The Democrat has outraised and outspent his opponent throughout the race. Highlights of his platform include education, cutting the county's operational costs and facilitating cooperation between county entities.
Crockett is a one-term member of the Salt Lake County Council from 2005 to 2008. He is currently the managing director of his Utah-based consulting company, Vici Capital Partners.
The focus of Crockett's campaign has been reducing county spending while improving vital human services. He agreed the race will be close, coming down to Election Day turnout.
The Republican said his business acumen and experience have made him an attractive candidate to voters.
"People do resonate with business experience and the county being, not a business, but a large and complicated organization," Crockett said. "I think we understand by watching Washington the last several years that this is time for us to change our approach to government."
