Wade Kaufman, P&Z Commissioner

wkaufman@tetoncountyidaho.gov

I have lived in the Valley my entire life with extended family and my personal family. Kristi and I have five children and two grandchildren and love spending time with family and the outdoors. I am a local business owner and volunteer on many local non profit and state boards. I believe that if you want things to remain the same or change then get involved, don't wait for someone else to step up. I have loved this valley and the mountains for many years and have grown to love and appreciate the quality of life this Valley has so freely given me and many others. I have been from the East to West Coast and many places in the middle and I still believe that Teton Valley is still a Gem that has a value that is worth standing up for. 
 
 
 

Tyler Wertenbrunch, P&Z Commissioner

twertenbruch@tetoncountyidaho.gov

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.
