Kendalyn Harris for Bountiful City Council
"Your voice, your vision"
Kendalyn (Keyes) Harris (38) was raised in Bountiful, Utah and is the daughter of Karl and Cozette Keyes. After graduating from Viewmont High, she earned Bachelors degrees in Political Science and Communications from the University of Utah. That same year she married Bountiful native James Harris (yes, they have gotten past the Viking-Brave rivalry).
Kendalyn served as an Intern at the Utah State Legislature for two fine Representatives and was elected President of the Senate in the Utah Intercollegiate Assembly. She worked as a Traffic Reporter and a DJ (weekends at 107.5 "The End") during her time at the University of Utah where she was also a Student Court Justice, K-UTE 1620am Station Manager and Homecoming Queen.
SLC Mayor Deedee Corradini appointed Kendalyn to the Community Development Block Grant Board where she served from June 1997 until July of 2001.
Kendalyn worked as a Olympics Housing Rental Coordinator with Coldwell Banker during the Olympics, and an Office Supervisor at the University of Utah Hospital. She summarized news stories as a News Archivist at Utah News Clips and was later elected as the Finance Chair at the University Student Apartments where she served for two years before her family moved back to Bountiful in 2005.
Being elected to serve as the President of the Davis County Republican Women gave Kendalyn a great opportunity to become engaged in local issues and to get to know community leaders. She then worked as a Non-partisan Caucus Education Ambassador giving presentations to groups on "how to get involved in politics at the grassroots level" and was later elected to serve on the State Central Committee, the governing body for the Utah Republican Party for 2 years. Kendalyn has canvassed neighborhoods for voter registration drives and helped on several campaigns. She also founded an award-winning business "Pirate & Princess Parties" that serves families all along the Wasatch Front.
Kendalyn and James have four children ages 6-13 and reside in Bountiful.
