To Sherrie Hall Everett, community engagement and serving the city she loves comes naturally. With nearly two decades of public and non-profit service at all levels in our community she recently announced that she wants to serve as Provo’s next –and first ever woman–Mayor. Sherrie served as Vice-Chairman of the Council and as Chairman of Provo's Redevelopment Agency.
She is currently one of two appointees from Utah County serving on the Utah Transit Authority Board of Trustees and is serving as the Co-Vice Chair of the Board, elected by her fellow board members 7 months after joining the Board. She has served since March of 2016. Sherrie is part of forming improved board governance practices, particularly enhancing transparency and communication.
Sherrie and her fellow Board members have completed a 3-years of Reforms at the agency and are working on the strategic plan for the next 15-20 years to meet Utah's explosive growth.
“Transparency and communication are hugely important in governance. I can point to multiple times over the last 12 years that I’ve pushed for and improved government transparency. Are we done yet? I don’t think so. I still think I have some great ideas to help Provo city take the next steps to help citizens have greater information and context so that they can participate in shaping our community even more,” says Sherrie.
The founder of Creative Stream Inc., Sherrie has successfully merged two of her greatest interests: marketing and politics. She served on the Provo Municipal Council from 2008 to 2012, helping to shape the future of one of the nation’s most livable cities. Sherrie grew her firm from “A Mom with a Mac” in 1988 to designing and executing highly effective marketing strategies. Her work for Holmes Homes helped increase sales by $21 million, and she directs strategy and execution for high-profile political campaigns, including Mia Love’s historic and victorious 2014 election to the U.S House of Representatives. Sherrie continues to design and execute highly effective marketing strategies for business, healthcare, media, technology, non-profit and issues oriented marketing.

I especially am a fan of Mayor Curtis’ empowering and inviting style,” said Hall Everett. “I intend to lead Provo with that same kind of focus and contribute my experience to help create good outcomes for the city. We need to lean into our challenges as a city and find solutions that allow us to grow gracefully, while maintaining economic momentum and our wonderful quality of life.”
