She has been attending Logan City Council meetings for the last eight years as a member of the council but Holly Daines will soon be sitting in a different chair, that of Logan City Mayor.
Daines received 58 percent of the votes in Tuesday’s municipal election, defeating her opponent Brian Seamons who received 42 percent. Daines will be sworn into office at the first of the year to replace Mayor Craig Petersen who chose not to seek a second term.
At Logan City Hall Tuesday evening, Daines said she is excited about the win.
“I’m grateful to everyone for their support,” said Daines who was beaming after the win. “I’m excited to work hard for the city because I love the city and the people here and the organization.
“I’m excited to go to work. I appreciate everyone for their kind support.”
After the votes were tallied, Seamons said you don’t have to be a winner to feel good about an election. Seamons was defeated by 16 percentage points Tuesday and congratulated Daines on her successful campaign.
Seamons said he is not discouraged. Instead, he is glad he gave it a try.
“It’s been a great experience,” said Seamons Tuesday evening. “I had a good time, met a lot of good people, had 100% good feedback. I’m very happy.”
Seamons said he will probably seek election at a later time for another local office.
