Election night results: Beerman, Worel and Gerber win council seats
November 4, 2015
The Park City School District’s effort to win voter approval for an ambitious $56 million bond failed by a wide margin. Preliminary election night results showed 3,001 ballots (60 percent) cast against the measure and 1,944 (39 percent) in favor. Only 31 percent of the school district’s registered voters participated in the decision.
In the race to win three seats on the Park City Council, incumbent Andy Beerman received the most votes, 1,265, and will retain his seat for another four years.
Nann Worel, who currently serves on the Park City Planning Commission earned the second highest number of votes, 1,011 and will take one of the seats currently held by Liza Simpson and Dick Peek, both of whom chose not to run again.
Political newcomer Becca Gerber came in third with 913 votes and will take a seat on the council.
Rory Murphy, Hope Melville and Dan Portwood were unsuccessful in their election bids with 862, 688 and 293 votes respectively.
