Among the likely voters surveyed, real estate broker Lavar Campbell, of Sandy, said he likes Crockett’s approach of thoroughly reviewing county operations, even with outsiders, "to try to come up with the best solutions to make things work. That’s probably the best approach I’ve ever heard of in government."
Shauna Call, a stay-at-home mom and preschool teacher from Draper, said she knew little about either candidate but was inclined to vote for Crockett because "I just agree more with the Republican platform."
Like many others, Marshall Leatherbury, 62, of Cottonwood Heights, is undecided.
"It appears that both men are capable of doing it," said the retired Union Pacific Railroad manager. "I haven’t made a decision yet because I lean toward the Republican side, but McAdams does have a lot of outside endorsements. That could sway me."
Julie Neilson, a retired Delta Air Lines flight attendant manager from Holladay, said she is firmly in the McAdams camp.
"I’m more of a liberal person and, living in Utah, it’s been strictly Republican," she said. "I like more of what McAdams stands for. … He seems like a guy I can trust more. Crockett seems to be fighting for [Republican presidential candidate Mitt] Romney and sticking to his party."
