Meet Bluffdale's Mayor Derk Timothy

Personal Life

I have a beautiful wife, Tami, who I met at Bingham High School. She waited for me while I served a mission in England for The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints. We have been married for almost 28 years. We have 4 children: Denver; Mercedes who is married to Jesus Rodriguez; Danielle who is married to Kevin Carbajal; and Parker who is married to Erika Osuna. We have 2 granddaughters Desirae and Alyssa and 7 grandsons.

Living in Bluffdale

We built our original home in West Jordan, lived in Salt Lake City, Holladay, then again in West Jordan and finally Bluffdale. Tami and I built our home here 28 years ago because we wanted a more rural area unlike where we had previously lived in the past. I feel Bluffdale City is a perfect place to raise a family.


I have a B.S. degree in Business with an emphasis in Management (4.0 GPA). I have worked for Orbital ATK since 1983.

Mayoral Duties

I have been the Mayor of Bluffdale since 2010. As Mayor I serve on the Military Installation Authority Board, have served as President of the Salt Lake County Council of Governments, and President of the Salt Lake Valley Conference of Mayors. I’m a Member of the board for the Wasatch Regional Council and serve on the Public Utilities committee, the Regional Growth Committee, and the Transportation Committee. I also serve as a Board Member of the South Valley Sewer District.
