Ex-commissioners endorse Child

Dear Editor:

As former Pitkin County commissioners, we support Steve Child in his bid to become county commissioner. The people of this county are fortunate that Steve is willing to run.

He is extraordinarily well qualified – a cattle rancher, retired schoolteacher, cross-country ski instructor, bus driver and Army veteran who grew up on his family’s ranch on Capitol Creek. He served on a variety of nonprofit and civic boards, leads land-use discussions of the Snowmass-Capitol Creek Caucus and chairs the county’s Weed Advisory Board.

Steve has demonstrated a willingness to make difficult decisions. At the same time, he listens and fairly considers the ideas of all who approach him. He knows the entire county and its close connections to the rest of the valley community. His diverse background and fair-mindedness will make him an excellent commissioner.

Please vote for Steve Child in the June 26 primary.

Bob Braudis, Patti Clapper, Joe Edwards, Wayne Ethridge, Dorthea Farris, Jack Hatfield (soon to be former commissioner), Mick Ireland, Michael Kinsley and Leslie Lamont
