Rippy knows what matters

Dear Editor:I am a Democrat and I am voting for Republican Becky Rippy for the House, in District 61, this year. I have known Becky Rippy for 20 years. She has worked tirelessly toward creating lasting and positive change in this valley. Becky is someone who has dedicated herself in the protection of children’s rights while raising two wonderful boys of her own. She has owned two private businesses and has worked with people in every walk of life. She has dealt with government entities and the struggle of making changes within the system.Becky’s husband, Steve, was born here and together they take their dedication to our region to the highest level. What I love most about Becky is the fact that she is a smart, everyday citizen, who is aware of the challenges that face this area. She is willing to fight to try to make a difference. Watching the frustration of running a campaign and seeing the work and difficulties the candidate encounters makes me even more impressed with her dedication and character.Becky knows what matters to us, knows what needs to be done, and has the ability to make it happen. She is a passionate local who will honestly protect our valley. She will not waver, and will be honest and true to her word. Becky Rippy is the first light in this political tunnel that can bring us closer together, not drive us apart.Scotti SilvermanGlenwood Springs
