RANGELY I Tyson Hacking, one of the 10 candidates for Rangely Town Trustee, is hopeful his enthusiasm for Rangely and its potential will encourage your vote in the April election.
“I am excited about the upcoming plans they have for the Town of Rangely, and believe I can offer a cutting edge in helping accomplish the town’s goals for growth and sustainability,” said Hacking, who also says he’s already been meeting with town officials.
“I want to maintain the feeling of safety in the community,” he said. “I want the citizens of Rangely to experience that same feeling of kinship that I have grown to know and love. I want to offer my experience and connections to assist the Town of Rangely to grow and ensure economic stability.”
Hacking grew up in neighboring Vernal, Utah, but says “don’t hold it against me.”
He then worked for several years on the Wasatch Front Range before moving to Rangely.
The father of three describes himself as a family man “with strong core values and morals.”
Hacking believes his vast experience working with municipalities helps qualify him for the job of town trustee.
“I have many years of experience with working directly with city planners, city councils, and utility superintendents for future city planning and zoning,” he said. “I have provided Payson, Mount Pleasant, Ephriam, Lehi, Brigham, Hyrum, Springville, Spanish Fork and Salem cities, along with Lincoln Power District with recommendations for power supply and quality, load growth analysis data, power pole attachment data and GIS data.
“I have also provided hydroelectric generation study data to Los Angeles County Water Reclamation, Orange County Water Conservancy District, and several Water Districts throughout several states,” he said. “I have written project proposals, RFP’s, managed project negotiations, budgets and purchase orders. I have written legal descriptions and rights of way for land/site acquisitions on Bureau of Land Management, school and institutional trust lands administration, and private properties.
“I have assisted municipalities in preparing rights of way easements and required permits for transmission poles, transmission lines and substation locations,” he said. “I have provided quality control to electrical/civil engineers to ensure local, state and federal compliance.
“And I feel comfortable working with city municipalities and look forward to serving the Town of Rangely in that capacity,” he said.
