Farmington City's New Mayor 2022
Farmington is changing. While some change is good, there is also a need to stay rooted to our past and the unique traits that make Farmington great. We have big challenges, including the development of the office park; West Davis Corridor and litigation with UDOT; safe and sustainable water; sufficient emergency and police services; traffic and congestion; street maintenance; sidewalks to protect our children; broadband solutions; housing density; and recreational opportunities (expansion of the swimming pool, pickleball courts, etc.).
I'm running for Mayor because I believe that we can steer Farmington to a better future. I'm committed to listening to the people. For we are the City. I've spent the last 20 years as an attorney finding solutions for my clients and negotiating resolutions to complex issues. I am a proven problem solver. With 5 years on Planning Commission and nearly 6 years on City Council, I've seen and experienced what it takes to build and preserve our City. I'm certain that we can continue to overcome our challenges, preserve what is best in our City, and move forward with confidence.
CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATES
Melissa Allphin Layton
For eleven years I have lived, shopped, worked and actively participated in the Farmington community. I appreciate the vibrant and welcoming feel Farmington offers, and how the residents support and help each other.
I have served on our Elementary and Jr High Community Council for six+ years. I have a Bachelors degree from the University of Utah and have served as both a State and County delegate. I can appreciate and understand the sacrifices our leaders/volunteers make to help our community run efficiently and effectively.
My husband Jeremy and I are parents to seven children. Our family is involved with the recreation sports programs, and we love utilizing the hiking and biking trail systems.
I am not coming to the political scene with any personal agenda; rather I am a mother, wife, teacher, citizen, and neighbor. I am willing to listen, learn, and honorably represent the citizens of Farmington!
Alex B. Leeman
Since 2015, I have been engaged in Farmington's citizen government as a planning commissioner and city councilman. My commitment and experience set me apart from other candidates. As your councilman:
- I will keep developers in check and make sure development is good for Farmington, not just developers. I will preserve the character of our town and ensure Farmington stays a clean and safe place to live, work, shop, and play.
- I will keep taxes low and diversify our tax base so homeowners pay a smaller share of the city budget.
- I will ensure our transportation infrastructure and city services can support anticipated growth.
- I will expand our trail system and make our new 18-acre park something special, not just cookie-cutter soccer fields and playground equipment.
I listen. I respond to every email. I answer questions. I solve problems. Learn more about my priorities at www.fb.com/Leeman4Farmington.
