Hi, I’m Don Christensen

I grew up in the West Valley City area and currently live in the house built by my father-in-law in 1957. I love my city and have a strong desire to continue to serve. I served the residents of this city as an elected member of the Utah State Board of Education for 12 years, then was appointed to the Sister City Committee and have served there for the last 25 years. In 2009, I was elected to the City Council and served a four year term. I was asked to serve a full-time mission for my church in 2013. When that ended in 2015, I was re-elected to the City Council.

I pledge to continue to work with all the diverse members of this great city to make each day better for all the residents.

Here’s what I bring to the city as your at large city council member:

I am your current at large city council member, serving in my second term. I attend city council meetings prepared to participate and make votes that benefit the city and its residents. I also work closely with the Utah State Legislature and other leaders to ensure legislative outcomes are best for West Valley City. I will continue to attend each meeting informed, asking the hard questions of staff, and reaching out to the residents for their opinions and concerns.

The proof of a great leader is in the outcomes of his term of leadership. While I have served, West Valley City has prudently managed every tax dollar while revitalizing businesses through careful planning, increased public safety with both innovative and established processes for our police and firefighters, encouraged new businesses to invest in our city, and provided safe parks and recreation activities for our residents of all ages. I will continue to work to further judicious growth and care of our city and those who live, work and visit WVC.

I recognize that my leadership and involvement cannot be limited to just one entity. I serve on many committees related to community and area issues, volunteer opportunities, economic growth and other causes that can provide positive experiences for all who live in our city. I will continue to serve in all possible ways to take advantage of the knowledge and experience of others for the benefit of our community.

I am available and responsive. You can reach me

Thanks so very much to all of you who voted, either for me or my opponent, this is what our great democracy is all about-local voters electing local representation. Thanks to my opponent who ran an honorable campaign.

Fifth Tuesday – No City Council Meeting

This Tuesday is the fifth Tuesday of the month, therefore there will not be a city council meeting. We only meet the first four Tuesdays. Also next week is election night, polls will be open until 8pm so there will be no city council meeting that night either.

WVC and Family

Some folks asked why I have focused so much of this site, and my campaign flyer on my family. Five generations of my family and six of my wife’s family, have lived in our city. I consider every vote I make on the city council as it relates to them as residents and taxpayers.
My family is like most in our city, and I worry about making our city safe for them, affordable for them to live here, and clean and beautiful with opportunities for them to work, to play and enjoy entertainment venues in West Valley City.
When you vote for me, you are voting for the future of all our families.

Mail in that ballot!
