Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon
Since becoming Salt Lake County Mayor in the 2004 election, Peter Corroon has worked to foster open, honest and ethical government.
At a time when Salt Lake County is seeing rapid growth, he emphasizes “planning, not politics” to manage this growth. His fiscally conservative policies will make county government both more efficient and more environmentally sound. Mayor Corroon believes that government should be accessible to all citizens. He regularly holds open-door meetings for the public and has made promoting diversity a priority. A champion of small business, his Up Grade initiative and economic development efforts are improving lives throughout the county. In addition to being mayor of Salt Lake County, Mayor Corroon also serves as a board member for the National Association of Counties, The United Way, Envision Utah, Utah Technology Council, Economic Development Corporation of Utah, and Salt Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, which recently awarded him “Public Official of the Year.”
He holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh; M.S. in Real Estate Finance and Investment, New York University; and a J. D. from Golden Gate University. Mayor Corroon and his wife, Amy, have three children. His twin brother Christopher also lives in Salt Lake.
