Vail Daily letter: McQueeney for commissioner

I am writing in support of Jeanne McQueeney for county commissioner. I have worked with her on the Eagle County School Board for many years. As the school board president, Jeanne has shown leadership, vision and a passion for helping our community. Her position as board president came at a time that our school district was hit hard by the recession and we had to make drastic cuts to our budget. During these very tough decisions, when many passionate parents were concerned with the future of our schools, she led with patience and kindness. Her calm demeanor helped everyone, but I was most impressed with her leadership and vision. Her strategic thinking helped to guide our board and our district through tough cuts that at all times focused on what was best for the children and our community.

I believe Ms. McQueeney will be a great county commissioner. She is a longtime local who has been very involved in her community. She is hard-working, thoughtful, and will help lead Eagle County into the future.
