Dustin Gettel

City Council, District 5

Dustin will continue to bring important representation to Midvale City Council!

Biography

Dustin Gettel moved from Pennsylvania to Utah with his partner in 2015 and quickly fell in love with his rapidly changing Midvale community. When he was disappointed with the lack of crosswalks in a city that liked to pride itself in its emerging walkability, Dustin decided to challenge the incumbent city councilmember and won by more than 20 percentage points. Since then, Dustin has championed progressive causes like paid parental leave for city employees, banning puppy mills throughout the city, increased walkability and bikeability, and formal recognition of LGBTQ Pride month and Transgender Day of Remembrance. As one of only 6 out LGBTQ elected officials in the state of Utah, Dustin is proud to be the only gay man elected to office outside of Salt Lake City.
