This letter originally appeared in the Greeley Tribune.

I fully support Perry Buck for Weld County Commissioner at Large.

During the twenty years I have known Perry, she has always been enthusiastic and willing to learn. It is so important that the Weld County Commissioners have a close working relationship with the municipalities in the county, and I know Perry will be accessible for all county residents.

While she worked in the minority in the state legislature, Perry passed fourteen bills by finding common ground across the aisle. She passed landmark legislation on telehealth services and other healthcare innovations that helped rural Colorado. She also passed bills helping community colleges, volunteer fire departments and farmers facing foreclosure.

Perry Buck works well with others and does not compromise her core beliefs. She stands strong on the Second Amendment, life and lowering taxes. Perry comes from an agricultural background and always promotes individual responsibility and personal accountability.

I look forward to a close working relationship between the Greeley City Council and the Weld County Commissioners. I know with Perry Buck on the Weld Commission we will have a leader who listens and cares about the concerns of municipal officials.

Please cast your ballot for the future of Weld County. Join me in supporting Perry Buck for Weld County Commissioner at Large.

Ed Clark, Greeley City Council
