Daniel Bay Gibbons, 61, will represent Holladay’s District 5 after collecting 55% of the vote and defeating Lori Khododad, according to Salt Lake County Clerk’s election results page.
The victory marks a return for Gibbons, who served for two years on Holladay’s first city council from 1999 to 2001. Gibbons, a former judge, built his campaign on the promise to preserve the district’s “semi-rural character” and maintain its low-density zoning standards.
In District 4, Drew B. Quinn, 63, has defeated Peter Monson by a large margin with 79% of the vote. Quinn will represent residents in the municipality’s north-east, including former neighborhoods of the East Millcreek Township she petitioned to annex into the City of Holladay in 2014. Quinn, a former administrative law judge, currently serves as a hearing officer for the city. She will replace Steven Gunn, whose term expires in 2020.
Matt Durham, who ran unopposed, picked up 100% of the 792 ballots cast in District 2 and will represent north-central Holladay. Durham, 56, works as an attorney, and ran on the promise to maintain the city’s quality of life by balancing “walkable public areas” and “open spaces for recreation,” while also promoting “responsible and managed growth.” Durham will replace Brett Graham, who was appointed to an unexpired term in 2018 and declined to seek another term.
