Andrew Adams, KSL NewsradioIt's a crowded field officially running for Salt Lake City mayor. There are nine people vying for the job.

One guy's even running, and he's on probation. It's attorney John Renteria. University of Utah political science professor Tim Chambless says there are some obvious pros and cons for his campaign.

"He's a person who has a real commitment to the community," says Chambless, "and he's essentially running with no money and minimal name recognition."

And he'll be wearing an ankle monitor. Chambless calls Jenny Wilson the favorite in this crowded field.

The other candidates in the race are House Minority Leader Ralph Becker, Salt Lake City Councilman Dave Buhler; retired engineer Rainer Huck; surgeon J.P. Hughes; Salt Lake County Councilwoman Jenny Wilson; consultant Robert K. Muscheck; former Salt Lake City Councilman Keith Christensen, and 29-year-old student Quinn Cady McDonough.
