Letters: Readers voice support for Park City Council candidates

We need leaders like Nann


Leadership, commitment and energy!

Nann Worel exhibited these qualities during her six years on the Park City Planning Commission and the last four years on City Council. Nann is the Council’s liaison to over 14 different organizations ranging from the School Board to the Senior Center to PC Tots.

Nann is a listener who seeks practical and achievable solutions to Park City’s varied and complex issues.

As a small business owner who lives in the county, I appreciate Nann’s focus on regional collaboration.

On a personal note, I met Nann when she was coming to Park City 15 years ago. She immediately sought volunteer opportunities to become involved in this community. In a short time she went from a People’s Health Clinic volunteer to board member to executive director of the clinic. During this period, Nann also graduated from Leadership Park City and served on the Park City Planning Commission. That takes commitment and energy!

Park City needs leaders like Nann. Please vote for Nann Worel for the City Council.

Vote for Becca


Becca Gerber has been a successful City Councilwoman for the past four years.

I would like to see her re-elected and I will be voting for her in November.

Becca grew up in Park City. She is working and raising a family in our town. Becca loves where she lives. She’s worked hard for Park City the past four years and will continue to do so. She proudly and competently represents the young folks in our town. We need her voice! Her commitment to setting housing goals and moving us toward providing affordable housing opportunities is important work. She is committed to finding solutions to continue to keep our town vibrant, interesting and a place where locals can thrive. Becca’s a good listener, energetic, and understands Park City from a historical perspective. She knows the challenges for growth and responsible management of our town, Park City.

Vote for Becca!

I support Becca


As a Park City resident and voter, I am casting my vote for Becca Gerber on Nov. 5. As a fellow working parent, I appreciate the hard work and dedication Becca has shown in honoring her commitment to our community and the sound judgment she has exercised throughout her first term as a City Council member. I admire her positive can-do attitude and her tireless devotion to her constituents in her role as a public servant.

Becca’s perspective as a long-term Park City resident along with her progressive yet realistic ideas make her an ideal candidate in my view. She is a true advocate for all who call this amazing place their home. I stand in support of her and strongly encourage my neighbors to cast their vote for Becca Gerber on Election Day.

We need Ed


Beyond a doubt, Ed Parigian is the most qualified as a “Vocal Local” to run for one of the Park City Council positions in years. As a dedicated Park City local, Ed will bring his passion for our community to the City Council. Ed has proven himself in his dedication to the community through his persistent pursuit to conserve the Library Field as an off-leash dog park. He truly cares about this town and exemplifies honesty, toughness and dedication. Ed will use those qualities to create a better balance between managing our town’s growth and keeping the small town feel. We need Ed.

Grateful for partnerships


Nana B’s Preserve is a 63-acre property owned by Nuzzles & Co. situated in Brown’s Canyon, just outside the small town of Peoa. In 2015, the Summit Land Conservancy placed a permanent conservation easement on the land to protect the view shed, natural open space, and wildlife habitat of the area. From the Preserve, you can see the winding Weber River, the green pastures of Peoa, and the Uinta Mountains towering in the distance. It is home to wildlife such as mule deer, elk, bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, foxes, rabbits and the occasional grouchy badger.

On Saturday, Sept. 14, 200 Park City Mountain employees and their families joined three local nonprofits (Summit Land Conservancy, Mountain Trails Foundation, and Nuzzles & Co.) at the Nuzzles & Co. Rescue Ranch to embark on a trail restoration project on the Nana B’s Preserve. These dedicated volunteers worked energetically to repair the Nana B’s Mile Loop Trail by removing rocks, raking grass clippings and mulching the walking path and a newly designated parking area for visitors. The bravest folks even tackled a large patch of invasive weeds, thorns and all.

Partnerships like this continue to inspire us. We are grateful for Vail EpicPromise’s commitment to make our community a better place. The impact of this year’s EpicPromise Day is no exception — this project clearly showed that we are stronger when we join hands and work together.

If you get a chance, we encourage you to visit Nana B’s Preserve and walk the newly restored Nana B’s Mile Loop Trail. It is a place for all creatures to enjoy.

Something to consider


When Park City considers awarding the contract to operate cross-country skiing on the Mcpolin Farm this season (Park Record, Sept. 25) I ask they remember how White Pine continued serving our skiers last spring after the other ski areas in town closed early to widespread disappointment.

Looking ‘cowward’ to next summer


A few years ago the National Geographic did a yearlong series on food (I think). Just go look it up, learn everything there is to know about plant and animal production and then for goodness sake just walk from the barn to the church and back and just plain old enjoy the cows and particularly the calves.

I am supremely thankful to whomever watches over me that I didn’t have accident this summer on S.R. 224 as I was always looking cowward. I made up that word. I will be sad when they all go to their winter pastures but will look forward to next summer when they return. I’ll also look forward to what seems to be an annual debate about the critters.

Thanks to The Park Record for publishing all our letters.

Ed would be an asset


I am writing in support of Ed Parigian the Vocal Local for City Council. I have known Ed for 13 years. I’ve seen him help many people in town over the years. Ed is engaging and looks out for his neighbors. He did an excellent job heading the grassroots effort to save the Library Field. He is an enthusiastic participant at City Council meetings. He also supported the preservation effort for Treasure Hill. I have had the opportunity to discuss the town’s issues with Ed, and found him to be knowledgeable and creative with solutions. Ed has an accounting degree (Magna Cum Laude) and a MBA in entrepreneurial enterprise. I think his specific education and work history will make him be a great asset to the Council. He will work to represent the locals’ interests. I ask your readers to vote for Ed Parigian.
