David Rodgers for Murray City Council District 1

I’ve always had a strong connection to the Murray area. Some of my favorite memories are of visiting the Fun Dome on Galleria Drive, spending time with my family at Wheeler Farm, and going shopping for the holidays at Fashion Place Mall. After graduating from Granger High School, I went on to attend Salt Lake Community College before living in the United Kingdom for two years. After coming back to Utah, I attended Southern Utah University in Cedar City, graduating with a degree in Criminal Justice and a Masters in Public Administration. After college, I was eager to come back north to be near family and friends and was thrilled to be able to make Murray my home.

Since moving back to the Wasatch Front, I have had the opportunity to work in local government, starting as an intern for the Provo City Council and going on to do land-use planning for Sandy City and Saratoga Springs. Now my day job is working as a Transportation Planner for Salt Lake County, where I have been able to make connections with elected officials and staff throughout the county while working on a variety of projects that include roadways, bike paths, and bus and train routes. When I’m not working at my day job or serving on the Murray City Council I enjoy cycling on the Jordan River Trail, traveling around the state, and visiting Murray’s amazing parks and swimming pools.

As the newest member of the Murray City Council, I am excited to bring my planning expertise to the table as I work with staff, council members, the Mayor, and residents to serve our great community. I am incredibly grateful to both Kat Martinez and Phil Markham for the great work they have done on the council and the example they have been as leaders and representatives for our city. I am looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that come with being on the council and am enjoying bringing an energy and excitement that I hope will break down barriers and encourage residents to be as involved as possible as our city makes important decisions. 

I want to be as accessible as possible to ensure that every member of our community has their voices heard. I have included my personal contact information if you want to get in touch with me for any reason. I look forward to hearing from you!
