Letter: Charlie knows Glenwood
For those of you who do not know Charlie Willman, please take a minute to read what longtime resident Charlie Willman brings to the City Council table.
Charlie is running for the open at large City Council position, and his leadership, experience and list of relevant credentials position him as an exceptional candidate. As a Glenwood Springs resident for more than 25 years, I have witnessed firsthand the hard work, numerous contributions and vision that Charlie has contributed to our growing and changing community.
As a member and chair of the Downtown Development Authority, Charlie has helped lead and navigate Glenwood Springs through recent and long-term opportunities, including the library project and Seventh Street development, and he looks forward to assisting with the upcoming Sixth Street development. In addition, Charlie has recently been instrumental in the Community on the Move organization, which helped pass the recent A&I tax for future community development, as well as being the key anchor for the renowned Glenwood Springs High School Mock Trial program. This, paired with numerous other community contributions, positions Charlie as an “in the know” candidate.
Charlie gets it, and understands the increasing traffic, lack of affordable housing, and infrastructure challenges that we face as a community. Hard work, creative ideas and leadership have earned Charlie the reputation as an individual who gets things done. Charlie understands the requirements of being a member of City Council, and feels the best thing he can do is to be an active listener and assist in professionally representing and implementing the voice of the Glenwood Springs community.
Glenwood is at an exciting and opportune historic crossroads. We need an experienced decision maker on the team, and Charlie knows Glenwood. The election is Tuesday, April 4, and ballots will be sent out in mid-March.
