SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - One of two candidates remaining in the race to serve as the first mayor for the new city of Millcreek will decide in the coming months if he’ll stay in the race.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/29liMy4 ) Fred Healey is still determining if his diagnosis of kidney cancer will allow him to campaign against Jeff Silvestrini before this November’s election.

Healey and Silvestrini were the top two finishers in the June 28 primary election, which narrowed the field of nine candidates. The top two winners in the nonpartisan race will face off on the November ballot.

If Healey drops out, Silvestrini will be unopposed. State law does now allow a third-place finisher to move up and take his place.

Any write-in candidate must file with the Salt Lake County clerk’s office by Nov. 9.
