Gary Ott is running for re-election as Salt Lake County Recorder
It is my pleasure
to announce on Friday, March 14th I filed once again to serve as your
Salt Lake County Recorder.
As your Salt Lake
County Recorder, I have significantly modernized and improved the Salt Lake
County Recorder's office.

reduced our annual budget $2.4 million.
Through the use of technology and attrition I have
reduced the staff size by 44%.
I pioneered the use of digital technology and was the
first in our state and second in the nation to implement electronic filing of
documents. Currently, 60% of all recordings done in the office are done
I have also taken a very expensive website and made it
This represents a
considerable savings to you, the tax payers of Salt Lake County. These
innovations improve the efficiency and accuracy of our office, thus helping
protect land owners from fraud.
I am appreciative and
humbled by the strong support you have all shown me. I am
also proud and humbled to be a recipient of The Lincoln Service Award in 2014
for recognition of outstanding service and leadership on behalf of the citizens
of Salt Lake County and the County Republican Party. I have thoroughly enjoyed
serving as your County Recorder. I will continue to look for inefficiencies and
manage the office in the same fiscally conservative manner I have done in the
past and make improvements to the office, as we move forward.
I feel I have done a lot to improve
our office and feel there is much more I can do. I would appreciate your
continued support and vote in the upcoming election. It has been my pleasure to serve
you and I hope to continue doing so.
