Wilde Still Holds Lead, Barely

The challenger to Utah Representative Mel Brown, (R) Coalville, is hanging on to his lead in the Republican primary race for Utah House District 53.   The district covers parts of Summit, Daggett, Rich, Duchesne and Morgan counties.   On election night, Wilde finished ahead by 64 votes.  But Kent Jones, Summit County Clerk, indicated there could be some ballots that were mailed in time, but hadn't arrived yet.  On Friday, Jones said his office counted an additional 305 ballots and Mel Brown had moved ahead by seven votes.    But less than an hour later, another county updated its  count, moving Wilde ahead again by seven votes.   According to the Utah election results website, Wilde leads the race with 2463 votes compared to Browns'  2456 votes.    All counties must turn in official vote counts by July 12th.   The winner in the Republican primary will face Democrat Cole Capener from Park City.

Renai Bodley Miller became General Manager of KPCW in June, 2017. Previously, she was a reporter at KPCW. Renai is a 25 year veteran of the television news business. She was a news producer in Roanoke, VA, Richmond, VA, Miami, FL, and Washington, DC before moving to Utah in 1996 to be the Executive Producer at KSTU Fox 13. In 1999, she was promoted to Vice President/News Director. Under Renai’s tenure, Fox 13 expanded its news coverage from 2.5 hours to 10 hours of news a day. She retired in July, 2015, to enjoy her new home in Park City; but she couldn’t stay out of a newsroom for long. Less than a month later she signed on with KPCW as a reporter, and less than two years later she was promoted to General Manager when Larry Warren retired.
