I urge residents of HD 61 to keep Representative Millie Hamner in the State House. She should represent House District 61 because she has lived on the Western Slope for more than 30 years and understands and appreciates our unique mountain lifestyle.
She has visited us in the North Fork and Surface Creek communities many times since the new district boundaries were drawn and I know you will be as impressed with her as I have been. Millie understands the challenges of mountain communities' economies and the importance of supporting small business, tourism, education, the environment and our unique quality of life.
Recognizing that there is a direct relationship between health care, jobs and education, she knows that we need to support our rural doctors and health care providers in order to keep insurance rates affordable, remove burdens for physicians, and improve broadband capacity.
Millie knows that we need energy from coal, oil and gas, solar, wind, hydro, biomass and geothermal and that we need to keep investing new techniques and technologies for powering homes and businesses.
As a lifelong educator, Millie will fight for our kids so that each child gets a quality education and is prepared for the jobs of the future. She believes that education is the best economic driver we have.
Join me and vote for Millie Hamner for Colorado House District 61.
