Dirk Burton's twenty years of city service and thirty years of community service has prepared him to be West Jordan's Mayor.

 

Dirk knows the legislative process well and works closely and effectively with current local, state and federal representatives and leaders.

 

Throughout the legislative process, Dirk has created and sponsored state bills, fought against and defeated unreasonable laws and ordinances, and helped preserve multi-state reciprocity for electrical contractors. He has also created and amended rules governing contractors and electricians at the state level.
