As an active member of the Durango community for more than 21 years, serving on the board of directors of the Durango Arts Center, HomeAid Colorado, the Adaptive Sports Association, Affordable Housing Task Force and the Homebuilders Association of Southwest Colorado, Emil Wanatka brings a broad range of experience to the City Council.
In addition to supporting organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Animas Museum and Volunteers of America, he currently serves on the board of directors of the Durango Fire Protection District.
Can we afford not to have someone with this broad range of understanding and commitment to our town?
Emil Wanatka is a businessman who has provided badly needed jobs to Durango and will have a better understanding than most as to council decisions including the intended and unintended consequences of City Council decisions.
I strongly encourage voters to consider Emil Wanatka for one of the two open City Council seats.
Elliott S. Jones, Durango
