Park City has wonderful invigorated leaders with a great sense of community and cooperation. Clearly, Park City is experiencing great change. I am keenly interested in learning more about how change affects planning and community resources on the local level. I am interested in the persistent ‘development versus conservation’ conundrum. I grew up in rural Montana where this was also a significant challenge and striking a balance is key to maintain the high quality of life that we all enjoy in Park City. I look forward to representing my precinct as a county delegate.
