Letter: Steve Davis’ qualifications

John A. Virgili
Glenwood Springs

I am writing this letter to support Steve Davis in his bid for Glenwood Springs City Council. I met Steve and his wife, Marilyn, over 20 years ago when they moved to Glenwood Springs and purchased Summit Canyon Mountaineering.

Looking back, I think downtown redevelopment really started in 1995 when Steve relocated Summit Canyon from the Tamarack Mall to its current location at Eighth and Grand. Steve’s impeccable taste, concern for employees and extraordinary customer service established Summit Canyon as the anchor store for the downtown. He realized the potential for downtown then and he realizes it now.

Ten years ago, after Steve had sold all his retail establishments, he entered the construction business with his sons. His business sign reads, “Reinventing Glenwood Springs one project at a time,” and his clients think highly of him. I believe Glenwood Springs is fortunate to have someone in the construction industry who is willing to serve on City Council during the critical time of Grand Avenue bridge construction.

Having been the owner of several Glenwood Springs businesses, Steve knows what it means to work hard, make payroll, hire employees, pay taxes and invest in a business and the community. With all the decisions that need to be made in Glenwood Springs in the next four years, I think Steve is the type of rational and deliberate decision maker that we need to move forward.

Steve isn’t a micromanager; he is a strategic thinker who will get things done. I encourage Ward 1 residents to elect Steve Davis.
