Ten candidates or one, Utah County cities gear up for mayoral election

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestmail

The next mayors of several cities, including Lindon, Genola and Woodland Hills, are pretty much a given after Wednesday night’s filing deadline — only one candidate applied for the position in each city. But in other cities, the non-partisan mayoral candidates are facing a tough race to a primary election on Aug. 15.

Provo, where Mayor John Curtis isn’t running for re-election, has the most candidates vying for the post — 10. Lehi, where the incumbent is running, and Eagle Mountain, where the current mayor is not running, tie for second, with six candidates who will be on the primary ballot for mayor. Highlands’s got five candidates, while the rest of the county’s 24 cities have two to four candidates running for mayor. In races where there are two or fewer candidates, the candidates will automatically be on the ballot in November.
