As a person who knows that Durango thrives because it is the center of commerce in La Plata County, Sweetie Marbury will take note of the fact that much of the revenue sources of the city are from people like me who live outside of the city and spend a great deal in Durango (to the detriment of our own communities).
Sweetie Marbury is tireless in pursuit of a wider and connected community that is founded on values that we can all agree on. As an individual in her chosen vocation of teaching, she was not content in retirement, and after a career in Cortez, continued to work in Kirtland. Sweeties dedication to childrens education is indicative of the type of effort on the communitys behalf we can expect if she is elected to Durango City Council.
It is a big sharing act, and all communities, however they are organized, need to work together. She is aware that, in reality, it is a wider community she will serve, in addition to the residents of Durango.
I believe that the election of Sweetie Marbury would best serve those ends. Her voice is a strong one and most represents that of the community. I urge Durango residents to cast one of their votes for Sweetie Marbury.
