Join Ben's campaign:
Candidate for Utah’s 4th Congressional District
Ben McAdams is the twice-elected mayor of Salt Lake County. McAdams is a seventh generation Utahn who was raised in a family of eight where he learned the values of hard work, honesty, and duty to the community. As mayor, he has brought Republicans and Democrats together to get things done such as address homelessness, form partnerships with the private sector to create jobs and improve education — all while managing a balanced budget. Mayor McAdams will take these Utah values to Washington and work with parties on both sides of the aisle to find solutions to our nation’s challenges and support opportunities for all Utahns.
Ben graduated from the University of Utah and Columbia Law School. He has practiced law in New York and Utah. Ben was elected to the Utah State Senate in 2008, representing Salt Lake City, South Salt Lake and West Valley City. He and his wife (fellow Columbia Law grad), Julie, and their four children live in Salt Lake City, where they enjoy hiking, soccer and baseball and the many cultural activities offered throughout the state.
