My name is Hyrum Matthews. I am a Union member, a husband, a father, and a lifelong West Jordan resident. The decision to run for City Council was not one that was taken lightly. After talking it over with my wife we decided that this was an opportunity for me to utilize my political knowledge, my skills as a Union member, elected officer and board member, and pair them with my passion for the community so that I may serve the city that I not only grew up in, am now also raising my own family in. 

 My hope is that by giving the blue collar, working class a voice at the table, we will be able to balance the scales and create a healthy place of employment, preserve more open spaces for our residents, revitalize broken shopping districts, and provide affordable living partnerships so our residents and children of our residents may have the opportunity to continue to grow with the City.

If you'd like to learn more about our campaign and what we will fight for, or if you'd just like to talk to get to know me better, I'd welcome any and all questions, comments and concerns. You may contact us via email at Hyrum.Matthews@gmail.com, visit our website at HyrumMatthewsforWestJordan.com or  send us a message through our Facebook page.

We have made our best efforts to spend as much time as possible knocking on every door and shaking every hand, and will continue to do so until our message has reached every corner of our great community. I hope that you will trust and allow me to represent you, and our community on our City Council.

Thank you for allowing me a few moments of your time. I look forward to hearing back from you. Let's get to work!

THANK YOU!

We can't believe how much support we've received over these last few months. The volunteers that have showed up to knock on doors with us, the moral support, participating in community service projects, walking in parades, and of course, the financial support so that we may put out mailers, print off literature to hand out at these events, and more. 
The help we've received from individuals and Unions have been incredibly helpful and appreciated. We truly couldn't do this without you!

We're excited for the Primary election results...and even more excited to Get to Work!

Campaign created!
