Julie Checketts
for Woods Cross City Council

Julie Checketts
Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  I'm Julie Checketts and I'm running for a seat on the Woods Cross City Council for a two year term.  My opponent is Matt Terry who was appointed to the City Council last December.  I've lived in Woods Cross for 15 years and plan on staying here forever!  I grew up in Bountiful and graduated from WX High School.  I then attended the University of Utah and graduated with a degree in Consumer Studies and Economics.  I've always been interested in the people side of business and I believe that City Governments should too. 
That's why my campaign slogan is:
"A Voice For Residents"
Take a look around and see what I believe we can do to make Woods Cross
an even better city to live in.
Please elect me to be your voice!

Why I'm Running for City Council

I feel that residents need to know someone on the City Council has their back.  Many people think that no one cares and that their opinion doesn't matter, but it does.  It takes a village to raise our future generations and we need to work together to make this the best village out there.  Here are a few things I feel the city could benefit from:

*Planned, Controlled Development-including Commercial and Residential
*Improved Public Safety
*Air Quality and Environment Improvement
*Better Communication and Accountability between the City and Residents
*Better Support of our Law Enforcement Officers and City Employees

Community Involvement

I headed up a group of residents who were against a high density residential development
proposed in main area of the city.  This development was a poor use of land and would have caused more issues with traffic in an already bogged down intersection.  We were able to get the development denied.  Woods Cross is one of the last small towns left and we need to be mindful of the type of growth we allow and make sure we have the necessary infrastructure in place to support the growth. 
I currently serve as the chairman of the WX City Air Quality Board and we meet with area
industries to discuss ways to improve our air quality, environment, and provide education to our residents.
I’m a member of the United Women’s Forum that has started a campaign—Safe Internet for Utah Kids.  We are working on holding companies accountable for providing filters to protect our kids from damaging images on the internet.
