Terry's Guiding Principles
Honoring our past while planning for a bright future
I have a vision and a plan to keep Orem family friendly coupled with a deep love and connection with Orem.
I grew up picking fruit in Orem's orchards, swimming at the Scera Pool and then working at the Scera Theater scraping gum off the floor and under the seats. While these were not my favorite jobs, they did teach me the value of taking pride in our beautiful city.
Our family is working together on this campaign to preserve the values Orem was established on.
Listening to your concerns
Many Orem families, including my own family, have felt powerless and voiceless when decisions have been made with very little input or regard for the opinions of the affected citizens.
I want to change the way our city notices zone changes and additional community town hall events to allow for more transparency and opportunity for collaboration, not just a quick comments at council meetings.
Working together to protect our neighborhoods
Our neighborhoods are the core of our community, How we handle growth in or near our neighborhoods is the biggest issue facing Orem.
Many Orem families, including my own, have been affected by the numerous high density apartment complexes, increased traffic congestion, school closure, friends moving and great businesses leaving Orem.
I believe Orem is still a fantastic place to raise a family and operate a business but to keep it that way we need to make some changes.
