Wilson more than just a politician

Dear Editor:

I am really proud to tell you that I just finished voting for my husband, Roger Wilson, and the other Democrats running in Colorado. I wanted to take a moment to tell you why Roger is the smart choice for House District 61.

Many years ago I bought Roger a T-shirt that said, “I really AM a rocket scientist,” because at the time he was working to build computer systems on things like the Hubble Space Telescope. He’s a scientist and an engineer, not a politician.

Since we became residents in Garfield County, he has gained an understanding of many Western Slope issues, including water and land conservation, education, as well as the challenges of local business and ranching.

We need fresh thinking in Denver. Roger will take on issues in Colorado with the same creativity, imagination and intelligence that has earned him respect in the engineering world.

Will you help send a rocket scientist to the Colorado Statehouse?

With the election just days away, we need your help to get out the vote.

Kris Wilson
