At 38, she’s one of the youngest Senate candidates nationally, and her win sets the stage for a dynamic race in November.

The Park City Appeal Panel denied an appeal against the Planning Commission’s approval of Matthew and Tatiana Prince’s proposed home on King Road, but sent a portion back for further review on sensitive lands overlay concerns. This delay pushes the final decision to late May. The debate, which lasted over six hours, highlighted procedural issues. Once the Planning Commission decides, opponents could appeal the decision to the District Court. Approval from Park City’s Historic District is also required before building permits would be granted.

Former President Donald Trump is set to visit Park City in late June for a private campaign fundraiser as part of his potential 2024 presidential bid. The event, hosted at an undisclosed hotel, will likely draw wealthy donors from across the state and feature prominent Utah political figures. This visit follows a record-breaking fundraiser for the former president in Florida earlier this year. Trump’s last visit to Utah was in 2016, and was marked by both supporters and protesters in Salt Lake City.
