Stavney understands county’s issues

W. Mikel Kerst, town of Eagle trustee
Greater Eagle Fire Protection District Board of Directors

I am W. Mikel Kerst (Pappy) and I am endorsing Jon Stavney for Eagle County commissioner. I have lived in Eagle County full time for the past 20 years plus and have known Jon for the past six years. I had the privilege of being appointed to the Eagle Town Council when Jon was elected mayor, before I was elected myself.

During the four years that I served with Jon on the town council, I saw a person that cared about his community who actively directed positive change in the Town of Eagle. We did not always agree, but Jon did keep town of Eagle first and foremost while preserving mutual respect between trustees.

I know that as your next Eagle County Commissioner you will see Jon do the same for our region. Jon is running as the Democratic candidate for county commissioner. But while Jon understands and takes all parties into consideration, it is not about the political party, for Jon but truly about the people of Eagle County.

As a member of the public safety community to which I am an elected official in one jurisdiction and work in another, I know that Jon does understand the issues that face the public safety community with regard to housing, to retain good personnel at the fire departments, ambulance services and law enforcement agencies as well getting us the tools we need to help in working together.

Please join others and me in support of our next Eagle County Commissioner Jon Stavney in the November election. For Jon’s personality and commitment to the town of Eagle will be an asset in Eagle County as our next Eagle County Commissioner.. We all will benefit.
