The 2014 election is 19 months away, but a local candidate has emerged for the District 3 office of Moffat County commissioner.
Lee was unanimously voted as the recipient of the Jake Clarke Award for Carbon County male athlete of the year by the Carbon County Quarterback’s Club. The senior is a seven-time state champion.
Voter turnout for Tuesday’s city election was down slightly from the most recent municipal election election but still significantly higher than 2009, the last election year before Craig moved to mail-only ballots.
Terry Carwile will retain his seat as mayor of Craig after defeating councilman Ray Beck in Tuesday’s municipal election. Other incumbents didn’t fare as well.
This year’s municipal election features two candidates vying to be mayor and six candidates competing for either three or four council seats, depending on the outcome in the mayor’s race.
Moffat County Clerk and Recorder’s Office officials said that as of Thursday afternoon they had received only 750 completed mail ballots from Craig voters. While that number was expected to increase as additional ballots were collected Friday, officials acknowledged they would like to see better turnout.
