School board election update
March 11, 2014
The Park City School District Board of Education may have two new members in its seats after this election year. Precinct 5 incumbent Michael Boyle has confirmed his decision not to run for re-election, and Precinct 4 incumbent Charles Cunningham is still deciding whether to run or not.
Cunningham represents the neighborhoods of Bitner, Jeremy East, Jeremy West, Kimball Canyon, Moose Hollow, Lower Silvercreek and Upper Silvercreek.
As of Monday, March 10, Cunningham said he was discussing the issue with his family in order to make a decision during the filing window between March 14 and 20. However, he is sad to see Michael Boyle leave the board, whether he decides to run for re-election or not.
"Michael and Moe [Hickey] have done an outstanding job in terms of leadership on the board. I have never questioned them putting the kids first in their decision-making," Cunningham said. "I am happy for [Boyle] that he’ll be able to do other things, but I am sorry for the district."
South Summit School District Board of Education member Matt Flinders, who represents Precinct 5, and North Summit School District Board of Education member Michael Calderwood, representative of Precinct 4, have yet to comment on their decisions whether or not to run for re-election.
Their counterparts, Steve Hardman in South Summit and Vern Williams in North Summit, previously told The Park Record of their decisions to run for re-election.
