Summit County

Summit County Council Member Kim Carson says she’s had some positive feedback from leaders at the Utah Association of Counties—after the Summit Council last week sent a letter complaining about inappropriate politicized comments at some UAC gatherings.

Previously, Carson has not identified the county official who interrupted a UAC meeting in late September,  lobbied on behalf of President Trump and singled out Carson as a Democrat.

But on Wednesday,  she did talk about him by name, since a UAC official has disclosed his identity.

The Summit County Council Wednesday  approved a letter, expressing ‘serious concern”,  to the Board President of the Utah Association of Counties.

The letter says that at a UAC meeting earlier this fall, a  county official made a partisan political pitch for President Trump, and pointed a finger at  Summit County Council Member Kim Carson in his comments.    She was, the letter said, essentially bullied.

The letter says this is the latest in a series of incidents that undermine the professionalism and civility of UAC.
