Letter: Vote Stepp for commissioner

Please vote for Paula Stepp for Garfield County Commissioner this Nov. 6. Paula has a strong work ethic, a forward-thinking mindset, natural compassion as well as practical skills to serve us well. Above all, she has integrity.

Paula has been working extremely hard this past year to meet and listen to as many people and perspectives as she can, attending county commissioner, town board, city council, special district, owner association and service club meetings from Carbondale to Parachute, as well as topic forums, chamber functions, special events, neighborhood meetings and going door-to-door.

I’ve observed her efforts first hand and been amazed at her hard-working commitment to earn this office and sincerely work for the prosperity and well-being of Garfield County residents.

Her efforts to educate herself about our concerns as residents and business owners, as well as learn about local government process and politics, assures me that she will have no problem getting up to speed fast and jumping in on the important issues we collectively face, including affordable housing and health care, trails and transit connectivity, public land and access protections, and new business and job opportunities.

It’s also exciting to learn about Paula’s goals to work collaboratively with local leaders for the common good, seek term limits for the county commissioner seats, and expand the Board of Commissioners from three to five members for improved representation of the diverse and fascinating character of Garfield County.

I hope you’ll support Paula on your Nov. 6 ballot as the best choice to take us into the next chapter for Garfield County.
