Mayor's lucky draw

The new mayor of the Utah city of Helper got a little help from Lady Luck for his job.

Ed Chavez Jr and councilman Kirk Mascaro each received two votes from the council to fill the vacant position and when it became clear the tie would not be broken, slips of paper bearing council members' votes were placed in a wicker basket.

City Attorney Gene Strate then drew Mr Chavez's name from the basket, making him Helper's mayor until January next year.
