Drew Clark's Vision for Orem


Orem Construction Update

I'm attending the Orem City Council pre-meeting, and one interesting item from the meeting is the creation of a new construction map by the Department of Public Works. The City says that this map will be updated weekly, as a way to provide citizens with information about what construction activities are happening where.

Some Background About Drew Clark

I am Drew Clark, a Journalist, Lawyer and Leader. I’m running for City Council because Orem needs to finish the job of getting better broadband internet service to all.

I moved my family to Orem to use our city’s fiber-optic network. Yet only one-third of citizens have access, even though everyone now pays about $9 a month in taxes to support it. This is not acceptable.

Orem has three options. (1) Do nothing. This means everyone pays, but only one-third benefits. (2) Ask the current infrastructure provider to build all of Orem, for a fee. (3) Put out a Request for Proposal, seeking a private company to finish our open access network. I support either option two or three. As a member of the Public Works Advisory Commission, I’ve been leading for consensus on the best approach.

I’m an entrepreneurial journalist and lawyer. I’ve started media companies including BroadbandBreakfast.com and the Utah Breakfast Club. I’ve written for many newspapers, including the Deseret News, where I was Opinion Editor and weekly columnist.

My law firm Drew Clark PLLC represents families in adoption and custody cases, and advises startups and entertainment clients on incorporating businesses and non-profits.
