SUMMIT COUNTY – Candidates were announced Friday afternoon in four town council and mayoral elections across the county, with three races unopposed.

In Breckenridge, seven candidates will run for three council seats. The list of candidates as they will appear on the ballot: Dave Rossi, Mike Dudick, Rodney Allen, Larry Crispell, Mark Burke, Ben Brewer and Jennifer McAtamney.

Rossi and McAtamney are incumbents; Allen is a member of the town’s planning commission.

In Silverthorne, five candidates will vie for three open positions. Darrick Wade, Stuart Richardson, David Preaus, Russ Camp and Dave Anderson are all in the running. Mayor Dave Koop will run for re-election unopposed.

In Frisco, there may not be an election. Three candidates – Kimberly Cancelosi and incumbents Woody Van Gundy and Kent Willis – have filed petitions to run for three open seats.

Frisco Town Council on Tuesday will likely approve a resolution on the consent agenda to cancel the election if nobody files an affidavit of intent to run by the end of business on March 12.

The resolution is in accordance with state statute allowing for the candidates to be elected to office automatically if there’s no competition.

A similar outcome may be expected in Dillon, where three people have filed petition to run for three open council seats as well.

However, Dillon mayoral candidates Ronald J. Holland and Don Parsons will be competing for votes in the April 6 election.
