Silverthorne selected a new town council member to fill the position of former councilmember Jon Bird on June 10. JoAnne Nadalin was chosen from a pool of seven candidates and will serve until the municipal election in April of 2016.

Nadalin, president of Silvana’s Community Garden in Silverthorne, has served on the town’s planning commission since 2013. She previously worked as a finance executive for several companies, including Comcast, The Canyons Resort, Adolph Coors and Titanium Metals. Silverthorne Mayor Bruce Butler said prior to Nadalin’s election, she regularly attended town council meetings to keep up on local issues.

“JoAnne’s demonstrated dedication, coupled with her executive background, made her stand out as someone who would be able to transition very quickly to the Silverthorne Town Council,” he said in a statement. “We all knew that JoAnne could be an immediate, valuable contributor to the exciting developments and programs on which we are working.”

Nadalin will be sworn in before Silverthorne’s town council meeting on July 8. She began orientation last Monday.

“I am honored that council selected me to fill Jon Bird’s remaining term,” she said in a statement. “This is a very exciting time for the town of Silverthorne, and I am thrilled to be in a position to help the town progress.”

The town began searching for new council members since a vacancy was declared in May, after Bird, a longtime Summit resident, died on April 15.

Silverthorne currently has vacancies on the town Planning Commission and Economic Development Advisory Committee. To apply, submit a letter of interest to the town by noon on Monday, June 29.
