There's Still Time for Write-in Candidates to Shake Up Hideout's Elections

Hideout Town

Two candidates for mayor in Hideout are set to face off in the general election on Nov. 2 and all four Town Council candidates are running unopposed – but it’s not too late for write-in candidates to step up.


The incumbent mayor of Hideout Town, Phil Rubin, has filed to run for another term. According to Hideout Town Clerk Alicia Fairbourne, he filed late in the day on June 7, less than an hour before the closing deadline.


Rubin declined KPCW's request to comment on his candidacy, explaining he would be out of town until mid-July. He also said it is inappropriate to comment on his mayoral reelection until the June 22 annexation referendum results are final. 


Rubin’s challenger, Dean Heavrin, also filed to run for mayor late in the day on June 7 and has not responded to KPCW's efforts to reach him.


Ballots have been mailed to residents to vote whether the town will annex a 350-acre acre parcel of land in Summit County east of Park City. 


Hideout has four candidates who have filed for the four open town council seats. Unless write-in candidates emerge before Aug. 27, all four seats are uncontested. The last day for a write-in candidateto file for office is 65 days before the general election on Aug. 30.


For questions or election information, call Hideout Town Clerk Alicia Fairbourne at 435-640-2188, or email her at afairbourne@hideoututah.gov.
