Letter: Voicing support for Eagle County Commissioner Jill Ryan for State House

With Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush leaving the State House, a vacancy committee will be appointing a replacement at the end of October.

I urge the committee to appoint Commissioner Jill Ryan. Ryan is charismatic and well loved, a natural-born leader. Beyond that, she is an experienced policy maker with a vision for Colorado’s well being. She has worked at the state level on complex issues such as health care, transportation and environmental sustainability. She has proven her commitment to our community repeatedly.

She is currently serving Eagle County as a commissioner, and before that, she was Eagle County’s public health director. From 2013 until 2017, Commissioner Ryan served on the Colorado State Board of Health as a Gov. John Hickenlooper appointee and was the vice president of the State Board of Health in 2015. In addition, she and her fellow commissioners have managed a $100 million-plus county budget through tough economic times.

Commissioner Ryan has a proven history of protecting the welfare of the citizens of Eagle County. I trust that if she is in Denver, our state will be in great hands. She is selfless in her pursuits, works hard and has great integrity.
