Christopher Hadden, Eagle City Council
As your next elected Eagle City Council Member, the City of Eagle needs to make some significant changes to manage growth while focusing on low-density rural development and limiting construction in the Eagle foothills. I invite you the Eagle Citizen to read my platform which I believe captures the current issues we are facing and how I will work for you to resolve them.
I’m a New Jersey native and at an early age moved to Arizona which is where I met my wife, started a family and lived for 25 years. My wife and I fell in love with Idaho back in 2004 when we visited a family friend and new immediately if we had the opportunity we would love to move and raise our family in Idaho. We visited Idaho several times before uprooting our family, two children and a dog back in 2016. Since moving to Idaho, I have been active in the Eagle community by volunteering at my children’s school, held Boy Scout leadership roles, Reagan Republican Member and been involved in the City of Eagle politics.
My professional background includes extensive management experience in corporate finance having worked for JPMorgan Chase, Metris Bank, Express Scripts Pharmaceutical, Mutual of Omaha Bank and most notably Honeywell. At Honeywell, a defense aerospace company, I have had the privilege of traveling the world in my business travels as a Global Operations Manager for Honeywell Corporate Finance responsible for yearly disbursements of over $3 billion with direct oversight of a staff of 130. I feel my experience makes me uniquely qualified having negotiated multimillion dollar contracts and having worked with state, federal and defense agencies.
I currently run my own successful small business which allows me to understand the needs of Eagle, both small and large. I presently run and own a remodeling contract business here in Eagle serving the Treasure Valley. As a lifelong conservative, I look forward to the honor of serving the citizens of Eagle as Eagle City Council member.
