East Side candidates trickle in on last day of filing

Oakley, Kamas and Coalville will see primary races

On the final day of filing to run in November’s municipal elections, several new candidates trickled in on the East Side, triggering primary runoffs in Coalville, Kamas and Oakley.

The mayor’s post and two council seats are up for election in each town. The filing window to be included on the official ballots closed Wednesday at 5 p.m.

The following citizens have filed:

For mayor: Trever Johnson, Tyler Rowser, Merlyn Johnson
For council: Rodney Robbins, Cody Blonquist, Suzanne Boyer, Timothy Bristow

For mayor: Kevan Todd, Matt McCormick
For council: Kim Steed, Amy Yost, Garry Walker Kaycee Simpson, Matthew Atkinson, Allen McNeil

For mayor: Kay Richins
For council: Detton Fawcett, Richard Butler, Matt Shill

For mayor: Wade Woolstenhulme, Ron Bowen
For council: Dave Edmunds, Steve Wilmoth, Steve Butler, Chris Hanson, Richard Bliss, Kendall “Tiny” Woolstenhulme, Stephanie Woolstenhulme

For mayor: Lee Snelgrove, Byron Ames
For council: Trilby Cox, Shana Fryer, Casey Vorwaller, Scott Ian Buchanan. (An earlier candidate, Shauna Bushman, withdrew her application.)

Due to the number of candidates who filed, there will be a mayoral primary in Coalville to reduce the field to two. There will also be a runoff in the Oakley Town Council race to reduce the number of candidates from seven to four, and in the Kamas Council race to reduce the field from six to four.

Ballots for the primary races will be mailed July 25 and will be tallied on Aug. 15.
