New Utah Mayor Picked in Random Drawing

The new mayor of Helper, Utah was chosen by picking a name from a basket, KSL-TV reports.

In two rounds of voting, Ed Chavez and Kirk Mascaro "each received two votes from the City Council to fill the mayor's seat. When it became clear that the tie would not be broken, the slips of paper bearing the council members' votes were placed in a wicker basket... City Attorney Gene Strate then drew Chavez's name from the basket, making him Helper's new chief executive officer."
