Letter: Two candidates were impressive

-A A +A
By The Staff

After attending the forum presenting candidates for County Commissioner, I was very impressed by two candidates for District One, either one of which I wish I could vote for. (I don’t live in District One; I do not know either candidate personally.)

Both Rock Ulibarri and Ron Ortega spoke about their dedication to the ordinary people of San Miguel County and their opposition to the influence of special interests and to self-serving county commissioners. Rock Ulibarri (check his website) is especially impressive in his history of community involvement and concern for genuine economic development that benefits us citizens, not some outsider company, but Ron Ortega seems also firmly committed to the good of the people of San Miguel County. If you live in District One, please find out more about these men and what they plan to do if either has the opportunity to serve on the County Commission.

Thanks to the Committee for the People and the Las Vegas Optic for sponsoring this informative event, and to David Giuliani for effectively moderating the forum.
