Campaign starts with candidate who grew up in Park City

A Park City woman with experience in the private and not-for-profit sectors on Wednesday launched a bid for the Park City Council, becoming the first person to announce their intentions to compete in this year’s contest.

Becca Gerber said in a prepared statement she is motivated to run "by her desire to ensure the Park City we leave behind provides the same quality of life for those that come after us. Let’s make a plan for the Park City of tomorrow."

The statement says she has lived in Park City since she was 9 years old and grew up enjoying Park City’s recreation offerings. She is a graduate of Park City High School. She taught skiing and swimming. Her background includes work with the Park City Institute and the Park Silly Sunday Market. She is a member of the board of the Historic Park City Alliance and City Hall’s Recreation Advisory Board, the statement says.

"As Park City evolves and new players enter the game we need to make a plan to preserve our values and shape the changes that will inevitable come," she said in the statement. "I know we can be a world class ski destination and still take care of the community that makes it all happen if we properly plan."
