Introducing Becki


Hi there! I'm Becki, and I'm running for City Council.

My husband Jeff and I chose to move our family to Centerville five years ago because it's "a great place to live and play!" I've been happy to call South Davis County home for nearly 25 years now, and think Centerville lives up to its motto of making life better for its residents, recreators, and businesses.

I'm excited for this opportunity to serve our community and believe my training and experience make me a good fit for City Council. I have a Master of Public Administration, serve on the Centerville Parks and Recreation Committee and Stewart Elementary PTA, and I try to be an influence for good wherever I can.

I'm passionate about celebrating our unique community and building upon our strengths by respecting our heritage and keeping a vision for our future. The Future is BRIGHT in Centerville! Pragmatic optimism guides me now and will continue to do so throughout my civic service.

I'm not a career politician or a candidate running to push an agenda. I'm a mother of four, a harpist and triathlete, a celebrator of the arts. I am a citizen willing to do my part for the betterment of our community. I hope you will consider supporting me as a candidate ready to represent you!
