Michelle Kaufusi

Michelle Kaufusi is a Provo girl through and through: born and raised here, graduated from BYU, always actively involved in community service—and eventually making history as Provo’s first female mayor. Named as Utah’s 2019 Informed Decision Maker of the Year, Mayor Kaufusi has continued her regional leadership with newly-appointed positions as the 2nd vice president of the Utah League of Cities and Towns, chair of Utah Municipal Power Association and chair of the Utah Lake Commission. Mayor Kaufusi’s leadership has also translated to national accolades for Provo City. Most notably being honored as the nation’s best performing city by the distinguished Milken Institute, who invited her to speak at their 25th annual Global Conference. As the fourth largest city in Utah, Provo is clearing “hitting above its weight” with distinctions such as the #1 Safest Big City, #3 Best Run City and #3 Best College City.
