What?! Salt Lake City Elects Openly ‘gay’ Mayor
Salt Lake City voters elected Jackie Biskupski as Utah’s first openly gay mayor and only the second female top executive in the capital city, according to the unofficial election-night count.
Those vote tallies had Biskupski with 52.19 percent to two-term Mayor Ralph Becker’s 47.81 percent — less than a 5 percentage-point spread. No additional results will be released until the Nov. 17 canvass.
Becker did not concede Tuesday night but did compliment Biskupski on a hard-fought campaign.
