Candidate Filing Deadline Nears


If Payson and Star Valley council candidates don't have their petitions fully signed by now, they better make haste.

Mayoral and council candidates have until tomorrow, Wednesday at 5 p.m. to submit their signed petitions and other candidate information if they want to be included on the May ballots.

Unless candidates fail to have the appropriate number of signatures from registered voters -- at least 266 for Payson and at least 62 for Star Valley -- they will most likely be considered an official candidate, Payson Town Clerk Silvia Smith said.

Payson mayoral candidates include incumbent Bob Edwards and his challenger Kenny Evans.

Star Valley mayoral candidates include current Mayor Chuck Heron and current Vice-Mayor Randy White.

At this time, Payson council candidates include Vivian Burdette, Rick Croy, Greg Friestad, Michael Hughes, Tom Loeffler, David Rutter, Bruce Van Camp and incumbent John Wilson.

The group is vying for three open council seats.

In the current Star Valley council race George Binney, Gary Coon, Barbara Hartwell, Nathalie Stroup, Jay Vagalatos and Gregory Wong are seeking election.
