Mary and Joe Petrone: Ray Beck for city council
March 30, 2011
To the editor:
Craig and those who comprise our wonderful community have been well served by Ray Beck. We would like to publicly endorse his candidacy for a second term as a Craig City Council member.
There are many reasons for our support for his continuing work on the city council. Among these are Ray's highly noticeable and deep involvements in all aspects of the Craig community, as evidenced by his numerous civic contributions.
Our early and direct association with his care and commitment for the youth of Craig came during the creation of the Citizens Academic Scholarship. We applaud and support this creative award.
Ray positively and consistently impacts our community through his local civic engagement and advocacy for sustained economic development. His understanding of regional, state and national political contexts makes him particularly suited for his continuing work on city council.
His leadership contributions in Club 20, the Northwest Energy Steering Committee, Yampa Valley Economic Development Commission, Craig-Moffat County Airport Authority and Colorado Municipal League are but a few of his meaningful affiliations, which reflect his determination to serve his constituency at the highest levels.
We recognize and marvel at a consistent cohort of dedicated volunteers and public officials who are conspicuously active in promoting our community.
Ray is a vigorous member of this prominent and committed group. It is our hopeful aspiration that we will continue to benefit from his passion, devotion and allegiance to Craig and its citizens.
We know, through his reelection to the city council, that the citizens of Craig will again be well served by Ray Beck.
Mary and Joe Petrone
