Letter: Poschman thanks Pitkin County supporters
November 16, 2016
Thank you to the voters of Pitkin County who recently elected me to the Board of County Commissioners. So many in our community worked hard for this win by advising me, canvassing and donating their skills, talents and funds to make my campaign viable. It truly takes a village to elect a candidate.
Howie and Betty Wallach and Blanca O'Leary led teams of Democrats who included me when making calls or walking door to door. My dear friend and "Incident Commander" Dede Brinkman was tireless, as were my "Kitchen Cabinet" — Bill Stirling, Dave Nixa, John McBride, Debbie Ware, Linda Carnes, Harry Teague, Pete Louras and Jack Hatfield. My wife, Maureen, and my daughters Willow and Isabella worked with me and tolerated me for months. I am grateful for the friendship and help from Dick Carter and Sharon Wells, Kelly Alford and company, and very many other valuable friends who worked on my behalf.
I want to reaffirm my commitment to doing the best job I can for Pitkin County and for our community. I look forward to working with the BOCC and county staff.
Finally, I would like to encourage residents of Pitkin County to get involved as volunteers, as advisers or as candidates. All the promises of our great community will depend upon your service. My campaign demonstrated to me that there is no match for an organized network of minds and hearts working together. As we go forward, I hope that everyone in our community feels confident that their voice and their constructive ideas will be heard.
Pitkin County commissioner-elect
