Newman the right choice

Dear Editor:

I hope you will join me in supporting George Newman for county commissioner.

I have known George for years. As a head instructor for the Colorado Outbound School, he was respected for his leadership skills and calm, sound judgment. George continued his educational experience from the Outbound School and moved to the Roaring Fork Valley, where he served as director of Leadership Aspen for nine years, growing the program to a statewide model for excellence in community organizations.

Working hard to protect local ranchlands and preserve a rural economy, George has guided ranchers and land conservationists in trustworthy agreements to secure their properties, helping preserve the rural character of the valley. George understands the complex range of issues in Pitkin County. From transportation and affordable housing to protecting our water and open space, George Newman will be a decisive and thoughtful leader for our community.
