SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Due to a lack of competition, Justin Martinez will serve as Summit County Sheriff for another four years.
The campaign filing deadline expired on Friday, and no one filed to run except the incumbent Martinez.
He joins Summit County Attorney Margaret Olson and Summit County Clerk Eve Furse in gaining another term due to no other candidates filing.
“I’m honored, humbled, and excited to continue serving this great community. We’ve accomplished so much, and we are excited to continue our progress,” Sheriff Martinez said in a statement.
The situation was similar in Wasatch County, where Sheriff Jared Rigby, County Attorney Scott Sweat, and County Clerk Auditor Joey Granger also won reelection due to no opposition.
Republican Park City resident Holly McClure is incumbent Chris Robinson’s only challenger for Summit County Council Seat D.
There are five candidates filed for seat E, which is currently occupied by council member Glenn Wright, who filed to run for the U.S. House of Representatives in Utah’s 3rd District.
Summit County Council Seat E candidates:
- Francis Mayor Byron Ames (R)
- Canice Harte (D)
- Coleen Reardon (D)
- Park City resident Michael Franchek (L)
- John “Jack” Murphy (R)
Correction: A previous version of this article stated that Glenn Wright is the Chair of the Summit County Council. Wright was Chair last year, but Chris Robinson is Chair this year.
