To all appearances, last weekend's Republican and Democratic state conventions could be the last round for Utah's caucus and convention system as we know it. A bill in the recent legislature altered the process for candidates to get on a primary ballot.
But Summit County's Democratic and GOP party chairs think the caucus system might still be basically unchanged. Rick Brough has more.
The election is more than a year away, but there will be a contest in 2014 for Summit County Attorney. Former Third District Court Judge says he plans to run for the job, as a Democrat. And incumbent County Attorney, David Brickey, a Republican, says he will be asking voters for a third term.
Besides Park City, the only other primary election contest in the county yesterday took place in Coalville, where six candidates vied to run for Mayor.
The candidate with the most voites in that contest led the pack by nearly 100 votes. But the second-place finisher, and three other candidates, were separated from each other by razor-thin margins. Rick Brough has more.
Preliminary election results are in for the Park City Council Race.
After the polls closed on Tuesday evening and votes were tallied, the four city council candidates who will proceed to the November general municipal election were determined as announced by senior recorder and election official Sharon Bauman.. Those are incumbents Alex Butwinski and Cindy Matsumoto, as well as political newcomers, Tim Henney and Mary Wintzer.
After four years, Park City Council member Alex Butwinski has a sense of accomplishment and he likes the people he works with at the Marsac Building. Given that, he wants to be elected to a second term on the Council. KPCW’s Rick Brough has more.
