Four Vie For Box Elder Mayor Job

Four men are running for Box Elder in the April 14 election, reports KEVN TV. The four aired their views at a recent forum hosted by the Box Elder Chamber of Commerce.

Three-year incumbent William Griffiths Sr. faces challengers Michael Hanson, Larry Larson and Mark Coatney.

Griffiths touts his experience with the U.S. Air Force and his record recruiting new businesses to town during his tenure. Hanson says he has experience with planning and zoning and the chamber of commerce. Larson said he would bring experience from a school board and as a teacher and administrator. Coatney said he wants to be a voice for the people.
