SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall and Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson expressed joy and elation over Joe Biden's victory over President Trump in the 2020 election.

On Twitter, Mendenhall didn't hold back on the emotions she feels seeing Biden win.

"I’m elated with this news! As I watched President-elect Biden speak last night his words touched my heart, as I know it did the hearts of many, “We may be opponents — but we are not enemies. We are Americans.” I’m looking forward to President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris working to unify and heal our country."

Wilson echoed similar sentiments on Twitter, adding Biden's win will help the entire county, not just those in one party.

"With Joe Biden elected, we will see integrity in America again. I am relieved that progress for Salt Lake County will again have back up from our federal government."
