Colby Monson

Colby Monson has a great love for Blanding. Having been raised in Blanding he knows just how great this community is and he wants it to be just as great for his children and future generations.

His parents, Rich and Sheila Monson as well as his brothers and sister helped him develop a great love and passion for the outdoors and encouraged him to be involved in the community whether it be through school, sports, church, city-sponsored events, and work.

Colby and his wife Michelle have been married almost ten years and have called Blanding “home” for nine of those years. They have three children, Chelby (eight), Brantley (three), and Huntley (17 months).

Colby has worked for Lyle Northern Electric for almost eight years as an apprentice electrician and is proud of the skills he has acquired that he can use to make Blanding a better place.  

Michelle works for Utah Navajo Health System in the dental department and enjoys getting to serve the community in the health care setting. Chelby attends Blanding elementary and loves that she can walk to and from school every day.

“I have always felt safe, loved, and at home in Blanding and when I think about my family that is what I want for them as well. I want my kids to be safe and looked out for when they ride their bikes to the park or snow shack.

“I want to continue being a part of a community that helps lift each other up, that looks out for and serves one another. I want what’s best for all of us in this community and while some opinions may differ from others, bottom line, everyone’s common goal is family, security, and happiness.”

When Colby is not at work you can find him either helping his parents at Monson’s Quality Meat Processing where he is a butcher or in his side-by-side exploring the mountains with his family.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity of being more involved in my community. I love this town and the people in it. Taking care of a town and a community is not a one-man show. It requires leaders who will actively listen, hear, and advocate the hopes, dreams, ideas, concerns, fears, and desires of members of the community.

“I’m a friend and I want what’s best for all my friends. I’ve had some great leaders in my life who have been great examples and who have made me who i am today. I hope to be just as influential as they are/were.
