Silverthorne voters choose Camp, Nadalin, Shattuck and Kieber
Residents of the town of Silverthorne mailed in their ballots or braved the weather on Tuesday, April 5 to vote, selecting four councilmembers from five choices.
Once the dust was settled on its 2,525 total vote cast, incumbents Russ Camp and JoAnne Nadalin were selected, as were newcomers Tanya Shattuck and Robert Kieber. Tom Marmins, a 15-year resident of Summit County, placed fifth.
Nadalin, who was appointed to the position last summer and also had a year of experience on the town’s planning commission, was the top vote getter, with 23.17 percent. She is a retired finance executive and a four-year resident of Silverthorne.
“Focusing on our business base is very important,” said Nadalin before the election. “Town council itself needs to be a forum to discuss ideas and issues. But at the end of the discussion, we all have to work together and support the town 100 percent.”
Next came Shattuck, with 22.85 percent of the ballots cast. She is a 24-year resident of the county and has served on the town’s planning commission for nine years. Her professional background includes small business, banking and community planning.
“I love the work I’ve done here with the planning department, citizens’ advisory and other committees that I’m on,” she said in March, “and I feel that working with town council would be a good step in the right direction. I would like to continue to work on the development of the town core along with traffic improvements in the town of Silverthorne.”
Kieber, a member of the planning commission for more than a decade and resident of Silverthorne for nearly a quarter century, at 22.06 percent and incumbent Camp, at 20.12 percent, rounded out the council selections.
“I believe we need consistent leadership that connects where we have been to where we are going,” Camp, a 20-year county resident, told the Summit Daily in March. “Specific projects I would like to take to fruition include the performing arts center, a walkable downtown and the Smith Ranch.”
Marmins, a pro-bono mediator for the local police departments and a court-appointed special advocate, was edged out with just under 12 percent of the vote.
The towns of Frisco and Breckenridge also held elections around the county. Meanwhile, the town of Dillon canceled its election for four vacant council seats after incumbent Brad Bailey, appointed earlier this year, was the only applicant to fill out a petition to run for council. Appointments will instead be made at a later date, and submissions for potential appointees are still being decided, with Bailey sworn in for a four-year term on Tuesday, April 19.
