Turner Bitton

Salt Lake City School Board, District 2

Turner will be the first out LGBTQ+ person on the Salt Lake City School Board!


Turner Bitton is the current Chairman of the Glendale Neighborhood Council. For four years, he has led
efforts to create safer streets, keep public spaces clean and litter-free, and bring more of our neighbors
into civic affairs. Turner is running for Salt Lake City School Board because the Salt Lake City School
District is at a crossroads. As Salt Lake City grows and changes, the school district needs leaders willing
to fight for the future of our schools. An optimistic and goal-oriented leader, Turner believes that the future
of Salt Lake City and the school district is bright.
Turner is a dedicated community leader who drives to ensure every child gets a quality public education
and is a product of public schools. Turner will fight to ensure that the Westside’s voice is heard and
provide leadership that is accessible, present, and willing to listen.
