Summit County Secretary
Phone: (347) 622-1562
Email: josh.hobson@gmail.com

Josh is long accustomed to holding minority viewpoints. By choice, he has not owned a car since 2003, preferring his bicycle and mass transit to get around. In 2011, he chose to move to Park City for the unparalleled access to the natural environment and the existence of a transit system.  He recognizes the challenges of advancing a progressive agenda in this state in these times, but believes that is a fight worthy of our commitment. One of the issues Americans have with governments on all levels is the notion the governments are not working for the people. Josh would like to change that by helping to find and support candidates that will work for us.

Mother of two teenage daughters, stepmom of 4 adult children and step-grandmother of 2 sweet grandkiddos, life is very busy! Corrie is thrilled to see the growing activism in Summit County, and very happy to build on the progressive majority in our community.


Summit County State Committeewoman
Phone: (615) 337-2071
Email: deannadrhodes@gmail.com

Deanna Rhodes holds the Committeewoman position. She is an event planner and marketing specialist that lives in Prospector. This past legislative session, she spent time crafting her skills as a citizen lobbyist. The realization of the lack of voice on the state level was eye-opening. “I can’t sit back and wait any longer. If I want something to change, then I have to step up and do everything I can myself.” She is passionate about connecting with the community and she wants to make a positive impact where she lives and works. She stays fueled with lots of caffeine and high fives.
