Cedar Park City Council Place 6

Heather Jefts

Occupation: Small business owner

Top priorities: Reduce traffic and improve transit options; develop Lakeline Park and trail networks; ensure Bell Redevelopment lives up to its promise

Why are you running for this position?

HJ: I'm running because I love this community, and we deserve better than political games, divisiveness, and unnecessary controversies. I want to bring back compassion, inclusivity, and transparency as well as a renewed focus on just the issues facing Cedar Park families, namely, reducing traffic, improving affordability, and maintaining public safety.

How will you help Cedar Park recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic?

HJ: I would partner with the Chamber of Commerce for small business advocacy. With the Disaster Declaration, there may be opportunities for more grants we can distribute to local businesses. We still have a lot of people unemployed and can help those residents with billing/fees and shut-offs, while directing them to nonprofits that provide additional support services.

Dorian Chavez

Occupation: Regional Account Executive, Sales, Pharmaceutical Cleanroom Supply

Top priorities: Ensure proper funding of Police/Fire emergency services; proper management of remaining land in Cedar Park; attracting strong economic growth

Why are you running for this position?

DC: Lower taxes, funding of police/fire, maintaining the city. Only focusing on these goals is not an option anymore. Our council, school and other government offices are being infiltrated by cultural Marxist groups that will destroy our city and country if we don’t stand against it! Cedar Park is not an exception with a Mayor and 2 councilmen fitting the bill.

How will you help Cedar Park recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic?

DC: Ensure we tap into all state and federal funding to help reimburse our city, businesses and citizens where possible. I would also encourage our citizens to shop and eat locally. Continue to advocate the opening of all businesses and schools within the city at 100% because everybody’s job is essential.
