Jackie Biskupski has entered the race for Salt Lake City Mayor.
Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker is seeking a third term as Salt Lake City mayor in 2015. But, it is looking like he might have a formidable challenge from contenders looking to bring their vision of leadership to Utah’s largest city.
Becker elected originally in 2007 has been criticized by some in Salt Lake City for not being liberal enough in his leadership of Salt Lake City.
Previously, Luke Garrott, a Salt Lake City Council Member, announced his bid to unseat Mayor Becker late last year.
Also, Utah State Senator Jim Dabakis (D-Salt Lake City) was rumored to jump into the mayoral race, however shortly after Luke Garrott announced his candidacy, Dabakis decides not to run, and serve out his term in the Utah Senate that he was elected to in November, 2014.
Comes now Jackie Biskupski, formerly a member of the Utah Legislature who resigned because of an address change in 2011.
While Biskupski has an Facebook campaign page, there is no official campaign website (yet), or other social media outlets. However, the Facebook page does announce a “Kick Off” event for her campaign on January 31st.
