Child will keep family’s green legacy alive
June 24, 2012
Steve Child inherited the same modest and gentle personality as his dad, former Pitkin County Commissioner Bob Child. “The apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree,” they say. Behind that quiet, down-to-earth demeanor lies a sharp, fair-minded intellect honed through years of practical, hands-on experience as a veteran, teacher, rancher and community leader.
Steve and Molly, their family and parents before them, epitomize the values that brought many of us, myself and my family included, to this valley originally: hardworking, honest, plain-speaking stewards of the land and protectors of the environment. Steve is a patient listener and good objective decision-maker. He also has firsthand practical knowledge of most of the issues and challenges facing our county today.
He will represent the best interests of all of the residents of Pitkin County, and he will return your phone call. Nine former county commissioners said it best in a previous letter, “The people of this county are fortunate that Steve is willing to run.” Please vote for Steve Child in the June 26 primary election.
