After overcoming several different major hurdles, Farley Anderson of Paradise is now an official independent candidate for governor of Utah. Anderson marched in the local Independence Day parades Monday. Anderson has scheduled rallies at Paradise Park Tuesday, Willow Park in Logan Thursday and Hyrum’s Main Street Park on Friday, each starting at 8 p.m.With the help of the American Civil Liberties Union, Anderson turned to the Utah Supreme Court when the Utah Lieutenant Governor’s office rejected his electronic e-signatures. Anderson won the legal challenge and the ruling has received national attention. Over the weekend Anderson and his runningmate Steven Maxfield of Kanosh, Utah got the 1,000 e-signatures needed for him to get on the ballot as part of the Utah Independence Movement.
