Vote for Laydon

We have the privilege of living in a country where any eligible voting citizen has the opportunity to have a voice in the landscape and culture of the place in which they live. It only takes a few actions:

Gain knowledge. Look for the positive in people by accepting that no one is perfect. Identify and vote for those who take the time to listen, discuss and represent as many of your ideals and positions as humanly possible.

This year in the race for Douglas County commissioner, I am supporting Abe Laydon. Over the last couple of years, I have gone through a process of interacting with him and determining how close he was to my positions and ideals. Each encounter with Abe reminds me why I am proud to be a native, live in Colorado and call my home Douglas County. He shares the vision of balance in Douglas County of rural, city and suburbs, which can be difficult to find in other Colorado counties.

If you were born in Douglas County or moved to Douglas County, there is a reason you stay. If you are like Abe and I, it has everything to do with allowing the diversity of living styles and cultures to be preserved and encouraged. Abe has the experience and heart to ensure everyone is represented equally to maintain a great lifestyle in Douglas County. Please join me in this election, be involved, be positive, and be an Abe Laydon supporter (http://abeforcommissioner.com).
