Ann Granato

My name is Ann Granato and I am running for the Salt Lake County Council District 4 Seat that was held by my late husband Sam Granato.

Sam asked me to step up and complete his term representing “the great district 4.”

I have lived in district 4 for most of my life. I earned a degree from the College of Pharmacy at the University of Utah.

Over our 43-year partnership, Sam and I built our business, our family, and our community. It would be an honor to represent District 4 on the Salt Lake County Council.
