Rosie Rivera Secures Position As Salt Lake County Sheriff
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Sheriff Rosie Rivera will stay on the job after beating out Republican challenger Justin Hoyal.
Rivera secured 60 percent of the vote.
“I want to thank everybody, all of you in this room, for your support,” Rivera told an audience Tuesday night. “Also, I want to thank my family, of course. For 25 years they watched me go through law enforcement, through all the ups and downs. This is the highlight of my career.”
Hoyal, who works for the Unified Police Department, posted on his political Facebook page that while the results aren’t what he expected, he wished to express gratitude to his supporters.
“First and foremost to my wife and children, who have weathered the ups and downs… ” he wrote. “I also wish to thank my hundreds of volunteers and supporters. We could never have gotten to the finish line without your hard work and dedication.”
