SALT LAKE CITY — The window closed Friday for hopefuls running for municipal offices.
Primary elections where necessary will be held Aug. 13, narrowing the field before Election Day on Nov. 5.
In Salt Lake County, West Valley City’s mayoral and City Council races are likely to receive extra attention this year as the embattled city looks to recover from some high-profile problems. Seven candidates will compete to lead the Utah’s second-largest city, as Mayor Mike Winder opted not to seek a second term.
Winder announced in late May that he was bowing out based on financial need, saying he needed to take a full-time job to support his family. West Valley City's mayor is a part-time position, with a $35,000 annual salary.
A nationwide search is underway for a new chief to lead the West Valley City Police Department, which has been riddled by allegations, including the possibility of police corruption that led to the dismissal of 124 drug cases, the fatal officer-involved shooting of 21-year-old Danielle Willard and criticism over the way its officers investigated the Susan Powell case.
After four fruitless years, that Powell case was essentially closed last month, with no charges ever having been filed.
