I'm Wes Boger.  I am running for City Council to help lead our economic recovery, improve workforce housing, education, and public safety in Mesquite. I have lived and worked in Mesquite for 15 years. I am a small business owner and entrepreneur. I also volunteer for the Mesquite Police Department and am a school volunteer. Other civic duties include being a member of the Virgin Valley Community Education Advisory Board (CEAB), and the Mesquite City Charter Committee.

With the recent pandemic causing many residents to lose their income and businesses to close, the local economy has become the #1 issue for Mesquite. Navigating through an adverse economy is nothing new to me.
As the General Manager of a tech startup company in the Silicon Valley, I led our company through the "Dot Com" market crash by working together while being fiscally conservative. Our company did not lay off any employees, nor did it go into debt. I started my own internet retail company in 2003.
My wife and I purchased a home and moved to Mesquite in 2005 to start a family. The small business was our only source of income. It thrived through the "Great Recession" and is still going strong today.

With my background in running successful businesses, I believe I am the best candidate to fill Mesquite City Council Seat 5 and help lead our community through these uncertain economic times.
