Biography for Jonathan (Jon) Fidler

My family moved to Utah from California when I was a toddler. I graduated from Spanish Fork High School and then served a couple years for my church as well as several years for our state in the Utah National Guard.

Education:
BS in Computer Science at Westminster College
AS in Computer Science at Salt Lake Community College

I currently work as the web applications developer at Westminster College and thrive on the idea of constantly learning and the computer field has created this environment for me. I also have, as well as my wife, an amateur radio operator license (General Class).

I currently live in Taylorsville and have six children ranging in age from 2 to 19 years old, all have been primarily raised in Taylorsville.

I feel the proper role of the government is less government, so when I was informed the city was going to outsource our city's primary safety responsibilities while raising taxes, I had to object. I created, organized, and distributed a petition to override the city council's decision to annex our Fire Department. After collecting about double the needed signatures, we successfully pushed the decision to a ballot vote in November 2013. (This year!)

I am open to discuss issues from the people. Please use the "Contact Me" link if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Thank you,
