The Best of WestFest

Best picture of the WestFest Parade was this child sitting in the Police BATT Vehicle. This vehicle is an armored rescue vehicle used by the police department to protect their personnel in serving arrest and search warrants, and rescuing hostages from dangerous situations. Children were comfortable in the vehicle because their dad was with them. Happy Father’s Day one and all.

West Fest Parade 2019

After 5 years the WestFest Parade is back and I enjoyed participating in it today very much. I had a chance to see many of West Valley’s residents both as spectators and as participants. I’m proud to represent these people! 

We restored this MG as a family project. It’s a fun ride!


Even with threatening weather, crowds are enjoying the carnival at WestFest tonight. WestFest runs through Saturday, beginning at 10AM each day. Carnival will be here until noon on Sunday. #westvalleyproud web page: or find me on Facebook @reelectdonchristensen.

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
