Sandy City Council member Kris Nicholl announces her candidacy for mayor

Kris Nicholl announced her candidacy for Sandy City Mayor. Kris Nicholl has served on the Sandy City Council since 2012. Prior to her time on the Council, she served on the Planning Commission for 3 years.

“Sandy is the premier city to live, work and play. As a member of the City Council, I have worked on frontlines to make Sandy even better in the future. As Sandy’s Mayor, I am ready to provide responsible leadership so that Sandy is known once again for its successes. With experienced and forward-looking leadership in the Mayor’s office, Sandy City’s future is bright,” said Nicholl.

As Sandy Mayor, Coleman-Nicholl will prioritize the following critical areas of importance:

  • Protecting Sandy’s reputation as a well-managed and friendly community.
  • Funding the needs of Sandy, while keeping taxes low and spending in check.
  • Delivering top-notch municipal services and safe, well-maintained city infrastructure.

Nicholl further stated, “Not only did I grow up in Sandy, but I made the decision to raise my children here, too. I am running for Mayor so they can also choose to raise their children in Sandy with the same opportunities we have all enjoyed: beautiful parks, safe streets, and a thriving economy.”

Nicholl is a lifelong resident of Sandy. She and her husband, Jason bought their first home in Sandy nearly 25 years ago and have two children who enjoy growing in the same area Nicholl grew up. She represents the residents of Sandy City Council District 3 and has owned her small business, Coleman Appraisal, for 30 years.

Among Nicholl’s many achievements on the Council, one of the most significant was converting the Sandy Animal Shelter to a “no-kill” facility. For this and many other successes, Nicholl was awarded the Outstanding Local Elected Official of the Year in 2016.
