Letter: Martin best qualified

“Spectacularly unqualified.” After meeting with Mr. Acha and his representative that’s how the Post Independent’s editorial board described candidate Acha. This is the candidate that the Garfield County Democrats are trying to shove down our throats.

Do they have any care or concern for our county? It seems to me their first consideration should be to field a candidate that is at least minimally qualified to be commissioner. Asking us to vote for a candidate that has yet to demonstrate any level of competency is startling to me.

We all need to vote for the most qualified person to lead our county government. In this election, that person is clearly John Martin. Mr. Martin understands the importance of water to the Western Slope and has consistently fought for our interests. Mr. Martin has been fiscally responsible, and our county is well-positioned to withstand the decline in property taxes. Mr. Martin has been a strong advocate for youth programs.
Please join me in voting for John Martin.
