Corroon, Dougall join effort pushing term limits for statewide offices

SALT LAKE CITY — State Auditor John Dougall and former Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon have joined an effort pushing term limits for statewide elected offices.

Rick Larsen, the owner of a marketing and fundraising firm, launched Utah Term Limits Now earlier this month. It seeks a constitutional amendment limiting the governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, state treasurer and state auditor to two four-year terms.

Dougall, a Republican, and Corroon, a Democrat, are the first politicians to publicly support the campaign.

Dougall, who served 10 years in the Utah House, is in his first term as state auditor. Corroon served two terms as county mayor and now serves as the Utah Democratic Party chairman.
