About Janene Burton

Hello, my name is Janene Burton, a candidate for the Santa Clara City Council. I have a rich background in education, politics, and community service.

I was raised in West Jordan, Utah, and graduated from Bingham High School and later pursued higher education at Utah State University. I hold a bachelor’s degree in education, with a focus on history and dance, and a master’s degree in health and physical education. My dedication to education was recognized when I was awarded the KSL Radio Teacher of the Year. My hope is that I positively impacted the thousands of students I taught.

I am a mother of four awesome children and a grandmother of ten beautiful grandchildren.  I moved to Santa Clara with my husband, Paul about four years ago.  We developed a deep love for the community and its history.  I am proud of my pioneer heritage in this area.

I have been actively involved in Utah politics for over 25 years, serving in various roles such as a state and county delegate, a member of the State Central Committee for a few terms, and the Utah Director of U.S. Term Limits. I have served on many campaigns in our state. I was the past president of the Women's Republican Club in SLC, and I continue to serve on the Washington County board. I’ve been an officer in the Toastmaster’s Club, and I am a member of the Rotary Club of St. George.

I hold the title of Ms. Senior Utah, USA, which I use as a platform to inspire seniors and Veteran’s to remind them of their value and that it’s never too late to dream.  

Why I am Running for Santa Clara City Council

As I run for the Santa Clara City Council, I am particularly passionate about five issues:

  • I want to be the voice and represent Santa Clara residents.
  • I want to preserve the Santa Clara historic district.
  • My family had agricultural land, I understand and want to protect water rights.
  • I am an advocate for single residential neighborhoods, over high-density housing.
  • I taught the Constitution for over 26 years and want to uphold the Constitution in my decision-making process.

Since I am retired and a widow, I have the time, passion, and leadership for this position.  I hope I can count on your vote. Write-in “Janene Burton” for Santa Clara City Council.
