GOP groundbreaker

Aimee Winder Newton on Tuesday became the only woman on the nine-member Salt Lake County Council — and the council’s first Republican woman.

Newton, 39, will represent District 3, in the center of the valley, serving the last 11 months of the term of David Wilde, who resigned to take a job in the county district attorney’s office. She was selected last week by members of the Salt Lake County Republican Party.

“As I’ve interacted with council members and staff over the last few weeks, I’ve been impressed with their dedication and their willingness to serve the people of Salt Lake County,” Newton said after taking the oath of office and introducing the council to her family. She is a mother of four.

Her brother, Mike Winder, who just finished his duties as West Valley City mayor, gave council members a little friendly warning.

“Look out, you’ve got Aimee coming,” he said.
