La Plata County Commissioner

Jack Turner

 Independent Local Candidate


Recovery and Reinvention

If elected, 

As an Independent, I will…

…serve citizens of La Plata County without obligation or favor to political parties or special interest groups.

…bridge a partisan divide to rebuild trust in county government and each other.

…seek common ground and create working relationships with people from all walks of life. Our family has done that locally for six generations.

…be considerate and responsive to citizen input without paralysis by political agenda, status quo, entrenched bureaucracy, out-of-town consultants, and endless hearings and committee meetings.

These times require common-sense leadership, willingness to put ego aside for the greater good, and the ability to foster efficiency and expediency to get the County’s work done and adapt to a new world.

My top six priorities for Recovery & Reinvention

  1. Safety and security for La Plata County citizens and visitors.
  2. County-wide food security and self-reliance (What lessons have we learned from COVID-19?).
  3. Responsible and proactive care for our land, air, water, and wildlife.
  4. Fiscal responsibility, accountability, and transparency.
  5. Sensible economic development that will improve the quality of life and opportunities for locals.
  6. Immediate solutions to address affordable workforce housing, livable wages, and processes to help businesses recover, reinvent, and succeed.

I’m grateful to family, friends, campaign volunteers, contributors, and the 1000+ citizens who signed a petition to put me on the ballot for County Commissioner.  It’s been a heroic effort during a time of pandemic restrictions and economic challenge. OUR TEAM (100% volunteers and no paid consultants) demonstrates that people from all walks of life and political viewpoints can work together.
