Letter: Jankovsky has proven his leadership

I am writing this letter in support of Tom Jankovsky’s re-election as Garfield County commissioner. Since he took office in 2010, we have seen the impacts of his leadership, and he has represented the people of Garfield County well. He stood up to the oil and gas industry when it wanted to use Four Mile Road as a haul route. He supports the Thompson Divide Coalition’s efforts to protect the forest land southwest of Glenwood Springs. When he saw that Garfield County was named the “most expensive county in the country” for health care, he flew to Washington, D.C., to meet with lawmakers and to testify on our behalf. His efforts were successful, and he and the other commissioners were able to change the state’s designation of our county, which will save us money. He’s also a huge advocate for protecting our Second Amendment rights. In other words, he’s a leader.

His opponent is not.

Garfield County needs Tom’s leadership experience, his budgeting expertise and someone that isn’t afraid to stand up and speak for the people. With the county’s economy improving, this is no time to take a chance on a part-time planning and zoning member who vows to fight the industry that feeds our economy. We need a leader who understands business and the world beyond Carbondale. Tom Jankovsky is that leader.
