southern Utah election resultsThings are changing in Hildale. The little town on the Utah/Arizona border, most widely known for its Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints — or FLDS — dominant population, had several first with this most recent election.

For the first time, all of the seats up for election were won by individuals not affiliated (or no longer affiliated) with the FLDS church. The city council will now be made up of the three non-FLDS individuals who were just elected (Maha Layton, Jared Nicol, and Carlos S. Jessop) and the three FLDS city council members whose seats were not up for election.

Also for the first time, the town elected a female mayor. Mayor-elect Donia Jessop is a former church member. According to Jessop, the new city council mix should be a good representation of the city.
