As a recent Fort Lewis College graduate settling in to make Durango my official home, I want to know that it is a safe place to start my future. With the City Council election happening, I would like to bring attention to the candidate I believe to be most deserving of the position: Connie Imig.
Connie is a woman of integrity who is committed to making Durango a realistic place to live. She is dedicated to creating more jobs and improving the affordable-housing market so that people who love Durango have the opportunity to live and have successful lives in Durango.
Also, as a local business owner, she understands the importance of making downtown Durango thrive. As we continue in this economic slump, it is crucial that our representatives do everything they can to keep doors open and visitors coming.
With high expectations and much action to be taken, I have no doubt that Connie would get it done. The evidence of her passion and commitment to Durango is everywhere: The Durango Arts Center, Habitat for Humanity, Natural Land Preservations Board, Southwest Conservation Corps, Affordable Housing Alliance, the lists go on and on. It is quite possible that she already has affected your life in a positive way and you did not know it.
Voting for Connie for City Council is the only way to ensure that Durango will continue to flourish and remain the town we all love.
