Heber City Councilman Wayne Hardman Eyes Another Term
On Thursday, Heber City Councilman Wayne Hardman filed for reelection. He considers himself a candidate to represent the interests of concerned local citizens.
Heber City will hold elections for two open council seats in November for the term beginning in 2022. On Thursday, sitting Councilman Wayne Hardman became the first to file for one of them.
He says his motivation is to fulfill a civic duty.
“I just want to stay involved and am concerned about what’s going on in our beautiful little valley of Heber City, and I just want to be there to have my voice heard and have my vote, and it’s an honor and a privilege to have served the citizens these past four years, and I’d just like a chance to serve them again for another four years.”
Hardman says his primary contributions while during his current term have been helping to hire a city manager and adhering to the city zoning plan with his votes on new developments. He says these primarily include the annexation of the 5,700-unit Sorenson development.
Besides sitting on the city council since 2018, Hardman was also a part of the first Wasatch County Council, which formed in 2001. That was for a two-year term.
As for priorities in the next term, he says he would continue to follow the zoning plan in votes that would entail more growth and vote against expanding the Heber Valley Airport.
Born in Heber City, Hardman is a graduate of Wasatch High School and retired electrician for the Utah Transit Authority. He also served in the US Army and worked for the Central Utah Water Project.
He’s married to Julie Hardman and has four children and eight grandchildren.
