Marsha brings the skills

To the editor,

We are pleased to endorse Marsha Porter-Norton for La Plata County commissioner. With deep roots in rural Southwest Colorado and a range of meaningful leadership experiences in La Plata County, Marsha is uniquely qualified to serve as our commissioner.

As long-term residents, we know the impact a skilled county commission can have. Now, as we work to live through and beyond the profound challenges to our health and economic wellbeing stemming from COVID-19, we will rely upon strong leadership to help guide our efforts.

Fortunately, we have a candidate in Marsha who can draw upon recent-relevant-hands-on leadership experience. A review of Marsha’s work highlights both the breadth of her involvement across a range of issues as well as the depth of her engagement in the details of successful initiatives aimed at improving health, promoting economic development and addressing environmental concerns. Perhaps most significantly, Marsha has demonstrated her skills in organizing diverse groups of people with different and often conflicting points of view and facilitating their work towards achieving durable solutions.

We encourage you to join with us and vote for Marsha Porter-Norton.

– Carol and Scott Wallace, Durango
