It’s an honor and privilege to congratulate Commissioner Church on his re-election victory in the 2022 La Plata County Commissioner race. To everyone that supported our Independent campaign, I thank you from the bottom of my heart (and I’ll reach out to each of you). Congrats also to Brad Blake who ran a strong campaign that spoke to many citizens with his experience and good work. Those two and their families deserve our thanks for their work in the past and all that will require their efforts in the years ahead.

While our team hoped for a different result, I’m 100% confident in the integrity of the election and vote count. All three county commissioners deserve our advice, support, and encouragement to be successful on behalf of the citizens of La Plata County.

My hope remains that everyone embraces their role in making our community, our State of Colorado, our country, and the world a better place.



And as Teddy said…

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

― Theodore Roosevelt
