Select our leaders wisely

By Kevin Lucy


Dear Editor:

As citizens of western Colorado and Delta County we all have the opportunity to speak our opinions by selecting those who will lead our local government. Especially now we need to take that opportunity very serious.

Our home is at a critical point that needs resourceful leaders to listen to all of the resourceful and talented people in our community (Delta County); only then will we be able to overcome the challenges that we face. We need leaders who will say "huddle up we can figure this out together." Those leaders then need to know when to walk in front of us and know when to walk with us.

I believe that Nancy Hovde is that kind of leader. Her "gathering of the troops" has been going on since she came to Delta County, past president of DMEA, Delta County Library District vice president, president of Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce, past board member Delta HopeWest, past president Delta County Ambulance District; I could continue. It is clear that Nancy enjoys being a part of this community. I am confident that Nancy will work hard to move Delta County forward in a positive way while still protecting our rich history and traditions that make this a great place to live. I truly believe that Nancy has the best interest of Delta County at heart and will work locally, regionally and statewide to advocate for those interests.

As we all consider the opportunity we have to select our leaders, I strongly encourage you to select Nancy Hovde.
