My name is Sophia M. DiCaro and I am a Republican candidate for the Salt Lake County Council At Large seat.
From an early age I was taught to work hard and strive for excellence. My father was a coal miner and proud United States Marine Corps sergeant. My mother, who was originally from Japan, ran a small business in the basement of our home. They instilled in me the values of hard work and service to others. Because of that work ethic, I was awarded academic scholarships to help pay for my education at the University of Utah, where I earned a Bachelors in Political Science and later, a Masters in Public Administration.
I started my career in the Governor’s Office of Planning and Budget, which later led to an opportunity in the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. After thirteen years of service under four gubernatorial administrations in various senior roles, I served a term in the Utah State House of Representatives, where I represented northern West Valley City.
Since then, I have continued to be active in the community and serve on a number of boards and commissions. I love Utah and I love Salt Lake County and I hope to earn your support in becoming a new member of the Salt Lake County Council so that I may contribute my passion of service on your behalf.
