The city’s unique nominating process calls for a caucus meeting, which was held the night of state primaries, where participants are divided into two non-partisan parties known as Pinecone and Sagebrush. Each party then selects one person for each open position.
Don Carroll and Eileen Moss were nominated by the temporary parties to run for mayor. Carroll is completing his first term on the council; Moss is in the middle of her third term. If elected, she would resign her position on the council, which would be filled by appointment until the next regularly scheduled election.
Those nominated to run for city council are Julia Bushe, Scott Neilsen, Scot Poole and John Whitchurch.
The caucus drew a good turnout, Mayor Todd Stevenson said, with about 100 people.
