Herald Democrat — MARCH 24, 2016 — PAGE 3
Delegates praised for their involvement Continued from page 2 “The other promise I made to you was that you’d see me, you’d know your district attorney. I don’t know if I’ve kept that promise. We’ve had a lot going on in our judicial district.” Brown praised Lake County’s Democratic committee for its increased participation in the democratic process this election season, and urged those present to stay involved. “This is a really terrific outpouring in the interest in the democratic process. And it’s not going to end today, and it’s not going to end after the primary,” Brown said. “If it happens that you’re chosen candidate is not on the ballot in November, this cannot end for you. Issues that we face from a local level and a national level are of critical importance.” State Rep. Millie Hamner, who represents Lake County in House District 61, said she
will focus on crucial issues important to smaller communities like Lake County. “This legislative session, I will focus on what to do with the rising cost of health care across our small communities on the Western Slope, the shortfalls in the way we fund our schools, and the ongoing mission to preserve the quality of our water and environment,” Hamner said. State Sen. Kerry Donovan was not able to attend, but did send in a statement which was read aloud. Donovan said despite a government divided among party lines, their is still important legislation being pursued. “(A divided government) has not prevented our caucus from working on meaningful legislation such as making it easier for us to pay off our student loans, increase government transparency and protecting and growing small business in our state,” the statement from Donovan read.

FOR LAKE COUNTY COMMISSIONER An effective county commissioner must have qualities of leadership, management and an ability to collaborate. Leadership - While mayor for 8 years, I led in numerous ways, but those that you can appreciate every day include: the prescription drug discount program; the warranty program that homeowners can purchase to cover their sewer and water lines; forcing Eagle County to build a bus barn which better reects Lake County values toward architecture; and beginning the process which culminated in the city foreclosing on the Tabor Grand rather than let a developer who owed the city money to keep the building and the money. I obtained grants which provided a free downtown wireless network (no longer necessary), an entrepreneurship program at CMC to help develop local business and, when the economy collapsed, food for all local food banks.

Management - Every day as mayor I supervised the city police, street and re departments; the animal shelter and administrative services. I red a re chief, hired 2 directors of the street department and helped select managers and develop policies for animal shelter. Collaboration - Every day as a leader or manager requires collaboration and for the mayor that meant working with agencies and programs that are outside of Lake County. I was appointed by Governor Ritter to serve on the Wildre Advisory Group and also served on the Arkansas River Basin Water Forum, El Pomar Mountain Region and numerous other regional and statewide organizations to benet our community.
