I am pleased to announce my intention to run for the office of Huerfano County Commissioner, District 2. I’d be honored to serve the citizens of Huerfano County and I ask your support as I embark on this endeavor. I will bring to the Board of County Commissioners experience. First, as a successful business owner, working with my clients within the financial community, managing over $20 million in assets. Secondly, serving on the RE1 Board of Education for the past eight years has given me the opportunity to work with a $6 million budget gives me the financial strength to manage the fiscal needs. My ability to work with a team on several other boards and organizations I have served in the past will provide the insight needed to work with others to come to a unified decision which affect the community we serve. Thirdly, I feel my involvement within the community have given me the knowledge to understand the evolving needs of our community.
My top three goals are to increase revenue on the county by looking for and creating new industry, increase affordable housing for our citizens and third, to fight for infrastructure which will bring every resident in the county, specifically those who choose to live in the rural beauty of the county, the technology needed to propel us into the 21st century by bring broadband throughout the county. I will address the needs of the four communities as well as those living in nonincorporated areas. Throughout the campaign. I’ll be coming to you to hear what you want for our County. I trust that together we can make Huerfano County a place where industry thrives, taxes are used wisely and well, and diversity of ideas is welcomed. Growing up in Huerfano County and with myself, wife Mary jo and our family’s subsequent return, I understand the needs of the Citizens and I look forward to serving our citizens.
