During my 7 years as North Salt Lake’s City Manager, Council Member Matt Jensen was a truly conservative elected official. His decisions reflected an honest concern for community and a creative grasp of complicated city issues. I am confident those same skills will be of great benefit as a State Representative and hardily endorse Matt Jensen for the State Legislature.

While on the City Council, Matt worked to improve commercial development along Redwood Road and was instrumental in bringing Lee’s Marketplace to our community. He knows the local issues affecting us and will champion them just as he fought for our grocery store.

I have known Matt for many years. I have worked closely with him for the past two years on the North Salt Lake City Council. Matt is a man of personal integrity, fiscally conservative, and cares about the common person. Matt has experience of being a City Councilman, he can take that experience to the state level. He knows the need of the district personally and will fight to get the help needed. I am endorsing Matt Jensen for the Utah House of Representative.

Matt Jensen served the North Salt Lake City very well during his eight years on the City Council. He understands and has real-world experience in the legislative process and is not only a strong leader, but also has a keen mind for solving challenging problems. I have the utmost confidence that he is uniquely prepared to serve the citizens of District 20 with distinction and to work productively with the other Utah legislators in passing needed legislature.

Matt Jensen understands that the purpose of government at any level is to take care of the essential business of society. He’s dealt with tough issues on a local level in a manner that convinces me that he can do the same for the State of Utah. I’m proud to support his efforts to serve.

Whenever I see Lee’s Marketplace, I think of Matt. When the rest of us thought it couldn’t be done, he never gave up. Matt’s leadership and dedication to our community is what makes him the right choice for our district.

NSL Live, Matt created a tradition of community involvement and enrichment. He was welcoming, responsive, and an excellent liaison between the committee and the city council. These skills would make him a good representative of his constituents.

Matt Jensen is the most consistently conservative candidate on the ballot. I found that he has a clear understanding of the role that government should and should not play in our lives, a track record of fiscal responsibility, and a clear perspective of the needs of south Davis County. He will represent us well in the State Legislature.
