UPDATE: City Council interest high in some cities, not so much in others

Political interest in some communities in Northern Utah is running high while in others it seems to be non-existent, at least as it is manifest in the number of those deciding to run for political office. Thirteen people have declared their candidacy in Logan, 11 in North Logan and nine in Brigham City, forcing primary elections in those cities on September 13. But in Mendon, where three council seats area available, only one person filed by the July 15 5 p.m. deadline.The following is a list of cities and candidates from throughout Northern Utah who submitted their list of candidates after the July 15 5 p.m. deadline.
