Sarah Woodmansee: Primaries offer so many choices

There are so many choices in our primaries this year, what can we do?

Asking these questions and looking for their answers might be help.

  • Education

Our children will need employment. They will need mathematical and computer skills that can be applied to new engineering fields, and they need computer literacy. Who will help create good public vocational education, computer literacy and training in our schools?

  • Investment

We need a diverse and thriving business community in Routt County. Which candidate best represents our special attributes and will be a good model of our community?

  • Growth

Colorado and Routt county are growing. Which candidate has the best plan to address water, housing, transportation and the medical challenges that come with a larger population?

  • Environment

Our environment is providing many needed requirements for living. What does the candidate say about how to protect and advance the services our environment is giving to us? Open space, water resources and quality, recreational opportunities, agriculture and forestry; all are parts of our existence that aid and can continue to enhance our living here if they are tended

  • Effectiveness

Cooperation within the state is needed for initiating changes. While all can present objectives, who can actually deliver the programs and changes you think are important? Candidate history in political office, evidence of collaboration, committee membership, endorsements by others, all will play a role in how effectively your candidate may govern.

Make your choice work for you. Use these questions and make up your own then mail in your ballot.
