PEOPLE
I come from a place where the voice of the people is silenced. There is so much good in Orem, but we need to do better Reaching Out to Citizens to address concerns and find solutions WITH citizens, not around them.

COMMUNITY
Safe and Strong Families and Communities, Recreational Opportunities and Variety, Open Space, Beautiful Surroundings – Restoring and Preserving Family City USA will take hard work, ingenuity and dedication – all qualities ingrained into my character and Orem’s soul – So Let’s DO IT! 

SERVICE
Serving the Country and City that have given me the opportunity to make a good life here is very important to me. I have served in many capacities, and currently serve as a volunteer with the Orem Police Department and on the Planning Commission. I believe that City officials and employees should Engage, Participate, and Build Bonds to strengthen our city, and I will Drive and Work that Vision starting Day 1.  

Strong Voice. Strong Community. 

About Haysam

Haysam believes in the American Dream because he’s lived it. He arrived in the U.S. from Egypt in 1997 with $37.50 in his pocket. His first job was cleaning a filthy warehouse where the owner let him stay in a tiny side room. There were a lot of hard jobs and long hours, but there was always hope; hope for a better life. Five years later, while going to school, Haysam worked at as waiter in Time Square’s famous Roxy’s restaurant. It was there that he met his wife Lexie, who was visiting the city as a BYU student. They hit is off immediately, kept in touch for two years, and in July of 2001 Haysam had an opportunity to come to Utah with the company he was working for. In December of 2001 they were married, and twenty years later, they have five children; all boys. Haysam became a successful businessman and has built and sold multiple businesses in Orem. “That day with $37.50 in my pocket seems like a long time ago and just yesterday at the same time. I have worked so hard, learned so much, and met so many incredible people. I wouldn’t change this journey for anything.”
