Draper - After a mid-term resignation by Greg Nuzman, the Traverse Ridge Special Service District Control Board had been left with a vacancy, and a qualified replacement needed to be found.
Two applicants, Edan Jorgensen and Justin Manakowski, submitted applications stating their interest in the position and detailing their professional experience. Then, at a city council meeting last month, the nominees were given an opportunity to introduce themselves and explain their intentions formally.
Jorgensen recognizes that there is a disconnect between SunCrest and Draper, even though they are the same entity. “I love the opportunity to serve. I think SunCrest is a young community; we have a lot to learn,” he said.
Jorgensen is heavily involved in his community. In addition to working for LDS Philanthropies, an organization that fundraises for LDS charities and schools, he has also coached youth soccer for each of the four years that he’s lived in Draper.
Councilman Bill Colbert said, “I was impressed with the caliber and qualifications of both candidates. It’s a challenging position to vie for.”
Upon hearing the views of both applicants, Jorgensen was unanimously voted in by the council.
