Tory Welch files candidacy for Summit County Council

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah – Another candidate has thrown their hat into the ring for Summit County Council, as Tory Welch officially filed his candidacy for Summit County Council Seat A.

“Great places are built and maintained through the intentional and thoughtful actions of insightful leaders who are informed by the values and concerns of the citizens. I’m running because I feel a responsibility to help guide the path of Summit County in a positive direction for its citizens,” Welch wrote in a statement.

Welch has lived in Hoytsville with his wife and four children since 2013. After graduating from Morgan High School, Welch would join the U.S. Army, serving as a heavy equipment operator, serving two tours in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

After his military career, Welch worked for Rocky Mountain Power Company as a Journeyman Lineman. Welch was based in Rocky Mountain Power’s Park City office for nearly five years, sending him to every corner within Summit County.

Welch left Rocky Mountain Power in 2017 to start his own utilities excavation company, which operates primarily in Summit County.

“Life in the mountains, sweat in foreign deserts, service to Summit County and the journey of entrepreneurship in the Wasatch Back have all given me special insights into the interests, concerns and values of Summit County’s greatest asset… the people, and I look forward to representing them,” wrote Welch.

Welch will face Democrats Roger Armstrong and Cami Richardson in the race for Summit County Council Seat A.
