Ja Eggett (Eliminated) - Council Candidate


Ja Eggett and his wife Donna have lived in Layton for the past 20 years and have enjoyed the opportunities Layton City has provided for them and their four children.

Ja worked for Layton City as the Park Planner for 10 years. That experience uniquely qualifies Ja and gives him an advantage over other candidates, as he understands city management. He has an understanding and appreciation for the issues facing the city as it grows and develops. Ja was involved in the process of meeting with citizens, developers and city staff, and has a wonderful working relationship with all parties.

Ja has been a scout leader and little league baseball coach. Ja is an avid outdoorsman which led him to become a volunteer Hunter Education Instructor. Over the past 15 years he has shared his love of the outdoors with thousands of students throughout the community. This love of the outdoors also led to his current position as an Assistant Hunter Education Coordinator with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.

Ja understands there are many sides and concerns to each issue, if you are willing to listen and be creative you can find common ground and resolve most issues.
