[Updated 7 August 2017]

Here is all the contact information I’ve found for this year’s candidates for American Fork Mayor. I started with official data from afcity.org; the rest I’ve accumulated from various online sources.

If you live or work in American Fork, you should join the All About American Fork group on Facebook. Most of what happens there isn’t politics, but candidates and related events also pop up there from time to time. See also the City’s Voter Information Pamphlet.

If you’re a candidate — or even a voter — who has additional information for any of these, please send it to me, and I’ll verify it and post it. Note that I have not included links in some cases where I think I found the right person, but the profile lacks a photo or is empty. For now, at least, I have included personal Facebook, Twitter, and other social media links, whether there is recent political content there or not.

Candidates are listed in alphabetical order by surname. All street addresses are in American Fork, UT  84003.

I’m a few weeks behind my own self-imposed schedule, but questions are going out to candidates — using some of this contact information, as a matter of fact. (Is it wrong that candidates who don’t supply e-mail addresses make me just a little cranky at times like this?)

I’ll post my questions and their answers when I get them — as much as I can before the August 15 primary. For further discussion of how the election works, see this earlier post.

If you have questions you’d like me to pose, feel free to suggest them. If you’re interested in writing a guest post (or more) for this blog, let me know. The object here is to learn about and discuss candidates and issues — and you don’t have to agree with me.

In case you’re wondering, I haven’t yet decided where all my votes are going, so I’m as eager to learn as anyone.

Contact information for mayoral candidates is in a separate post.
