July 22, 2011 KCPW interview by Jeff Robinson
The race is on for Salt Lake City Council District Six, representing the east side. We were joined by Tracey Harty. The longtime resident of District Six has been active in the neighborhood’s historic preservation efforts, and lists planning, open space, arts and culture, and dogs among her interests in the race. We asked her about the ideas she brings to the election, and how she’ll distinguish herself from the other two candidates. Listen here

Tracey Harty Announces Candidacy
 for Salt Lake City Council District 6

Native Utahn and first-time politician brings new energy and enthusiasm to city council race
June 11, 2011—Advertising executive and community activist Tracey Harty threw her hat into the ring today, announcing her candidacy for the Salt Lake City Council District 6.

Harty’s plans for the office include strategic planning for the future of the city’s remaining open space, developing transportation options for Foothill Drive, Sunnyside Avenue and 2100 South through “complete streets” planning, updating the East Bench Master Plan and cementing the city’s Historic Preservation Plan to ensure Salt Lake’s treasured assets are preserved.

“I have the enthusiasm, energy and desire to work hard for residents in District 6, to find better ways to communicate new initiatives to residents and to ensure each individual voice is heard at City Hall,” Harty said. “I firmly believe in citizens taking an active part in our government, and this campaign is focused on that—Harty is the best choice for your voice.”

Harty is very active in her neighborhood council, Yalecrest Neighborhood Council, and has served since 2010 as the co-chair of nonprofit Yalecrest Yes! Heritage Preservation Committee. Harty also serves as vice president of the Northern Utah Chapter of Women’s Transportation Seminar, an international organization dedicated to the advancement of women in transportation. Professionally, Harty works as an advertising account supervisor at local communications firm Penna Powers Brian Haynes. Prior to joining PPBH, she served as executive director at the nonprofit Gina Bachauer International Piano Foundation.

Harty’s roots are deeply planted in Salt Lake soil. Born and raised in the Salt Lake Valley, Harty graduated from East High School in 1984 and the University of Utah in 1990. Harty is married to Bill Harty and has two daughters, Katelin, a graduate of East High School, and Jessianne, a sophomore at West High School.
