Salt Lake City

Council District 2

The Westside – Fairpark, Glendale, Poplar Grove


For those who don’t know me, my name is Dennis Faris. In May, the City Council appointed me to fill the District Two seat vacated by Andrew Johnston.

Andrew accomplished great work during his time on the Council. I’m excited to take up the torch and represent the best neighborhoods in Salt Lake City.

Before coming to the City Council, I spent several years working with the Poplar Grove Community Council and have been involved with various issues on the Westside. I am excited to continue my work on the Westside as your District Two Council Member.

Please feel free to contact me or my constituent liaison, Austin Kimmel, at any time.
