BOUNTIFUL - Beth Holbrook would like to be the first woman to ever serve as mayor of Davis County's second-largest city.
Holbrook, a member of the city council, has announced her intention to run for mayor this year in a bid to replace Joe Johnson, who is stepping aside after 12 years in office.
Founded in 1892, Bountiful has never had a female mayor.
While her election would make history, she would not be the first Holbrook to hold the office. The first mayor of the city in 1892 was Joseph L. Holbrook.
Randy Lewis, a former city businessman, has also announced his intention to seek the mayoral office.
Besides the mayor's office, there are two council seats up for election this year. Incumbent Fred Moss told the Standard-Examiner that he will seek a third term in office but longtime Councilman Tom Tolman, said he will not seek re-election.
Potential candidates have from June 3-7 to officially file their candidacy for this election cycle.
This year all 15 Davis County cities will contract with the Davis County Clerk/Auditor's Office to oversee municipal election results for the Aug. 13 primary and Nov. 5 general election.
