Spotlight on a Silt Trustee: Meredith Robinson
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado
Hometown: Halstead, Kansas
Years in Silt: 13
How long a trustee: since August 2005
Term up: April 2010
Will you run again? I truly don’t know
Occupation: Business manager
What do you like most about being a trustee? I like being a part of forming the codes and of the new projects that will define Silt in the future.
Do you feel like you’ve accomplished your goal in helping Silt progress as a trustee? Not yet. We need commercial development to fuel progress.
Biggest issues you see facing Silt today? The lack of commercial development and a town that seems split between old and new residents. We should all be in this together.
Where do you see Silt 10 years from now? I would like to see Silt as a part of an active region including New Castle and Rifle. Ferguson Crossing and other commercial centers will be completed and filled with shoppers.
Best vacation ever: We spent 10 days in Italy.
Best piece of advice you’ve ever received as a trustee: No one gave me advice, but the main thing I remember is that we are part of representative government. I represent the citizens of Silt and I was elected to examine all the facts and information, then make the decision I believe is best for Silt. That is what I do for each decision I need to vote on.
If you could invite any three people to dinner, who would they be, what would you serve and what would you talk about? John Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Hitler; everything.
Greatest woman in history: Golda Mier, she really did do it all ” home, family, and run a country.
