The Hinckley Institute Radio Hour: Deedee Corradini In Memoriam


deedee_corradiniThe Hinckley Institute Radio Hour (Air date: March 4, 2015) –  Deedee Corradini, Salt Lake City’s first and only female mayor, died on Sunday at the age of 70.  She had been battling lung cancer since last July.  Last year at the Hinckley Institute of Politics, on February 18th, 2014, she spoke at length about her dynamic career.

Deedee Corradini served as Salt Lake City’s 32nd mayor for 2 terms – from 1992 to 2000 – during which she helped secure the 2002 Winter Olympic Games for Salt Lake City, helped to establish the city’s first TRAX light rail lines, forged I-15 renovations, helped launch the Gateway Mall project, and revitalized the downtown area.  She was also remembered for approving the controversial sale of the Main Street Plaza area to the Mormon Church, and wading through Salt Lake’s Olympic bribery scandal.  After leaving public life Corradini later embraced Olympic politics, becoming a staunch advocate for women’s ski jumping.  She also became a strong advocate for helping women get elected to public office.
