Wade Woolstenhulme defeated Oakley's incumbent mayor Blake Frazier by a margin of 26 votes. The tally was Woolstenhulme 181, Frazier 155. Frazier serves as Summit County's Auditor. Woolstenhulme is the principal of South Summit Middle School.

In Oakley's City Council race, incumbents Alton Frazier and Kendall "Tiny" Woolstenhulme earned the most votes. Frazier received 241 and Woolstenhulme had 184. It was a close race though, as Charles Gillett just missed replacing incumbent Woolstenhulme by four votes.

Appointee Lorrie Hoggan was formally elected to continue on the council for two more years.

Frazier owns a small real estate brokerage in Eastern Summit County. Woolstenhulme owns Tycon Inc., an excavating contractor company. Hoggan serves on the Oakley City Council and is a paralegal for Talisker Mountain Inc.

The results are unofficial until the ballots are canvassed by the town council next week.
