(La Verkin-AP) -- In La Verkin, the southwestern Utah town known for its on-and-off efforts to ban the United Nations from the city, incumbent council member Al Snow came in eighth and failed to make the cut of the top six who will be on the November ballot for three council seats.
Snow was a major booster of the anti-U-N movement, as was former Mayor Dan Howard, who also made an unsuccessful bid for a council seat.
A repealed ordinance to make La Verkin will be on the November ballot as a referendum, and Snow will be campaigning for it.
Snow said voters will have a choice of protecting themselves or fixing potholes.
He said, "Potholes will never take away your inalienable rights from you like the United Nations."
