Utah communities elect their first women mayors
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — At least four cities and towns in Utah appear to have elected their first women mayors: West Valley City, Park City, Parowan and North Logan.
KUER-FM reports just 17% of Utah mayors are women, according to a January 2021 report from the Utah Women and Leadership Project at Utah State University.
That’s still a 9% increase from 2017.
North Logan’s mayor-elect Lyndsay Peterson says it represents an embracing of the future.
She hopes the perspectives she has are going to be reflective of a bigger swath of the broader community.
