Anyone but Jory Francis for Layton Mayor

I’m sure it goes without saying, but I absolutely in no way back Jory Francis for the future mayor of Layton, Utah. In fact I’d even go as far as to say my campaign is “Anyone but Jory for Mayor”! Why you ask? I know that with Layton’s council-manager setup the mayor doesn’t hold as ...
