Letter: Jankovsky is fair-minded, experienced businessman

I am a registered Democrat working in the health care industry in Rifle, and I support the re-election of Tom Jankovsky as Garfield County commissioner.

Tom is a fair minded and experienced businessman who looks out for all interests of Garfield County. What I admire most about him is that he is very capable of compromise. He is also extremely effective in bringing diverse groups together to work for the county’s best interests.

Most politicians have an agenda. Tom’s agenda is simple — he wants to see Garfield County thrive. He is passionate about Garfield County, it’s history, land, water and the people who live here.

As someone who works in the health care industry, I was most impressed with Tom when he advocated for our county and against a Colorado health insurance rate structure that had placed us in the most expensive rating area in the entire country. Determined to take on the Colorado Division of Insurance if necessary, Tom was successful in the effort to remove Garfield County from the resort area designation and reduce premiums. That was in 2014. Since then, Tom has worked tirelessly with state legislators lobbying for affordable and equitable health care premiums for his constituents.

Please join me in voting for a man who has provided transparency in government, fair and consistent leadership and who has only one agenda:  to make Garfield County thrive.
