Snyderville Planning Commissioner Is Candidate For Council


The first non-incumbent has declared as a candidate for a seat on the Summit County Council.

Canice Harte, currently a Snyderville Planning Commissioner, says he will run, as a Democrat for the seat that’s being vacated by Council Member Kim Carson.   

Harte explained why he’s running for the Council seat, after serving for six years on the Snyderville Commission.       

“I feel that I’ve done good work there.  And there’s so much more that I would like to do.   And I feel that the County Council is the place to do that.  In large part, the type of decision-making the Council can do, opposed to what the Planning Commisison does.   So it’s a better forum for doing that work.  And I clearly have areas focused, priorities for myself that generally align with the county’s Strategic Plan.  I hope to be able to add into that, and then advance that agenda further.”

County Council candidates have to declare for one of the seats that are up on this year’s ballot.

Of the three incumbents, Doug Clyde has disclosed he would seek another term.   Roger Armstrong hasn’t decided.   

However, Kim Carson said she wouldn’t seek another four years.    Therefore, Harte said it made sense to file for her position.      

“It’s a rare opportunity when a Council Member steps down.  The seat is left vacant.   So the natural place to go would be, leave the Council Members in place that are doing good work, find the open opportunity, which is Kim’s seat, and apply for that.”

Harte said he wants to hear feedback from the citizens.   But in the next year he expects the major issues will be familiar items like traffic, growth, affordable housing, economic development and sustainability.

The filing window for federal, state and local candidates for 2020 opens on March 13th and will close March
