Thank you for the support

Dear Editor:

I would like to thank everyone who voted Nov. 4. Civic participation is the foundation of democracy.

Thanks for re-electing me as your District 4 Pitkin County commission­er. Those who stepped up with testi­monials, contributed to the cam­paign fund, wrote letters to the editor, volunteered and/or provided encouragement and support are very much appreciated. Special thanks must go to my base of supporters who have been with me for years. The significant support I received reinforces the fact that the public likes what I am doing and how I do it. Thank you again.

It is also very important to thank my wonderful wife, Ruth, who took on the job of “campaign manager,” critic, proofreader, reality checker and No. 1 supporter.

Finally, I would like to thank those who, under the editorial format, sup­ported my bid for re-election. Obvi­ously your endorsement was consis­tent with the public’s support for my candidacy.

We face many challenges as a com­munity and a resort. We have the team to meet those challenges. Thanks again for allowing me to con­tinue my public service on behalf of the people and the land.

Jack Hatfield

Pitkin County commissioner
