I am writing to support Mark Roeber for Delta County Commissioner. My family and I have known the Roeber family for many years.
In fact his father was employed in our family mining company in the 1970s and Mark spent several summers working underground as well.
For me, someone born and raised in Delta County, coal mining has been a large part of my life and two generations before me. Mining has provided my family, and the families of many others, a good honest living. However, as you may be aware, the coal industry has been the focus of increased scrutiny by our current administration. While we may be limited in having our voices heard and respected at the national level, Mark Roeber will definitely listen to and respect local mining businesses, issues, and the contributions miners make to our local communities.
We need to elect someone who will protect the things that make Delta County a great place to live and raise a family; someone who understands it takes hard work and commitment to run a business — large or small, agricultural or mining; and someone who appreciates all the wonderful resources Delta County has to offer. Mark has personally staked his livelihood and reputation in this county and like me, loves what it represents. I urge you to vote Mark Roeber for Delta County Commissioner.
William Bear, Jr.
