Wade Kaufman, P&Z Commissioner
Tyler Wertenbrunch, P&Z Commissioner
I moved to the valley in fall of 2020 with my wife Ryan and our pup Sushi. Prior to moving to Teton Valley, I managed the IT and Facilities Departments for a multi-discipline design firm and volunteered with an active transportation non profit for over 10 years. Taking a position in IT leadership with St. Johns Health created the opportunity to move to the valley and bring us closer to access all of the outdoor activities we love. Participating in this P&Z Commission provides the opportunity to give back to the community and be a part of why Teton County ID is such a wonderful place to call home.
