MEET VICTOR IVERSON
Victor Iverson and his wife, Audrey Johnson, met on a blind date and have been married for 26 years. They are the proud parents of five children, one son-in-law and one beautiful granddaughter.
Iverson is chair of the Washington County Board of Commissioners and is currently serving his second term as a Washington County commissioner. He is immediate past president of the Utah Association of Counties. Prior to his election to the county commission in 2014, he worked for U.S. Senator Mike Lee as Natural Resources and Public Land Policy Advisor.
Community involvement and service have been a hallmark of Iverson’s life. He has served as GOP county and state delegate, precinct chair, area representative, legislative chair and member of the County Executive and State Central committees. He has volunteered on numerous political campaigns, and he and his wife are active members and leaders in their local church congregation.
He is a descendent of ranchers, farmers and coal miners, as well as a grandfather and father who chose to honorably serve their country during WWI and WWII, respectively. Love of country, God, the U.S. Constitution and the western way of life were all a part of his upbringing.
Iverson was born in St. George, Utah, the youngest of seven children and grew up on a small farm in La Verkin with horses, mules, and farm animals of every kind. He spent his days hauling hay, watering fields, weeding, feeding, and cleaning ditches. When he was in 8th grade, his father and older brother bought an 800 acre ranch in Millard County, where he spent many summers.
While attending Hurricane High School, Iverson worked at the local turkey farm and broke rocks for science kits for a local entrepreneur. He was active in sports, debate and social activities. He was an avid anti-communist and a big Oliver North fan, and by the time he was 17 he had read both the Communist Manifesto and the Federalist Papers. After high school he served an LDS mission in Puebla, Mexico, where he fell in love with the Mexican people.
Iverson continued his education at Dixie College, where he earned an associate degree, and attended Southern Utah University, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
