East Carbon voters made their selections on Tuesday and now they have a field to pick from when the general election will be held.

The town voted to eliminate two candidates from the field of four for mayor. Incumbent Orlando La Fontaine took the largest number of votes at the polls with 143 votes. In second, and the one who will be in contention with La Fontaine was Andy Urbanik who garnered 87 votes.

The two candidates who were eliminated from seeking the seat in November were Joyce Caviness (69 votes) and Charles Williams (22) votes.

The city also had a primary for two council seats. Five people were running for those offices and one was eliminated during the voting on Tuesday.

The candidate who got the most votes was Darrell Valdez with 169 votes. In order of vote count second was Cheryl McFarland (134), Darlene Ann Kuhns (131) and David Fryer (90). The lowest vote total went to Marie J. Owens who got 78 votes and who was eliminated from contention in the November contest.

The total vote count for the mayors race was 321, while the total for the council seats was 602.

The vote prepared the field for the general election which will take place on Nov. 3. At that point all municipalities in the county will vote for mayoral and council seats.

Now that this primary election has passed, the candidates have the opportunity to approach voters as the prime candidates for offices within their cities. In some cases, such as in Price, there are a number of uncontested seats that will be up for election.

The Sun Advocate will have special pages in the paper on Oct. 8 highlighting the candidates. Between now and the end of September letters will be going out to all candidates to get their input on that publication.

The pages will give the candidates the chance to let voters know where they stand on important issues concerning their various cities.
