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.
