Letter: A note for Charlie

I have known Charlie Willman for about four years and have been consistently impressed with his dedication to the youth of Glenwood, his efforts in maintaining and improving the quality of life in Glenwood, and his demonstration of high personal qualities.

Charlie has engaged in numerous volunteer efforts in Glenwood. I first came to know Charlie in his role as mentor and supporter of the highly successful and respected Glenwood Springs HS Mock Trial Team. It has been my pleasure to see the teams in action over several years. I am amazed at the level of maturity, skill and dedication these students demonstrate. As a retired educator, I know that this high level of performance only appears when adults are actively supporting, guiding and encouraging the students. This has been one of Charlie’s signature roles over the years.

Many of us know that Charlie has actively participated in several other community roles. These include serving on the DDA board and city of Glenwood citizen advisory boards. This of course is a testament to his commitment to the community, as well as a depth of knowledge of the issues facing Glenwood Springs. 

I have served with Charlie the past two years on the city Transportation Commission. There I have seen his ability to listen to various viewpoints, consider alternatives, and provide leadership in reaching reasonable solutions to complex issues.

It is for these reasons that I encourage [Ward 3] voters to choose Charlie Willman for City Council.
