Beatriz Soto is an architect and conservationist who believes that the board of commissioners needs to do a better job of listening to the needs and concerns of ALL people in our community, not just a select few. If elected to Commissioner for District 2, she’ll always put the interests of hard-working families first as the board confronts issues like wildfires and drought, unemployment, housing, and our county’s reliance on the boom and bust cycles of a single industry.
Twenty six year incumbent John Martin has time and time again sided with special interests over the needs of Garfield County residents. In his tenure, he has advocated for weakening lands protections, supported a failed $1.5 million lawsuit to protect industry profits, and even misused taxpayer funds.
Garfield County Commissioner, District 3
Leslie Robinson is a 40-year resident of Rifle who runs a local non-profit. She has fought tirelessly to bring economic relief to our area and protect the Western Slope’s water, air quality, and way of life. She’s running for Commissioner for District 3 and if elected, she’ll fight for term limits to put an end to career politicians on the board, put science and people before politics and industry profits, and diversify our economy to create new economic opportunities while protecting our air, water, and land.
Mike Samson is running for his 4th term. Samson supported spending $1.5 million in taxpayer dollars on a failed lawsuit to protect special interest supporters from following common-sense rules that protect our health and has consistently put industry profits over the people of Garfield county.
