Hello, I’m Clayton Corey, and I’m excited to announce my candidacy for the Fountain Hills Town Council. My vision is centered on collaboration, sustainability, and building a thriving community for everyone. cool

Having lived in Fountain Hills for over eight years, I have been deeply committed to serving our community. Now, I am eager to expand my contribution as a member of the Town Council. My vision for our town includes enhancing our infrastructure, promoting economic growth and community vitality, and achieving a balance between responsible development and preservation. I aim to welcome new residents to enrich our cultural, economic, and educational landscape. These new members of our community will drive business development, create diverse housing opportunities, ensure long-term economic stability, and bring innovative ideas that support sustainability.

My involvement with the Fountain Hills Dark Sky Association and the International Dark Sky Discovery Center has deepened my appreciation for our town’s unique dark skies. As Secretary of Fountain Hills Sister Cities, I have broadened my perspectives, and my experience with the Fountain Hills Leadership Academy has given me valuable insights into local governance and public services.

I have also been an active contributor to our community through non-profit organizations like Sunset Kiwanis, Vision Fountain Hills, and the Fountain Hills Community Foundation. My commitment was recognized in 2018 when I was honored as the Community Volunteer of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce.

As a member of the Planning & Zoning Commission and the Board of Directors of the Fountain Hills Sanitary District, I have played a significant role in shaping the future of our town, focusing on sustainable development and essential services. Professionally, with over a decade of experience at CVS Health in managing IT Support Operations and Infrastructure Platform Engineering, I bring a blend of technology and business expertise to the table.

I envision a Fountain Hills that values its heritage while embracing inclusivity, growth, and community-driven progress. I invite you to engage with me as we collaboratively shape the future of Fountain Hills.

Enhancing our Town's Infrastructure

It’s crucial for the wellbeing of our community to modernize and maintain our infrastructure, encompassing roads, sidewalks and public facilities, to accommodate our needs today and in the future. The current state of our streets requires smart, strategic repairs that involve and consider the entire community.

Let’s work together to ensure our infrastructure is robust and reliable for everyone.

Promoting Economic Growth and Community Vitality

Attracting new families to our community will invigorate our economy and enrich our educational landscape. Their active participation will foster stronger community engagement, bring fresh perspectives, and contribute to our diversity, ensuring long-term stability and promoting a vibrant, healthy lifestyle. Families will support our small businesses and create an environment for new businesses to emerge and thrive.

Balancing Responsible Development with Preservation

Finding the right balance between thoughtful development and preserving our open spaces, landscapes, and unique charm of Fountain Hills is a responsibility I take to heart. I aim to uphold the beauty and environmental quality of our area, including our cherished dark skies. At the same time, I am committed to supporting well-planned development that benefits our community as a whole and grow responsibly.
