At least four cities and towns in Utah elect their first women mayors
Salt Lake City, Utah — West Valley City, Park City, Parowan, and North Logan appear to have elected their first women mayors.
According to a January 2021 report from the Utah Women and Leadership Project at Utah State University, only 17% of Utah mayors are women.
That’s still a 9% increase from 2017.
North Logan’s mayor-elect Lyndsay Peterson says it represents an embracing of the future.
Peterson hopes the perspectives she has are going to be reflective of a bigger swath of the broader community.
