Chris Nichols for Orem Mayor

I am excited to announce that I just filed my letter of intent to fill the Orem Mayor vacancy. Below is my letter to the City Council:

Monday, October 17, 2011

Orem City Council

56 North State Street

Orem, UT 84057

Dear City Leaders,

My name is Chris Nichols and the purpose of this letter is to express my intent to be considered as the next Mayor of Orem City.

It is unfortunate that Orem finds itself in this position. I had the great honor of personally knowing Mayor Washburn. He will be greatly missed. He leaves a legacy that will be remembered for generations.

I remember falling in love with Orem as a BYU student, and I am proud to call it my home for more than a decade. As a REALTOR®, I have had the unique opportunity to help others see the greatness of our city and make it their home as well. My commitment and passion to see Orem continue to be the best city in Utah County is why I feel the strong desire to serve as our next Mayor.

I have the time, the energy, the experience and the vision to lead Orem on a continued path to a prosperous future. As a real estate professional I am afforded the opportunity to have flexibility in my schedule. I have had the unique opportunity to serve in several capacities in the local, state and National Association of REALTORS® over the years. Serving others has given me both renewed energy and experience vital to leading, planning and directing an organization towards common goals and objectives. Like you, I share a vision for Orem that includes a prosperous economy, vibrant neighborhoods and sustained opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of our community.

Please find attached a summary of my qualifications and experience. I believe the relationships I have forged with local, county, state and national leaders from our great state will allow me to serve Orem well as it’s next Mayor.

Regards,

Chris Nichols
