Washington City 2019 City Council Candidate Forum
October 17, 2019 @ 7:00 PM
My name is Troy Belliston. I grew up in Southern Utah and have built a wonderful family, a great business, and have strived to serve in one form or another for most of my adult life. As a young man I swore an oath to serve, protect and defend the constitution of the United States in service to our country and have swore that same oath to serve our community four years ago. It’s been a true honor to have had the opportunity to serve on the city council over the last four years. I love this community and would appreciate the opportunity to serve again for another term.
I love Washington. I have worked and lived in the Southern Utah area for 19 years. With the current climate of the City growth we need to do it right and plan accordingly. With my 15 years of planning and engineering background, and 2.5 years on planning commission, I can be an asset to the community. As the father of 3 very active boys, I look at them often and wonder about their future. Will our town be better for them than it was for me? I want to make sure that our community continues thriving well into the future.
Asking for your vote is not something that I take lightly. With a lifetime of service and experience as a local teacher, business owner and community leader, I will serve with no conflicts. Conservative common sense, hard work and genuine devotion is what you can expect. Growth, Water and Power Rates are my priorities. Please visit my Website at, WWW.Ivie4Me.com. View Endorsements and Watch 20 Videos. Some of their titles are: Leadership, Business, Pros Cons, Water, Memorial Day Speech, Veterans, Commitment, Common Sense, Conservative, Apprised, and Why. My duty will be dictated by, “Not being right, but Doing right!
There are many reasons why I am running and they are found on the Core Objectives page of my site, www.benforwashingtoncity.com. Please visit the site to learn more about me and what I would like to accomplish while in office in Washington City.
I’m running because I believe we can do better. I served on the planning commission and a term on the council before choosing to take a break so others could serve, hopeful Washington City was on course. However, since then I’ve witnessed budgets enlarged, citizens’ voices over an off-ramp and zone changes dismissed, flooding issues remain unresolved, and government roll forward unchecked. It’s time to get back to representing people and their concerns first. It’s time to plan for the future and balance growth with the best interest of citizens at heart. It’s time we do better.
I first got my start with Washington City as a volunteer in 2013, which lead to a job at the Washington City Community Center as the Events Coordinator. I currently serve on the board for the St George Area Chamber of Commerce. In running for city council I want to be involved with current and future developments while also being wise with our city budget. I want to hear our communities concerns and constructive ideas. Community Connection is really important to me and I want to make sure our community is more connected between its citizens and city.
