West Jordan, UT — The West Jordan City Council is pleased to name David R. Brickey as city attorney. The City Council approved Brickey at the Feb. 10 Council meeting. Brickey was selected from a pool of more than 30 applicants.
“David brings not only a proven track record of trial experience, but knowledge of land use issues and governmental oversight,” City Manager Mark R. Palesh said. “He will be an asset to our team.”
Brickey has worked in the public sector for more than 20 years, including 10 years as Summit County Attorney where he supervised seven attorneys and six staff members. He also spent more than seven years there as the Deputy County Attorney and has extensive experience in planning and land use decisions. Most recently he has worked in private practice as a civil litigator.
“I enjoy working in the public sector and work hard to earn the trust of those I serve,” Brickey said. “I understand the challenges that can come from a politically charged environment, and work to bring transparency and leadership to the process.”
Early in his career, Brickey worked for Sen. Orrin Hatch, Gov. Norman H. Bangerter and Lt. Gov. W. Val Oveson. He was awarded the 2014 “Park City Police Chief’s Choice Award” for support of the Park City Police Department and the Park City community. Brickey was also chosen by fellow County Attorneys as the 2012 “County Attorney of the Year.”
Brickey earned his Juris Doctor from Willamette University and holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Utah in psychology. He and his wife Stacie are the proud parents of three boys. When he’s not watching his sons play play competitive hockey, you can find him volunteering as a ski host for Park City ski resort.
