Mr. Peterson Will Not Seek Re-Election in 2018

It is with both reverence and reluctance that I announce my intent to retire from the Utah House of Representatives.  I will not be seeking re-election in 2018.  I am immensely grateful for all the support that has been given to me and my family during the past eight years as I have served at Capitol Hill in behalf of the people of District 9.  I am forever indebted to those
who have helped me in being elected to and serving in higher office.

Having consulted with my dear wife and family, we feel that now is the right time to take a pause from public service as we focus on shepherding our four daughters through adolescence and give much needed attention to our growing business ventures.

District 9 needs a strong voice at Capitol Hill and I encourage anyone with the aptitude to serve to file to run.

May God continue to bless our community and the great state of Utah!


  1. Thank you for your years of faithful and dedicated service! Best of success to you and your family in the next phase of life.

  2. I am sad to hear you are stepping down and concerned about who may replace you.

  6. Does this mean you will stop referring to yourself in third person?

  7. Anonymous, Mr. Peterson might stop referring to himself in the third person. I will ask him.
