Jeff Layman for Eagle commissioner

Dear Editor:

Jeff Layman has long experience in public service in Eagle County. As a leader in law enforcement and lately as general manager of a metro district, he has served his community well in good times and in bad. He is a leader who has a proven track record of being able to achieve consensus among many different factions on a wide variety of issues. It is this ability that will make him an outstanding commissioner for Eagle County.

The twin challenges facing county government for the next few years will be balancing the needs for essential services with the specter of a seemingly ever-falling revenue stream. In the past, Jeff has managed both budgets and personnel in tight economic times and is well-positioned to do so in the future. He will represent the views of the entire community in the tough decisions to come.

Dan Smith
