BRIGHAM CANDIDATES TO FOCUS ON CRIME, CITY’S FUTURE

SHARE BRIGHAM CANDIDATES TO FOCUS ON CRIME, CITY’S FUTURE

Residents of this northern Utah city are likely to hear a lot of discussion about juvenile crime, gang activity and drug abuse, as well as long-term planning in the weeks leading up to the November general election.

Nearly all of the six candidates for four-year City Council seats who survived Tuesday's primaries listed youth crime or the city's future as key concerns.The number of votes between advancing and falling out of the hard-fought race could be counted on fingers in the case of two of the nine candidates. The only incumbent running, Steven L. Hill, edged Jeff Cleaveland out by just six votes to capture the final slot.

According to complete but unofficial tallies, Heidi Parker led the field, followed closely by Lou Ann N. Christensen and Jim Davis. Other November contenders will be Joseph A. Beykirch and Jon Adams.

Defeated candidates were Cleaveland, James White and Neil S. Johnson.
