Salt Lake County faces a vacuum of leadership. Financial decisions are being made without transparency or accountability. Erin stands ready to address these challenges head-on, to invest in all communities equitably, and to restore trust for those feeling neglected and affected by the pandemic's policies and past leadership failures. Her campaign is about more than a quick fix; it's about enduring commitment to bring collaboration, innovation, and the best ideas to fruition for the betterment of our county.

The Economy

The county's financial stewardship is faltering, with a $2 billion budget stretched to its limits year after year. This mismanagement risks jobs and compromises to the maintenance of our infrastructure. The focus must be on ways to improve the economy – not on ways to grow the county government.


Safety personnel require more than just appreciation – they need proper training and resources. To prevent the rise of crime levels akin to those in San Francisco, Erin is committed to ensuring that police, sheriffs, and county officials have what they need to protect the community effectively.


Salt Lake County's rapid growth is a testament to desirability but also poses challenges for housing availability. As Mayor, Erin pledges to actively engage in finding solutions that foster sustainable growth while preserving the essence of what makes Utah special.


The homelessness crisis demands urgent and effective action. The situation cannot deteriorate to what is seen in cities like San Francisco or Los Angeles. Erin’s approach includes strengthening organizations dedicated to this cause and initiating programs that address the root causes of homelessness, including joblessness.


Water is the lifeblood of our state. In office, Erin will champion our water resources, collaborating with various jurisdictions to ensure a sufficient water supply and to combat wasteful practices.
