Letter: Why she’s for Jim

Jim Ingraham is the clear choice for City Council at large. After successfully having run against one of the other current candidates, and having served on Council for three years, I have an insight into this race that few others share.  

The following is why I am an adamant supporter of Jim Ingraham. Glenwood needs leadership with integrity — the kind of person who will behave the same and treat people with dignity and respect whether they are in front of a camera, in a meeting, in a café, meeting one-on-one or on social media.

Glenwood deserves leadership that is straightforward, honest and transparent. Glenwood needs leadership that will be collaborative, not obstructive.

There are many serious issues that are coming before Glenwood. We need real, concrete solutions; not just pie-in-the-sky generalities or vague promises. We don’t need theatrics — we need representatives that have honest to goodness values that represent Glenwood Springs. 

Winston Churchill stated, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” I urge voters to do their homework. Research the candidates. By doing so, you will see that Jim Ingraham is the kind of leader that Glenwood needs now. Glenwood is more than one issue.

Jim Ingraham is a respectful, quiet leader with integrity. He works hard to find solutions, the best solutions that protect the character of our community and provide wise stewardship and use of city resources. He is a visionary and has the courage to stand up for what he believes is right and what is best for Glenwood’s future. And he does so while listening, working collaboratively and treating every person with respect.

He is a mentor to future leaders, to ensure that the young have a voice in city governance and encourages their participation. He is an advisor to local startup entrepreneurs who benefit from his experience.

You have a choice in who will represent you. I want someone who is able to bring people together, and to do what is best for our community. That person is Jim Ingraham.
