Candidates woo Park City's influential real estate industry

(Park Record) Diania Turner, lacking the name recognition of her two most formidable opponents for the Park City's mayor's office, was especially animated during a Thursday candidate forum, at one point saying it is "disgusting" that there is not more housing for senior citizens in the city.

Turner, who more than a year ago became the first person to publicly announce their mayoral aspirations, is running an upstart campaign from the position of a political outsider. She is one of four candidates competing in the Sept. 15 primary. Two will advance to Election Day in November.

Appearing with two of her competitors in front of the Park City Board of Realtors during a meeting on the shores of the Jordanelle Reservoir, Turner said progress must be made for senior citizens in Park City.

"How disgusting is that," she said as she spoke about the minimal number of housing options for senior citizens.

Turner, though, did not provide details about how she would press for senior-citizen housing if she is elected. Mayor Dana Williams, one of her opponents, has long supported the idea of providing housing options for senior citizens, but there has been limited progress during his two terms.

Meanwhile, Turner said she wants City Hall spending reviewed, claiming she has discovered money-saving options in the private sector. She runs a shuttle company.
