Finally, a light of wisdom, community and common sense illuminates our recent spiritual darkness! In cosmic sync with Comet Neowise, Interim City Manager Amber Blake announced her bid to run for the very position that she has so bravely, capably and wisely commanded leading into and over the course of the pandemic.
Please, beloved citizens of my native hometown, let our City Council know better than to hand off managing Durango to either of two out-of-state male contenders, one of them from Texas.
I have direct experience that proves the personal and professional integrity and old-Durango family and community solidness which emanates from Amber Blake. I am Amber’s wholistic fitness coach and high performance yoga teacher as well as her body-worker. When you’re sleeping? Amber is often out in Test Tracks, hammering out my running workouts – long runs, intervals, hill repeats – via headlamp to faithfully finish her workouts before her endless days of thankless yet pivotal meetings.
When you’re relaxing? Amber is digging deep into research for her next meeting, presentation or city management plan. Amber is the most amazing wife and mother to her family, and without doubt a most remarkable bright light that is so under the radar of everyone, yet she serves and manages our still semi-heavenly hamlet.
Don’t turn it over to out-of-staters. Shop local – especially for city managers.
