With incumbent Mike Winder out of the race for the West Valley City mayor's seat, the field of candidates is getting crowded.

By the time the filing period ended on Friday, seven residents of the state's second-largest city — including three sitting members of the City Council — had filed to run for West Valley's top spot.

Salt Lake City is in for a major makeover as three incumbents — Carlton Christensen, Jill Remington Love and Soren Simonsen — are not seeking re-election. Incumbent Stan Penfold, who represents Capitol Hill, the Avenues and Federal Heights, is running for another term.

Scores of Utahns have declared their candidacy for mayor and city council spots. A primary to narrow the field to two candidates for each spot in the nonpartisan races will be held Aug. 13, and the general election is Nov. 5.
