City Council Members

Councilmember Ruth Jensen

Councilmember Ruth Jensen said, "Brigham is a beautiful city and growing rapidly, I want to help Brigham City move forward well balanced and appropriately.

"Serving committees like Neighborhood Watch, VIPS, Foster care review program, and Foothill Elementary school board, and volunteering for Meals on Wheels, Boy Scouts of America, the Food Pantry and Hospice, has given me great opportunities to work with a diverse variety of people.

"As a resident for over 15 years, I love Brigham City! Our family is unique with his, hers and ours with a total of 7 boys, we have been accepted into this wonderful environment. Brigham residents support each other regardless of our individual faiths, race, and economic backgrounds.

"It is my privilege and honor to serve such a great community, Thank you."

Tom P.

My name is Thomas W Peterson, I am 35 years old, was born in Brigham City and raised in Perry. I lived in Perry for 18 years, graduated from Box Elder High School and then served a mission for the LDS Church in the South Africa Cape Town Mission. After my mission I became an electrician. I married my wife Jodi in December of 2000 and we have 4 children.

I worked for Brigham City as the Building Inspector from 2005 to 2012 and am currently the Box Elder County Building Official. I have been a member of the Box Elder County Sheriff Search and Rescue team for 9 years, serving second term as Chairman for the Box Elder County Republican Party, currently serve on the Board of Directors for the Utah Chapter of the International Code Council, and President of Peterson Electric. I am a firm believer in service to others. I have lived in Brigham City for 11 years but it has always been home.
The future of our children is important, that is why I feel the need to be involved in making sure that Brigham City is the best place to live, work and play.
