Letter: Savannah Wolfson is clear, forthright on the issues

I will be voting for Savannah “Savvy” Wolfson to become our next Colorado State representative from House District 26. I first met Savvy during the forced lockdowns in 2020. Savvy was impassioned to not only open up the local schools throughout Routt County, but she also beat the street to open up our restaurants prior to Christmas in 2020. She voiced the need to get our kids back in school, out of masks and back into the social experience. She also canvassed several businesses including restaurants to understand their urgency to reopen in late 2020. Restaurants and most businesses in Routt County were actually reopened before the end of 2020. Thanks, Savvy!

I find it refreshing to meet a candidate who is clear and forthright in how she stands on the specific issues. Savvy has taken the time to understand the issues, has listened to opposing opinions and has come to an educated stance on the issues. You know where Savvy stands on the issues and she will not play politics with her vote or throw out a talking point to satisfy a constituent. However she will respectfully listen to differing opinions and she will always strive to achieve common ground. 

Savvy understands the struggles Northwest Colorado families are facing: inflation, rising housing costs, child care, mental health of our children, the drug epidemic, rural verses urban, impacts of the reintroduction of wolves, increase in crime and the continued actual breakdown of the family. Raising her family in Oak Creek has put Savvy on the front line dealing with these issues, and she will not only be a strong advocate for rural Colorado, but will also be an advocate for protecting our families. I am a proud 34-year resident of Steamboat who will be voting for Savannah Wolfson to be our next Colorado State Representative from District 26.
