Payson Mayor Expected To Announce If He Is Running Or Not On Friday


A few more potential candidates have waded into the Payson council and mayoral pool as of yesterday, Wednesday afternoon.

Mayor Bob Edwards has thus far completed his candidate packet information, indicating that he looks to seek re-election.

Edwards is holding a meeting at Fireside Espresso tomorrow, Friday, at noon to announce his decision and discuss the next steps for his possible campaign.

"We'll be announcing our decision as to what we are going to do," Edwards said. "It's a team decision."

Edwards said the meeting is open to anyone who wants to attend.

Bruce Van Camp has also collected a mayoral candidate packet but has not returned it to town hall. He is not yet officially in the running for mayor.

In addition to the two mayoral candidates, Mike Hughes, John Wilson, David Rutter and Tom Loeffler have obtained statements of candidacy and are now able to collect signatures from registered voters in Payson. Greg Friestad has also picked up a council candidate packet, which he has not yet returned. He is therefore not an official candidate at this time.
