Kara Egbert was elected to Town Council in 2009. Egbert has lived in Sahuarita since 2005; she grew up in Liberty, Missouri.
She witnessed Liberty nearly double its population; but it still maintained its small town values. She desires the Town of Sahuarita to accomplish the same thing and she works toward that goal.
Egbert earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation Management from Brigham Young University. She worked for several cities in Utah managing recreation programs, fitness centers and parks. She was involved with special events such as First Night and the Freedom Festival in Provo, Utah. Egbert ran soccer programs that included over 250 youth teams. She also helped run one of the largest fitness centers in the state of Utah. When Egbert moved to Arizona she volunteered to be on the Sahuarita Parks and Recreation Commission and served as the Chairperson for two years. She currently volunteers in her children's classrooms at school and is the Committee Chair for one of the local Cub Scout packs.
Egbert is married and has five children ranging from nine years old to under a year. She has enjoyed serving on the Town Council and is excited for the next several years. She looks forward to improving communication from the town to the residents as well as bringing the town together with special events and service opportunities. She will continue working hard to keep our small town values in our growing community.
