Elections

Lynn Wood 4 Mayor Facebook Page

You know an election is coming up when anonymous letters are sent to the media... A letter sent to KPCW and signed by A Very Concerned Coalville Resident claims that Coalville mayoral candidate Lynn Wood has declared dual residency in both Summit County and Salt Lake County.

Meanwhile, the Summit County Assessor’s office is recommending that one of the Wood’s two properties in Coalville needs to be changed to a non-primary residence for property tax purposes. Wood says both claims are inaccurate.

Eight people will be on the ballot for Heber City Council in November.

Two city council seats are up for election. Wayne Hardman filed for re-election first, and seven newcomers followed. Heidi Franco, whose term is ending, is running for mayor instead of re-election to the council.

KPCW spent some time getting to know the hopefuls in this crowded field.

Heber City voters will have choices in November. After the filing period ended Tuesday, there were three candidates for mayor and eight for city council in the general election. 

In addition to incumbent mayor Kelleen Potter and incumbent Councilman Wayne Hardman seeking re-election, Councilwoman Heidi Franco is running for mayor, one new face will be on the ballot for mayor, and seven candidates are running for two open seats on the city council.

The top two mayoral candidates and top four candidates for city council in Tuesday’s primary in Park City advanced to November’s election.

 

Tuesday night was the first hard indicator of where Park City voters stand in the races for mayor and city council.

 

Current Councilor Nann Worel amassed 1,373 votes in her bid for mayor, and says she did not expect the margin she received.

On the east side of Summit County, unofficial primary election results are in for Coalville and Oakley.

The vote tallies in Coalville included the only primary contest for mayor in eastern Summit County. And they also trimmed a crowded field of eight candidates running for two council seats.

In the race for Coalville Mayor, Mark R. Marsh received 174 votes, over 52 percent of the vote.  In the November election, he will face off with Lynn Wood, who got 147 votes. She's known in the community as a critic of the controversial Wohali project.

After Tuesday's primary election in Park City for mayor and city council, Nann Worel led in the contest for mayor, and political newcomers Tana Toly and Jeremy Rubell were the top vote-getters among city council candidates.

 

Unofficial vote totals were released by the Summit County Clerk’s office shortly before 8:30 Tuesday night. The top two candidates for mayor and the top four city council candidates will move on to the general election on November 2nd.

Heber Mayor Kelleen Potter has filed for re-election, and she will have at least one challenger in Councilwoman Heidi Franco.

The candidates are both focusing on residents’ quality of life as Heber’s population booms.

Franco is at the end of her second consecutive term on Heber City Council. She says her priority is to balance growth with protection of the environment.

Campaign financial disclosure forms released by Park City Municipal this week revealed how much money candidates for mayor and city council have raised so far, and who’s doing the donating.

 

Ahead of the August 10th primary, all three of Park City’s candidates for mayor have raised over $30,000 in campaign funds.

 

Park City Chamber/Bureau

The community group Future Park City hosted a city council candidate forum this week ahead of the August 10th primary.

 

There are eight candidates vying for two city council seats in Park City this year. That field will be reduced to four after a primary on August 10th. With so many names -- some well-known in the community, and others new -- Tuesday’s community candidate forum was a chance for the hopefuls to introduce themselves to the public in their own words.

 

Jeremy Rubell for City Council

Park City Councilor Steve Joyce has endorsed Thaynes Canyon resident Jeremy Rubell in the crowded race for city council.

 

Hideout Town Council

The town of Hideout has four council seats open during this election season — councilor Carol Haselton currently occupies one of them and is running for another two-year term.

 

Haselton moved in a little more than two years ago. She was a member of the town planning commission for a short time before being appointed to the town council in the spring of 2020.

 

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.
