Nibley City is holding a municipal election in November to elect three city council members. A primary election will be held on Tuesday, August 13th. One of the declared candidates was a guest on KVNU’s For the People program on Tuesday.
C.J. Pink comes to the race with a unique story. He was raised by his hardworking father, Cecil Pink, who is a Jamaican immigrant and now a U.S. citizen. He grew up in Hyrum and now resides in Nibley. He highlighted one of the challenges facing the city.
“One that sticks out to mind is, for the longest time, Nibley has been and is considered a rural city. People buy their homes with (USDA) loans which is only available to rural housing. At this rate, I can’t say exactly when or how, but we’re going to lose that and it’s going to be a tough thing,” he said.
Pink says, if elected, he will support diversity, encourage green and open spaces for new developments in the city, and support the economic growth of the community. You can learn more at cjpink4nibley.us.
