COURTNEY HOLM FOR EAGLE COUNTY COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 2
Courtney Holm has thrown her hat into the ring and announced her candidacy for the Eagle County Commissioner for District 2 in the great state of Colorado.
Courtney quickly realized that she could do a lot of great things for Eagle County. She is honored to run for Eagle County Commissioner.
In her announcement speech, she stated,
"I am honored that the Republican party approached me to run for Eagle County Commissioner District 2. I have reflected and truly recognize that opportunity knocked and I needed to answer the door to represent the interests of this mountain community that I love. It seems that sometimes its the detours in life that turn out to be the most pivotal and the most rewarding.
I grew up watching my father serve the medical needs of many people in Eagle County and my mother teach by example that volunteering and serving others was fundamental. I've learned a great deal from my parents, especially to help and serve people.
County Commissioner is a position that impacts the daily lives of our County residents and vistors, and that opens great potential for accomplishing good things. I want to help find solutions that improve this beautiful place that we live. I hope to find ways to get the economy moving and bringing stable prosperity to Eagle County. I can remember when the street I grew up on was not paved and the ski patrolmen built the houses in the summer and off season. I remember when there were no stop lights in Eagle and the center of Vail had a 4 way stop. Now we have round-a-bouts. This is a special place and has special needs.
Recreation has many forms in the mountains and I want to insure that we maintain the ability for those activities through preservation and access. We have the best of both worlds here, where you can do your shopping down the street and then climb over the hillside to stand in some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
Most importantly, time changes many things, technology, growth, and we need to make decisions for Eagle County according to how the people in the county change and grow. It's important that our spending is done in a way that is reasonable and makes sense.
I can't make any promises but one. I promise to listen. I want to hear what the people of this community want and need and more importantly why.
So I hope that you will support me in my candidacy for Eagle County Commissioner for District 2."
