Luz Escamilla has nearly twenty years of leadership experience in the private and nonprofit sectors as well as the executive and legislative branches of state government.

In 2008, Luz was elected to her first of three terms to the Utah State Senate, which represents the westside of Salt Lake City and part of West Valley City. Luz has worked tirelessly to pass meaningful legislation around issues of clean air, healthcare, public education, after school programs, licensing and many other issues that improve the lives of working families and residents of Salt Lake City.

Luz has been an effective Democrat in the GOP-controlled legislature because of her ability to find effective solutions, find common ground, and build bridges among those with different interests. Luz will bring her unique breadth and depth of experience and skills to the Salt Lake City Mayor’s Office.
