Sheldon dramatically increased communications and engagement with city residents. This effort included increased social media presence with two-way communication, website with self-service features, and establishing service level agreements. Sheldon is available and responsive with proactive outreach efforts. Sheldon is committed to increasing communication and efforts to support the communities he represents by ensuring that the community is heard and that residents concerns don’t go unanswered.
Sheldon is active in the efforts to promote the economic growth within our community. His innovative approach to this has resulted in zero tax and fee increases for 6 years straight in Riverton. Annual budgets are always balanced and have only seen a 7% increase in general fund expenditures over 5 years, compared to the county’s general fund spending which has increased by over 30% with reduced services and funding to the communities in the south west region of the county. Sheldon will ensure that efforts are taken to reduce spending in and address the subsidies that burden each of you and that our area receives its fair share.
Sheldon has helped to attract develop and grow business and business opportunities in Utah and Riverton. Sheldon has been active in building relationships with member of GOED (Governor’s Office of Economic Development) and helped to attract businesses to Riverton that create re-occurring revenue that provides an ongoing stream of income to residents vs. one time revenue that is only realized in a given year. Sheldon has been involved in responsible growth and development. Sheldon will ensure that the county gets out of the zoning and land use business and ensures that the communities are able to make those decisions instead of county members outside our area as was done with Olympia Hills. Sheldon will continue to fight for our community.
Sheldon was key in the formation of the Riverton Police Department and in the exit of the taxing districts for both police and fire. These actions saved residents money and increased public safety. As a member of the Unified Fire Authority Board Sheldon brought transparency and accountability to the organization. Sheldon is committed to addressing the county subsidies to Unified Police Department for Shared Services that the residents of District 5 don’t benefit from since they are not members of this organization.
