Welcome to West Valley City

Each of the Welcome to West Valley City signs were done as an Eagle Scout Project. I’m proud of the scout that took the time to recognize the importance of West Valley City

High Schools in WVC

We are proud to have TWO major high schools within West Valley City! Granger High School and Hunter High School almost all of our high school aged residents. Those that don’t attend these two schools attend Cyprus High, Kearns High, or Taylorsville High. All of these are fantastic institutes! We are proud of our students from West Valley!

A Better View

With the rebuilding of 4100 South these wires that cross the road will be buried. This is another example of how West Valley City leaders try to make the view of the city better for all. Other examples are: the use of LED bulbs in all our street lights; being a “Tree City USA” for 24 years; ongoing studies of our buildings’ energy use to improve our carbon footprint; and increasing our tree planting efforts every year for the last fourteen.#westvalleyproud Find me on facebook @reelectdonchristensen or my websiteelectdonchristensen.com

We will miss you, Lila.

Monday morning West Valley City lost a great lady and supporter. Lila Wright was “First Lady” of the city while her husband served as Mayor. Then, after his untimely death, she continued her support for many city committees and PTA groups. I’m sure it was a great reunion on the other side of the veil today. We will all miss you, Lila. 

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: electdonchristensen.com or find me on Facebook @reelectdonchristensen.
