Mayor Cherie Wood

Welcome to South Salt Lake!

Cherie Wood is a lifelong resident of the City of South Salt Lake, and began her career with the City 17 years ago at the front counter processing utility payments. Always accepting new challenges, she strengthened her skills through various positions with the City and in 2006 was appointed as Assistant Mayor to Mayor Robert Gray. Cherie graduated from the University of Phoenix with dual Bachelor’s Degrees in Business Management and Business Administration. After a well-orchestrated, grass roots campaign that declared progress and change, Cherie Wood became South Salt Lake’s first female Mayor on January 4, 2010. Mayor Wood has assembled an impressive team of department directors and as promised, has set in motion strong initiatives that will forever change the face of South Salt Lake. Under her Promise South Salt Lake initiative the City has been chosen as one of 100 Best Communities for Young People in 2012 by America's Promise Alliance.

UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX: MEET MAYOR CHERIE WOOD

"In 2008, Bob Gray, the then-mayor of South Salt Lake City, Utah, sat down with his assistant mayor, Cherie Wood, and had a little chat. She expected him to talk about re-election, but instead, he threw a curve ball and told her she needed to run for the mayoral office because of her fantastic ideas and good operational skills. “I thought he was crazy,” she says today.
