Coalville Mayor Trevor Johnson Will Not Seek Re-election to Third Term This Fall

Coalville Mayor Trevor Johnson has announced he won’t run for re-election this fall.

 

Mayor Johnson told KPCW on Monday that after serving two terms, he’s excited to move onto his next chapter.

 

He said it was an easy decision to make, but he’s mindful of the people he’s leaving behind at City Hall.

 

“We have a really good city staff,” he said. “I’ve got to be really good friends with them. And I care about them a lot. So the hard part is hoping that whoever does come in next is mindful of them and respects them and can continue that good relationship.”

 

The Mayor also reflected on how the economy of Coalville has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic the last year and a half.

 

He said some businesses in town struggled, but he didn’t know of any that closed. The mayor said the lockdown period, in fact, helped them, because residents shopped locally rather than driving to Park City or Snyderville.

 

Johnson is excited at the prospect of the Summit County Fair coming back this summer. It’s not only the return of a beloved tradition but there’s an important economic impact.

 

“Every dollar spent in a community like ours usually changes hands about seven times before it leaves,” he said. “And it affects that many people before it leaves. So any reason for someone to come in and buy a hamburger or a gallon of gas or whatever is a positive thing for Coalville.”

 

The filing window for municipal elections in Summit County is open June 1-7.
