Roger Brown: A dedicated county commissioner for Eagle County, Colorado
Gypsum, CO, Colorado
This is a letter of support for Peter Runyon. Peter has been a very focused and dedicated county commissioner. In good financial times he supported conservation easements and other efforts to preserve open space and the ranching way of life, something most of us value highly.
I have no reason to believe he will not look for ways to help the citizens of Eagle Country in these difficult financial times as well. In conversations with me Peter has explained the complications resulting from the TABOR amendment, the roll of the state government, and other real stumbling blocks to reducing our tax burdens.
Even though I studied these issues as a county commissioner candidate two years back I frankly can not get a handle on how it all works. Peter, on the other hand, does understand and is doing the best he can for all of us.
Peter Runyon has my vote.
