Vail Daily letter: Asking for your vote
My name is Elizabeth Jones and I am running for a four year term on the WECMRD board this Tuesday. My family has been involved with WECMRD for 11 years and I know that the WECMRD facilities are by far some of the greatest assets of our valley. As a parent of three great kids that grew up in WECMRD programs and as a taxpayer, I feel compelled to offer my service as a public administration professional to the WECMRD organization. My career began in the military where I learned to be straightforward and direct; I’ve worked for a wide variety of companies since, from big corporations to small family-owned businesses and I’ve owned businesses as well. I have a degree in public administration, work with a variety of budgets and am currently serving on four boards.
In the next five years, transparency, accountability and a shared vision for the future needs of the valley are critical to WECMRD’s success. As our population is expected to continue to grow, and the needs and desires related to organized sports programs, field use, and the overall services WECMRD offers grow, the organization must be poised to respond to higher expectations for quality programs and facilities available to everyone.
A strong board is needed for progression and growth of our valuable facilities. If you live in the WECMRD district, please vote in person on Tuesday! Please visit your nearest polling location at Eagle County Health Services District, 1055 Edwards Village Blvd., Edwards, or Eagle Pool and Ice Rink, 1700 Bull Pasture Rd, Eagle, or Gypsum Recreation Center, 52 Lundgren Blvd., Gypsum between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. I humbly ask for your vote.
