Shireen Ghorbani

I’m running for Salt County Mayor to set a bold, clear and unequivocal vision for the future of our region. I believe every resident should have the opportunity to contribute and benefit from economic prosperity in our county. I’m running for a future where working families are put ahead of corporate interest, where mental healthcare and addiction treatment services are put ahead of incarceration, and where we are working in collaborative ways to improve our air quality, expand education and protect our open spaces.

I will be a leader for the inclusive growth of our region, thoughtful stewardship of our environment, and continued efforts to provide a social safety net that works.

I am currently an associate director in the facilities department at the University of Utah; the “city-managers” of campus. I’m directly involved in making decisions about many of the same kinds of services the county provides its residents.

This election is a statement about what kind of Democrat you want leading our region now and in 2020. Our last two county mayors – neither of who had held county office before, made groundbreaking progress and I want to continue that momentum.

I’m ready to go to work.
