The Independence Caucus has endorsed three candidates running in Logan’s municipal elections and last night Independence Caucus spokeswoman Michelle King defended the choices on KVNU’s For the People program.King said mayoral candidate Mike Morrill and council hopefuls Steve Stokes and Tony Wegener went through a survey and interviewing process and were found to share the principles of her organization.The I-Caucus is against all special interest groups and the endorsed candidates are against a landlord licensing bill. King was asked if landlords are considered a special interest group”I couldn’t help it that the people who happened to be running, who matched our principals, were landlords,” King responded. “They’re not a special interest group.”King also defended the process her caucus went through to learn about the candidates and why they ultimately supported Morrill, Stokes and Wegener. “I know these guys personally,” King said. “I can tell you they are the most sincere people. “They are not doing any of this for personal gain. If a special interest group is involved, they’re doing it for personal gain. But these guys, they want to make a difference. They want to stand up for what’s right. They want to stand up for the Constitution.”Two candidates who failed to make it through the primary have endorsed Morrill, Stokes and Wegener. They are former candidate for mayor Marc Haws and former council candidate Chad Tilley.
