To the editor:
I have voted for Jo Ann Baxter for Colorado House District 57, and here is why.
Ms. Baxter has lived and worked on the western slope for 38 years, with many years of experience in teaching and managing. She clearly cares about the education of our children.
This is vitally important as these children are our future. Her doctorate in education makes her uniquely qualified to take Colorado into the 21st century, a century that will revolve around our citizens’ capabilities to handle the ever-changing jobs of the future and to compete not only within Colorado and the US, but with the world.
I have discussed the future with Jo Ann and know that she is concerned about the balance of economic development and environmental protection. Her passion revolves around the future of the people of the Western Slope.
Jo Ann Baxter is a voice for all of us. Please consider voting for her in this election.
