
