Eagle Mountain Mayor Heather Jackson Endorses U.S. Congressional Candidate Stephen Sandstrom in 4th District Race

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2012) - Mayor Heather Jackson of Eagle Mountain City, a neighboring community next to Saratoga Springs, today endorsed U.S. Congressional candidate Stephen Sandstrom in the 4th District race. With the original intent of not wanting to endorse and knowing the top three candidates very well, Mayor Heather Jackson changed her mind and decided it was necessary to endorse Sandstrom to support the most experienced, professional and mature candidate in the race.

"While all three candidates bring various qualities to this new district race, there is only one that brings the professionalism, resources and know-how needed to retire Matheson and get the job done in Washington," said Jackson. "Stephen's experience as a multi-issue legislator is exactly what Utah needs to get back on track and moving toward economic prosperity."

Mayor Heather Jackson has lived in Eagle Mountain for 14 years, almost its entire history. She previously served as a city council member from 2006-2008, and has been serving as Mayor ever since. Jackson is married with four boys ranging from three to 14 years old. Her family, including her husband, has served in several branches of the military, including the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force and Merchant Marines.

Eagle Mountain City is a master-planned community that sits just 40 miles southwest of Salt Lake City at the western base of Lake Mountain. Eagle Mountain's population has grown from 250 residents to more than 23,000, becoming one of the state's fastest growing communities. The population is expected to grow at 10 percent over the next several years.
