I have known Jessica since she moved to Mapleton and I have been so impressed with her kindness and her amazing knowledge of everything and her willingness to help and make life better for all with whom she comes in contact. She is patient and firm as she learns about what makes a city and a country better. She really does care about our beautiful city and all of the people who call it home. She will be a great asset to us and she knows what it will take to keep it the city that we all love.

One of the problems with the city council over the past couple of years was a lack of information and transparency. Jessica has already proven that she'll provide more visibility, as she has consistently provided a breakdown of each city meeting she has attended. She has posted this information on social media where she willingly discusses her views with whomever engages her in conversation. If you doubt this, check out her Facebook page "Jessica Egbert for Mapleton City Council." She doesn't have an agenda or business dealings that she is trying to protect, just a desire to serve her community.
Roberta JamesMapleton, Utah
Jessica has concrete and specific ideas on how to solve Mapleton's problems and preserve its unique character in the face of growth and development. Her promises are not just rhetorical but workable. I believe she is willing to put in the time and effort to reach out to Mapleton residents to inform them of pending issues and listen to their feedback as evidenced by her campaign. As a resident of Mapleton for over 50 years, I endorse Jessica Egbert for city council.

I first learned of Jessica's leadership abilities when she was one of the 40 Under 40 for Utah Valley Magazine. Since then, I have been very observant and very impressed on how she has a "People First Leadership" approach. This can be viewed throughout her entire campaign. She has had a straightforward, honest, pragmatic approach and I like her willingness to have crucial conversations about the topics at hand with anyone who is willing to talk to her about it. That is a leader that we all need to represent us well here in Mapleton.
Marcie PerritonMapleton, Utah
Jessica is more than qualified for City Council, but even more important is how genuine she is in wanting to serve our city. I have no doubt she will listen and find solutions for issues at hand. She will educate and inform our community. With the growth Mapleton is experiencing, I am so grateful to have someone like Jessica running.

I’ve known Jessica for 3 years and have worked with her in civic, church and professional roles. I’ve been nothing but impressed by her skill base, work ethic and accomplishments. She is a genuine and kind individual and a fearless and capable leader. I fully support Jessica for Mapleton City Council.
Dr. Richard P. NielsenPresident, Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions - Provo, Utah
Eighteen years ago, I asked Jessica Egbert to help me do something few can even imagine – to build a university. Her hard work, innovation, integrity, and intelligence have resulted in new systems, processes, policies, and traditions that value people, outcomes, and quality of life. Her efforts have brought local and national recognition for the university and she has likewise received local and national accolades (e.g., awards, publications, leadership service, invited presentations). What makes Jessica unique is a combination of analytical, innovative, and people-centric skills. She perseveres through challenges and discovers new ways to solve problems – often in less time and under budget – while inspiring and elevating others along the way. Jessica takes initiative to learn and understand complex situations so she can make informed, mission-driven decisions. She is willing to get her hands dirty to solve problems and support her teams; she is a valued mentor to so many. A skilled strategist, communicator, and compassionate friend, I strongly endorse Dr. Jessica Egbert for the Mapleton City Council.

This includes solving problems, addressing issues, and proactively developing new strategies and direction. She has a remarkable ability to listen to and consider other's perspectives respectfully. She is about action and accomplishing great things, which is what she has done many times in her life and career. She has the talent, passion, and ability to help the citizens of Mapleton City skillfully manage growth while maintaining the virtue and charm of a small Utah town. Jessica Egbert has my full support and endorsement for Mapleton City Council.

Jessica Egbert is a breath of fresh air like the Hobble Creek breeze. She has lived in the area for many years and finally reached her goal to settle in Mapleton. She is brilliant, structured, and has vision that doesn't include cutting up every square inch to sell to housing developers. Jessica is a proven leader, with great ideas, who enjoys getting to know people on a personal level, and listening to their desires for a better community. She then figures out ways to accomplish these goals. My first vote this year is for Jessica Egbert.

Jessica is one of the most amazing people I have ever met, and I meet a lot of people. Jessica has a strong ability to research complex topics, break them down into a manageable size, and find workable solutions to fix the issues at hand. I have seen Jessica do this, successfully, in many settings -- including on the board of the Chamber of Commerce, on retreats where she spoke to women leaders in Utah County, within her own work setting, and more. It is rare to find someone that is as "book smart" as Jessica, that can also relate with any person she meets. She is humble, personable and funny! Mapleton will be blessed to have Jessica on their side!
Jeanette BennettOwner & Editor-in-Chief, Utah Valley Magazine - Cedar Hills, Utah
I've crossed paths with Jessica for more than a decade in the business community. I've interviewed her for Utah Valley Magazine and BusinessQ, and I've observed her in non-profit settings and leadership roles. Jessica stands out as a leader because she takes charge, she has a vision for what needs to happen and the steps to get there. I wholeheartedly endorse Jessica for Mapleton City Council based on her character, integrity, intelligence and work ethic. She will work tirelessly to figure out the best solutions for the city and its residents.

She provides insights as a professional, a community leader, a mother and a human who knows how to see both sides of an issue and pragmatically weigh in - as well as move forward by taking strategic and decisive actions that make a difference.

When I think of Jessica, I see an accomplished, determined, organized, problem-solver, and motivated lady. Her life experiences have shaped her into the person that will exhort an objective mind and a sympathetic heart. Egbert will get things done! She looks through a problem, analyzes it and arrives to a solution after proper consideration and research. Her academic background combined with her natural skill set will make the type of leader that any citizen would be confident and honored to be counseled by. All combined with a sophisticated and sharp sense of humor, a much needed talent in this present political climate, that makes for a well-rounded, fair-minded City Council. So… rest assure out there in Mapleton, if I were your next door neighbor, I would vote for Jessica Egbert…I trust you will too!

Her desire to serve and commitment to her community are unparalleled and when you couple that with her breadth of experience she would be an incredible asset any City Council.
