CHILDREN'S JUSTICE CENTER

One of my favorites roles is with the Iron County Children's Justice Center (CJC). The CJC has become a second home for me over the years while serving as a Lawn Forssman Officer on the advisory board. Now, as a County Commissioner, I have been honored to be involved in helping to expand services at the CJC to include medical care, mental health care, and comprehensive victim services. 
My family and I have been involved with the CJC's Annual Fun Run for 17 years in addition to the Dancing With the Community Stars event since its beginning. Currently, we are working on finding a new home for the CJC to meet the needs of our community.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

​​I also serve on advisory boards for Iron County Economic Development, Cedar City Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Beaver Iron Garfield Chamber Board. 


Each of these groups are crucial to developing business relationships and promoting the success of our local businesses. These organizations are also important in recruiting the right kind of business and industry to Iron County that will strengthen economic growth in the future.

RESTAURANT AND HOTEL TAX BOARDS

I have the opportunity to ensure that the local taxes collected through restaurants and hotels in the area are dispersed in a way that will make the greatest impact of improvement for our community.

HOMESTEAD STATE PARK

With the goal of protecting our pioneer heritage, I am pleased to serve on the advisory board for the Homestead State Park - an important organization that helps to sustain our past and our future heritage.
