In a closely contested mayoral race, Park City chose city councilman Andy Beerman over former mayor Dana Williams.  Beerman got 1,318 votes to Williams' 1,100.    Tim Henney and Steve Joyce won seats on Park City's city council.

Tuesday night Wasatch County voters elected two female mayors, and helped replace Congressman Jason Chaffetz with another Republican.  Kelleen Potter was elected Heber City mayor, defeating incumbent Alan McDonald.  And Celeste Johnson was elected mayor of Midway, defeating incumbent Colleen Bonner.   

In Heber City's city council race, Heidi Franco won re-election.  Wayne Hardman also won.

Park City voters elected a new mayor Tuesday night.  City Councilman Andy Beerman defeated Dana Williams by more than 200 votes, with 1,318 votes to Williams' 1,100.   Beerman was in his second term on council.  He had run for Mayor in 2014, but lost to Jack Thomas.  Williams was Park City's mayor from 2002 - 2014.  

In an interview with KPCW Tuesday night, Beerman said he thought his victory meant that voters think the city is on the right track.  He also said he will continue to work towards what he calls a "complete community" that contains more affordable housing.

Two of the three candidates for Park City mayor have raised more than 20-thousand dollars so far. The third – though isn’t far behind.
