OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- State representative Neil Hansen is seeking a new political office.

The Ogden Democrat has filed as a candidate in the city's mayoral race.

Hansen says he could do more for his city as mayor than he can as one of 75 lawmakers in Utah's House of Representatives.

Hansen's held his House seat for five terms. Utah law wouldn't require him to give up the spot if he's elected mayor.

Ogden's two-term Mayor Matthew Godfrey has said he'll run for a third term, but hasn't filed candidacy papers.

Also running is Doyle W. Sexton, a retired Hill Air Force Base machinist.

The candidacy filing deadline is July 16. Voters will select two candidates in a primary election on Sept. 11
