Runyon, Stavney, for the kids of Eagle County

There are many ways to evaluate the perspective county commissioners.

I encourage you to vote for those candidates who support education, especially early childhood education.

It is well documented that every dollar spent to enhance early childhood development provides a savings of from $7 to $17 in health care, welfare, criminal justice and special education over the lifetime of the child.

So it makes sense to invest in our children. This is a sound use of our public dollars as it helps to make us a better community.

The BrightStart early childhood initiative was started just over a year ago with leadership and funding provided by our county commissioners.

BrightStart is designed to support early childhood development for all children in Eagle County.

Its goals are to ensure that children enter school ready to learn, to ensure that families are able to meet the needs of their children and to retain a workforce of families with children for our community. Parents can’t work if they don’t have child care.

Achieving these goals and investing in programs with proven results, to the betterment of our community, is a good use of public funds. Join me in supporting the candidates that believe we can be a better community if we invest in our children.

Vote for Peter Runyon and Jon Stavney for county commissioners.
