Letter: McQueeney for commissioner

McQueeney for commissioner

Check the box, seal the envelope marked “McQueeney,” and make a difference.

Very rarely can we make a lasting difference with an action that takes just a few minutes, but from now until June 24, you can drop your ballot marked “Jeanne McQueeney for county commissioner” in the ballot box, and do just that — make a lasting difference.

I’ve known Jeanne for nearly two decades; we have worked on various initiatives in both good times and trying times. What never ceases to amaze me is Jeanne’s laser vision for the big picture, never getting bogged down with the trying moments that can go along with public service — or any job for that matter. Jeanne has dedicated her entire adult life to serving her community, and to the individuals who reside within it, with a selfless commitment that is rare to see today.

Jeanne has a depth of experience, overseeing a budget even larger than Eagle County’s for several years while working through complex staffing dynamics, budget cuts and the need to identify priorities that make the biggest impact in our lives and our community.

While I could write a novel about Jeanne McQueeney’s attributes and why I know she is the best candidate for our next county commissioner, I can simply say that Jeanne is the epitome of integrity, honesty, grounded intelligence and commitment to community.

Dropping your ballot off at the County Building from now until June 24 will make a difference for you, for your county and for all of the people who reside within it. Please vote Jeanne McQueeney for commissioner — and please don’t delay!
