Berentzen reconsiders running after residents petition

History has repeated itself for North Logan Mayor Lloyd Berentzen. Four years ago he filed for the office of mayor after a group of citizens signed a petition urging him to do so.

His term expires this year, and three weeks ago Berentzen announced on <a href=”″ target=”_blank”>KVNU’s Crosstalk show</a> that he would not be seeking re-election. Soon after that he was presented with a petition from citizens again asking him to reconsider.

Berentzen had planned to support current councilmember Nancy Potter for mayor, but she decided to stay on the council.

“That kind of changed things a little bit for me and with the petition in there I thought ‘let me talk to those folks and a few others,'” Berentzen said. “We kind of came to a conclusion yesterday and we said let’s go ahead and try and see if the people would like to have us serve another term, so that’s where we’re at.”

Chris Nelson is also running for North Logan Mayor. In addition to Nancy Potter, council candidates are John Bailey, Bradley Crookston and Russell Goodwin. Two councilmembers will be elected.
