My name is Logan Shumway and have lived in San Juan County nearly my entire life. San Juan County and Blanding are special places to me. I have chosen to raise my family here because of what this area and the people that live here represent.
I attended BYU and graduated with a Chemical Engineering as well as a Chemistry degree. I currently work for Energy Fuels at the White Mesa Mill as a process engineer and recently as the Mill Manager. I have been very fortunate to be able to use my education so close to home and have been able to gain experience working with people and budgets among other things.
Over the past several years I have attended many city council meetings. I learned that a lot of important decisions are made in these meetings that have long term effects for the residents of Blanding as well as the surrounding area.
I have observed many people on the city council and in other important local positions that have put a lot of effort into ensuring that this area continues to be a great place to live and I hope to add to their efforts.
I describe my political views as conservative and believe that government should not be bigger than the people it represents. I believe in being financially conservative and that one of the duties of a good government is to limit the financial burdens placed on citizens and businesses. For things that cannot be handled by individuals or private entities government becomes necessary.
