2020 Election: Commissioner candidates focusing on foothills, pandemic and finances
Five candidates for two Jefferson County commissioner seats say even though they don’t live in the foothills, they feel they can represent the area’s interests.
The candidates agreed that issues in the foothills — specifically with development — are different than down the hill, and they are willing to listen and learn before making decisions.
They also say that finances and public health are the two most pressing issues for the county.
Two of the three county commissioner seats in Jefferson County are up for election on Nov. 3. Current commissioner Libby Szabo is running for a final four-year term in District 1, along with a pair of challengers — Tracy Kraft-Tharp and Hans Romer. Commissioner Casey Tighe is term-limited, so Joni Inman and Andy Kerr are squaring off for the District 2 seat.

"Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.” -King T'Challa, Black Panther
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it. ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. ~Winston Churchill
