Future bright with DeClark

Dear Editor:I grew up in Eagle County surrounded by some of the “pioneers” of our community – my dad, Pete Seibert, Rod Slifer and the Gallegos family all come to mind. Everyone had a sense of how special a place this is, as well as the obligation to keep it that way.That’s why I’m voting for Richard DeClark for Eagle County commissioner. Like almost everyone else here, he came to the valley because it’s a great place to raise a family, where a healthy lifestyle and knowing your neighbors are commonplace.I’ve come to know Richard through his participation in our kid’s sports and school programs, as well as his work with the Heuga Center and the Youth Foundation. Richard and Janet have done more than just focus on themselves; they’ve been active volunteers, giving their time and talent to make Eagle County better.Richard brings a formidable background as a successful entrepreneur and the best business practices which that requires. Additionally, he offers a leadership style that makes things happen through careful evaluation of options and building consensus – not only among those who create something (like the park he and his neighbors built in Homestead) – but also those who will benefit in the long term.My dad would be proud of Richard for the kind of selfless, forward-thinking leadership he’s demonstrated. Eagle County citizens can trust that their vote for Richard DeClark is a vote for a robust and positive future.Pete Seibert Jr.Edwards
