New SLC Council Leadership Chosen for 2016

City Council Members have elected a new leadership team for 2016.

At the Council’s January 5 meeting, the seven-member group chose James Rogers, who represents District 1, as the new Chair. Stan Penfold, who represents District 3, was chosen as the Vice Chair.

“I’m looking forward to serving Salt Lake City as Chair of the City Council in the year ahead,” said Rogers, who was first elected to the Council in 2013. “I’m honored to work with my colleagues as well as residents, businesses, community partners, and Mayor Biskupski’s administration as we zero in on bettering the future of our great city.”

Penfold was elected to the Council in 2009. 

The new leadership team will serve a standard, one-year term beginning immediately. They take over from outgoing Chair Luke Garrott and Rogers, who was Vice Chair.
