Vail Daily letter: Simonton for treasurer

I am writing this letter in support of one of my childhood friends, Teak Simonton, who is running for treasurer of Eagle County. During the past 43 years, I have had the privilege of witnessing Teak's many strong characteristics. She has a passion for helping others, communicates clearly and brings positive energy to everything she does. Her attention to detail and organizational skills are evident in her successful career as county clerk, and I know that she would carry these qualities forward when she is elected as the new treasurer.

One of my favorite qualities of Teak is her willingness to go the extra mile as she has over the past 13 years to ensure an exceptional voting experience for Eagle County residents. I am particularly inspired by Teak's dedication to the residents of Eagle County and I know that she will work tirelessly as county treasurer to ensure that the needs of the community are met. She will serve in her new position with as much positivity and commitment as she has in her role as county clerk. As a friend, I have always been able to count on Teak and I absolutely know that you can, too! I cannot endorse Teak strongly enough, and my only regret is that I am not a resident and cannot have the pleasure of casting my vote for her on Election Day. I urge you to cast yours for Teak Simonton.
