(KSL News) -- The three men running for Salt Lake County Mayor met in our studios this evening for ‘A Conversation with the Candidates.’

Democrat Peter Corroon, Ellis Ivory, currently a write-in candidate with Republican endorsement, and Merrill Cook, running unaffiliated, each made their pitch for votes.

Peter Corroon, (D) Candidate for Mayor of Salt Lake County: "We don't need that many high paid political appointees. We don't need the perks. We don't need the fancy cars. We don't need the fancy desks. I'm a workhorse. I'm not a showhorse. We'll get in there and set the example of how you run county government."

Ellis Ivory, (R) Candidate for Mayor of Salt Lake County: "I know how to run a business. I've done that very successfully. I think the people that know me, know that. They're talking all over. I think I know how to run the county. I think I can run the county better than it's been run, better than it will ever be run. I am confident I can do the job."

Merrill Cook, Candidate for Mayor of Salt Lake County: "I'll take the salary. You know it's eleven cents per person, per year to pay that salary. And I'll work night and day to make sure that the taxpayers get a much better return than that for their value."
