Mayor Steve Hiatt | Forty Under 40 Recipient 2015
Mayor Steve Hiatt
“Mayor Steve Hiatt, mayor of Kaysville, is an exceptional nomination for SE’s Forty Under Emerging Leaders award. He is currently serving his second term as mayor of this thriving community. His service has been exemplified by honesty, integrity, and fairness. He has been very diligent in listening to the concerns of his constituents; then making the best decision on each issue with input from the city council. He is a great ambassador to the city; attending well their events, getting to know Kaysville’s citizens, and developing a great spirit of comradery in the city. In a city with almost as many varied opinions on the issues as there are residents, he has been remarkably able to make decisions that are the best for the city and then able to explain well his rationale for said decisions. He strives for excellence in all aspects of his life, whether political, vocation, church or family.
Steve recently helped me with a mortgage loan at his Wasatch Mortgage. My experiences with this industry has been difficult in the past. I found Steve’s approach refreshing and shockingly, even enjoyable. His honesty in going great lengths to find for me the best mortgage for my situation was extraordinary. When I saw your advertisement for the Forty Under nominations, I thought of Steve. He personifies the young, driven, forthright individual who would represent this award well!” – Johnnie V. Cook, MD
